    Release Information

    Statement introduced in Junos OS Mobility Release 11.2W.


    Configure the idle timeout for the access point name (APN). The idle timeout is the duration that the packet data protocol (PDP) context or bearer waits to receive a data packet before timing out. After the idle timeout expires, the broadband gateway takes down the PDP context or bearer. Setting the idle timeout ensures that if no data is being sent for the duration specified, then the PDP context and bearers can be taken down, and the gateway’s resources can be freed.


    idle-timeout—Idle timeout for the APN.

    Range: 0 through 300 minutes

    Default: 0 minutes indicates that idle timeout will not be detected. PDP contexts or bearers will remain active indefinitely even if there is no data being transmitted.
