    Release Information

    Statement introduced in Junos OS Mobility Release 11.2W.


    Configure the restriction value for the access point name (APN) based on the applications allowed on this APN and on other APNs configured on the broadband gateway. When you configure a restriction value for an APN, the restriction value determines the traffic that can be sent by a subscriber on that APN to other APNs. For example, subscribers cannot send Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) or Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) messages to subscribers on an APN that does not support MMS or WAP.

    Table 1 displays the valid restriction values that you can configure.
