Configuring Diameter

You configure Diameter by specifying the remote peers, the endpoint origin attributes, and network elements that associate routes with peers. Only the master Diameter instance is currently supported. You can configure alternative values for the master instance only in the context of the master routing instance.

To configure Diameter base protocol:

  1. Configure the origin realm and origin host of the diameter master instance.

    See Configuring the Origin Attributes of the Diameter Instance

  2. Configure the Diameter peers.

    See Configuring Diameter Peers

  3. (Optional) Configure the Diameter network elements.

    See Configuring Diameter Network Elements

  4. (Optional) Configure trace options for troubleshooting the configuration.

    See Tracing Diameter Base Protocol Processes.
