Table 1: General Tab

Field

Description

Interface Name

The interface name

IP Address/Mask

The IP address and mask of the interface

Bandwidth

The allocated bandwidth

Layer

Layer 3 (IP) or Layer 2 (switches)

Node

The node which contains the interface

Link

The link which uses the interface

Oper Status

The operational status of the interface (active, passive, planned, down, unknown)

Admin Status

The administration status of the interface (active passive, planned, down)

Table 2: Advanced Tab - Layer 3

Field

Description

VCI/DLCI

The virtual circuit identifier or the data link connection identifier for ATM frame relay

VPN

The VPN being used on the interface

VRF

The virtual routing and forwarding instance name

VRouter

The virtual router name

HSRP

The hot standby routing protocol

Encapsulation

The interface encapsulation type

CoS In/Out Policy

See Paragon Planner Class of Service Overview.

OSPF PID

See Paragon Planner Routing Instances Overview.

Multipoint

The multipoint interface

APS Group

The automatic protection switching group

APS Protected Address

The automatic protection switching address

APS Protected Node

The automatic protection switching node

Vlan ID

The VLAN associated with this interface, if any

Aggregated Interface

The aggregated interface (e.g., ae0, ae1 for Juniper) associated with this interface.

To associate an interface with a link, modify the link’s Location tab. Click on the ... button next to each Interface textbox to bring up the Select Interface window. Highlight the interface you wish to associate with that end of the link and click “OK”.



Advanced Tab - Layer 2



Encapsulation

The interface encapsulation type

Vlan ID

The VLAN associated with this interface, if any

Redundant Trunk Group

Redundant trunk groups can be configured on EX-series switches so that when the active link in the group fails, a secondary link will start forwarding data traffic.

Aggregated Interface

The aggregated interface (e.g., ae0, ae1 for Juniper) associated with this interface.

Port Mode

Access (SW_ACCESS) or Trunk (SW_TRUNK)

CoS In/Out Policy

See Paragon Planner Class of Service Overview.

Tagging

Specifies the tagging type (For Juniper, VLAN_TAGGING is for single tagging, STACKED_TAGGING is for double taggin, and FLEX_TAGGING can be configured on the physical interface to support different tagging types on different logical interfaces of the same physical interface).
