Specifying UNI Settings for Services with 802.1Q Interface Types

 

To set UNI attributes for 802.1Q interfaces complete the following procedure.

  1. Enter information in the UNI Settings page.
  2. Fill in the fields in the UNI Settings page according to the following table:

    Field

    Action

    Traffic Treatment Settings

    Ethernet option

    Select dot1q from the list.

    The Ethernet option you choose determines the other options you can select and specify on the page.

    Customer traffic type

    Single VLAN is the only option for 802.1Q interface types.

    Select Transport single vlan to transport the traffic for a specific VLAN across the network. When you select this option, the service provisioner is prompted for the VLAN-ID when creating a service order based on this service definition. You need to specify the Outer Tag protocol ID.

    Select Transport VLAN range to limit the traffic across the network to a specific range of VLANs.

    If you select this option, the service provisioner is prompted for the VLAN-ID range when creating a service order based on this service definition.

    Note: Make sure to check Editable in Service Order if you want the service provisioner to be able to override this setting.

    VLAN ID selection

    Indicate how the VLAN ID is determined:

    • Select manually—Allows the service provider to specify the VLAN ID. This option is normally used when no VLAN normalization is applied. Specify the VLAN ID range in VLAN range for manual input.

      Note: Make sure to check Editable in Service Order if you want the service provisioner to be able to override this setting.

    • Auto pick—This option is normally used when VLAN normalization is applied. Specify the VLAN ID pool in VLAN range for auto-pick.

      Note: Make sure to check Editable in Service Order if you want the service provisioner to be able to override this setting.

    VLAN range for auto-pick

    Specify the VLAN ID pool.

    Range: 1 through 4094

    VLAN range for manual input

    Specify the VLAN ID range.

    Range: 1 through 4094

    Outer Tag protocol ID

    Select the outer tag protocol ID if the Customer traffic type is Transport single VLAN:

    • 0x88a8

    • 0x8100

    • 0x9100

    Note: For an interface, you must configure a physical port with the possible Tag Protocol Identifiers (TPIDs) either manually or through a template. Otherwise, the service creation fails for all TPIDs except 0x8100. To configure the TPIDs manually, use the following commands:

    set interfaces ae0 aggregated-ether-options ethernet-switch-profile tag-protocol-id 0x9100

    set interfaces ae0 aggregated-ether-options ethernet-switch-profile tag-protocol-id 0x88a8

    set interfaces ae0 aggregated-ether-options ethernet-switch-profile tag-protocol-id 0x8100

    Editable in Service Order

    To allow the service provisioner to override the MTU setting, select the check box for those options.

    Interface Settings

    Physical IF encapsulation

    Select the default physical encapsulation scheme to be used by service orders based on this service definition. We recommend you select flexible-ethernet-services.

    Logical IF encapsulation

    Constrained by your selection in the Physical IF encapsulation box. If you selected the recommended physical encapsulation mode of flexible-ethernet-services, then your only option is to select vlan-vpls for the logical encapsulation method.

    MTU Settings

    Default MTU (Bytes)

    You can specify an MTU value in this field. The default value for MTU is 1522.

    To see the permitted range for the MTU value, select the Editable in Service Order check box. The MTU range is 1522 through 9192.

    MTU Range (Bytes)

    If you select the check box Editable in Service Order, you can specify a value range for MTU (in bytes). The permitted range for MTU is 1522 through 9192.

    Note: Ultimately, the system establishes the MTU by multiplying the value you specify in the Default MTU (Bytes) field by the value you specify for MTU Factor.

    Calculation of Burst-Size

    Specify the default bandwidth value, in Mbps.

    Default: 10 Mbps

    Range: 1 Mbps through 100,000 Mbps

    Calculate Burst Size

    Select the preferred option for calculating the burst size:

    • MTU Based

      If you select the option MTU Based, you can specify a value for MTU Factor in the range 1 through 1087902.

      The default value for MTU Factor is 1.

    • Line Rate Based

      If you select the option Line Rate Based, you can specify a value for Burst Period in the range 1 through 7450 milliseconds.

      The default value for Burst Period is 1.

    Note: The Calculate Burst Size list is enabled only when you select the Enable rate limiting checkbox.

    The following illustration shows the appearance of the Calculate Burst-Size panel parameters if you select the Line Rate Based option.
