Configuring APS Load Sharing


To configure load sharing between two working–protect circuit pair:

  1. In configuration mode, go to the [edit interfaces interface-name sonet-options aps] hierarchy level.
  2. Configure the paired-group option when configuring one of the circuits on one of the routers. In this statement, the group-name variable is the name of the group you assigned to one of the circuits with the working-circuit and protect-circuit statements.

The Junos OS automatically configures the remainder of the load-sharing setup based on the group name.
