Configuring the LTE Mini-PIM as the Primary Interface
Figure 1 illustrates a scenario where the LTE Mini-PIM is installed on a SRX320 Services Gateway and functions as the primary interface. This procedure assumes that the LTE Mini-PIM is installed in slot 1 on the SRX320 Services Gateway.
The LTE Mini-PIM can be installed in any of the Mini-PIM slots on the SRX320, SRX340, SRX345, and SRX550M Services Gateways.
Before you begin the procedure, ensure that dl0.0 is not configured as a backup. If dl0.0 is configured as a backup option for any interface on the SRX Series device, then this configuration overrides the configuration outlined in this procedure, and the LTE Mini-PIM will function as a backup interface.
Use the show interfaces | display set | match backup-option
| match dl0.0 command to check whether any interface uses dl0.0
as a backup interface. If dl0.0 is configured as a backup interface,
then delete the configuration by issuing the following command:
delete interfaces interface-name unit 0 backup-options interface dl0.0
To configure the LTE Mini-PIM as a primary interface:
- Configure the dialer interface:
user@host# set interfaces dl0 unit 0 family inet negotiate-address
user@host# set interfaces dl0 unit 0 family inet6 negotiate-address
user@host# set interfaces dl0 unit 0 dialer-options pool dialer-pool-number
user@host# set interfaces dl0 unit 0 dialer-options dial-string dial-number
user@host# set interfaces dl0 unit 0 dialer-options always-on
- Configure the dialer pool for the LTE Mini-PIM physical
user@host# set interfaces cl-1/0/0 dialer-options pool number
- Configure the profile. The Subscriber Identity Module
(SIM) uses a profile to establish a connection with the network. You
can configure up to 16 profiles for each SIM card. The LTE Mini-PIM
supports two SIM cards and so you can configure a total of 32 profiles,
although only one profile can be active at a time.
user@host# run request modem wireless create-profile profile-id profile-id cl-1/0/0 slot sim-slot-number access-point-name apn-name authentication-method none
sim-slot-number is the slot on the Mini-PIM in which the SIM card is inserted.
- Verify that the profile is configured successfully:
user@host# run show modem wireless profiles cl-1/0/0 slot 1
- Activate the SIM card:
user@host# set interfaces cl-1/0/0 act-sim sim-slot-number
- Select the profile and configure the radio access type
for the SIM card:
user@host# set interfaces cl-1/0/0 cellular-options sim sim-slot-number select-profile profile-id profile-id
user@host# set interfaces cl-1/0/0 cellular-options sim sim-slot-number radio-access automatic
If a SIM card is installed in the second slot, then select the profile and configure the radio access type for the secondary SIM card as well.
- Verify the status of the wireless network and dialer interface:
user@host# run show modem wireless network
user@host# run show interfaces dl0.0
If the LTE Mini-PIM gets an IP address with a mask of /32 from the service provider, the user has to configure the default gateway information using the set interfaces cl-interface cellular-options sim sim-slot gateway ip-address/mask command to make the Mini-PIM accept the assigned IP address.
