Configuring Switching Mode

 

To configure switching mode in unidirectional mode:

  1. In configuration mode, go to the [edit interfaces interface-name sonet-options aps] hierarchy level.
  2. Configure unidirectional mode by setting the unidirectional option.
    Note

    On interfaces with unidirectional APS support configured, revertive mode and load sharing between circuits are not supported.

To configure switching mode in bidirectional mode:

  1. In configuration mode, go to the [edit interfaces interface-name sonet-options aps] hierarchy level.
  2. Configure bidirectional mode to restore the default behavior by setting the bidirectional option.

Note

By default, APS supports only SONET/SDH LTE that is provisioned for bidirectional mode.
