    Configuring SRC ACP to Manage the Edge Network (C-Web Interface)

    To configure SRC ACP to manage the edge network, you must:

    1. Configuring Network Interfaces in the Directory
    2. Configuring Bandwidths for Subscribers (Edge Network)
    3. Assigning Network Interfaces to Subscribers
    4. Configuring Bandwidths for Services

    Configuring Network Interfaces in the Directory

    How you add network interfaces to the directory depends on the network type:

    • Edge networks—Specify the network interfaces of the routers and the switches in the access network between subscribers and the SRC network.
    • Backbone congestion points—Add only VRs and their interfaces.

    To configure the network interfaces of the routers and the switches in the access network:

    1. Click Configure > Shared>Admission Control, expand the desired device.
    2. If the device does not exist, from the Create new list, select Device. Type a name for the new device in the dialog box, and click OK.

      The Device pane appears.

    3. Enter information as described in the Help text in the main pane, and click Apply.

    Configuring Bandwidths for Subscribers (Edge Network)

    You must configure bandwidths for subscribers that SRC ACP manages in the edge region of the network.

    If congestion points cannot be derived from network access information, you must provide the following information for each subscriber.

    • Provisioned downstream bandwidth
    • Provisioned upstream bandwidth
    • Actual downstream bandwidth for the current subscriber session
    • Actual upstream bandwidth for the current subscriber session
    • List of DNs of interfaces associated with congestion points

    For further information, see SRC PE Network Guide.

    To configure bandwidths for subscribers:

    1. Click Configure > Subscribers.
    2. In the side pane, expand the desired retailer, expand the desired subscriber folder, and expand the desired subscriber.

      The Admission Control pane appears.

    3. Click Create, enter information as described in the Help text in the main pane, and click Apply.

    Assigning Network Interfaces to Subscribers

    You must assign to the subscriber object interfaces (including the router interfaces) for all congestion points between the subscriber and the router.

    Note: You must define the interface in the directory before you can assign it to a residential subscriber (see Configuring Network Interfaces in the Directory).

    To assign an interface:

    1. Click Configure>Subscribers.
    2. In the side pane, expand the desired retailer, and then click the desired subscriber folder.

      The Admission Control pane appears.

    3. Enter information in the Congestion Points box as described in the Help text in the main pane, and click Apply.

    Configuring Bandwidths for Services

    Upstream and downstream bandwidths must be specified for services that SRC ACP manages. You can obtain bandwidths for services in two ways:

    • Provide static values through the directory.
    • Allow the values to be provided through the SAE core API.

      For example, a business partner may need to specify the required values for a particular piece of content through the SAE core API.

    To configure values for services:

    1. For global configuration, click Configure>Services>Global and expand Service.
    2. For scope configuration, click Configure>Services>Scope and expand Service.
    3. In the side pane, expand the desired service and click Admission Control.

      The Admission Control pane appears.

    4. Click Create, enter information as described in the Help text in the main pane, and click Apply.
