Specifying UNI Settings

 

In this step, you provide the UNI service attributes for this service definition. The attributes you set depend on whether you are setting attributes for a port, an 802.1Q interface, a Q-in-Q interface, or a flexible VLAN tagging:

Specifying UNI Settings for Port-to-Port Services

To set UNI attributes for a port-to-port service, 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 port-port from the list.

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

    Customer traffic type

    Select N/A. For port-to-port services, all traffic is always transported.

    VLAN ID selection

    In port-to-port services, all traffic and all VLANs on one port are transported to all other ports.

    Editable in Service Order

    Select this check box to allow the service provisioner to override the MTU setting.

    Interface Settings

    Physical IF encapsulation

    Select ethernet-vpls, the only valid physical interface encapsulation method allowed for port-to-port services.

    Logical IF encapsulation

    You cannot change this field because it is not relevant to port-to-port services.

    MTU Settings

    Default MTU (Bytes)

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

    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

    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 Calculate Burst-Size panel parameters if you select the Line Rate Based option.

    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:
