    Configuring Member Interfaces and Interface Family for Aggregated Tethered Services Interfaces

    ATS interfaces are similar to aggregated Ethernet interfaces; however, ATS interfaces do not support Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP). ATS interfaces enable load balancing across links pointing to the same service card on the CSE2000.

    When you connect a PTX5000 or a PTX3000 router to a CSE2000, two ATS interfaces (ats0 and ats1) are created. The interfaces of a PTX Series router that connect to a CSE2000 are configured as the member interfaces of the ATS interfaces. Doing so associates the physical links of the router with the logical bundle of the ATS interfaces. You must also specify the constituent physical links by including the 802.3ad statement. All the configurations are performed on the PTX Series router.

    To configure the member interfaces and the interface family for the ATS interfaces:

    1. Configure the member interfaces of the ATS interface bundle.
      [edit interfaces]user@host# set interface-name gigether-options 802.3ad atsx

      Note: The CSE2000 has two service card slots that can accommodate one service card each (ESC0 or ESC1). For both the data plane, the interfaces associated with these cards are represented by a logical interface atsX (where X = 0 or 1). If the service card ESC0 is connected to the PTX Series router, then you use the interface ats0 to represent the service card, whereas if the service card ESC1 is connected, then you use the interface ats1.

    2. Configure an interface family for the ATS interface bundle.
      [edit interfaces]user@host# set atsx unit number family (inet | inet6 | mpls)
