IMS AAA Server Administrator
The IMS AAA Server Administrator is a Java-based application used to configure the IMS AAA Server. The administrator uses 3GPP IMS terminology and allows you to directly describe your 3GPP WLAN network in terms of network elements and their functions. The Administrator runs under Solaris 10.
The main configuration dialogs of the IMS AAA Server Administrator are:
- Local Network Element— This dialog is used to configure the IMS AAA Server identity. You also use this dialog to configure how the server transports RADIUS and Diameter messages to other 3GPP WLAN network elements in your network.
- Remote Network Elements—This dialog is used to define the other RADIUS and Diameter network elements the IMS AAA Server will be communicating with in your 3GPP WLAN network. It is also used to assign the function to the Remote Network Element, and to configure the communication between the IMS AAA Server and the Remote Network Element. Certain routing rules are also configured using this dialog.
- Policy—This dialog is used to configure local profiles and profile selection, which provide enhanced security for authorizing requests.
- Request Routing—This dialog is used to configure explicit routing rules, and to view the order in which all routing rules are evaluated in the IMS AAA Server.
- Statistics—This dialog is used to display the various statistics collected by the IMS AAA Server.
- Server Management—This dialog is used to configure the server access control, define event logging, and configure SNMP alerts.
NOTE: We recommend you have a map of the network the IMS AAA Server is going to reside in so that you can plan out the configuration steps for defining the various Remote Network Elements in the network.
The IMS AAA Server Administrator presents the above configuration dialogs in a logical order for administering the various IMS AAA Server features. For example, you need to configure the Local Network Element (the Juniper IMS AAA Server) first, including the server identity, and the transport of RADIUS and Diameter messages, so that the server can communicate with the Remote Network Elements. Next you want to define all your Remote Network Elements and configure the communication to them, and so on.
