Configuring Diameter Network Elements

A Diameter network element (DNE) consists of a list of prioritized peers and a set of forwarding rules. The forwarding rules define individual routes through a set of associated destinations, functions, and metrics.

Before you configure Diameter network elements, perform the following task:

To configure a Diameter network element:

  1. Specify the name of the network element.
    [edit diameter]user@host# set network-element dne25
  2. Associate a Diameter peer with the network element and set the priority for the peer.
    [edit diameter network-element dne25]user@host# set peer peer1 priority 1
  3. Specify a route that is reachable through the network element based on the forwarding rules that you define.
    [edit diameter network-element dne25]user@host# set forwarding route dne-route2
  4. Specify a metric for the route.
    [edit diameter network-element dne25 forwarding route dne-route2]user@host# set metric 15
  5. (Optional) Associate the route with a destination host and realm.
    [edit diameter network-element dne25 forwarding route dne-route2]user@host# set destination host host5 realm example.com
  6. (Optional) Specify a function (application) associated with the route.
    [edit diameter network-element dne25 forwarding route dne-route2]user@host# set function jsrc
