Login Events and Processes Overview
Because of the different ways that residential and enterprise subscribers connect, the login interactions between the components differ according to the type of subscriber. Because residential customers can connect by Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP), Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), or static IP addresses, the interactions between the SRC components differ according to the method of connection that a residential subscriber uses. However, there is only one type of login interaction—the subscriber interface login interaction—for enterprise subscribers.
Logins to plug-ins can occur during the login to the service activation engine (SAE) or during the activation of subscriptions. For these processes, many of the interactions between the SRC components are the same regardless of the type of subscriber and the type of connection.
