Use Mesh Tags to connect EHub

SD-WAN branch site

This toggle button is enabled by default. If this button is enabled, CSO uses mesh tags to automatically form the overlay tunnel between the site and the enterprise hubs.

Disable this toggle button if you want to manually create static tunnel (per WAN link) between the branch site and the enterprise hubs. If you disable this option, you must manually enable at least one WAN link to connect to the enterprise hub by using the Connects to Enterprise Hubs toggle button in the Advanced Settings of the WAN link.

WAN Links

For each WAN link, you can edit the following properties:

Re-Deploy WAN Link

Enterprise hub site

SD-WAN branch site

Click the toggle button to enable editing the WAN parameters of the partially deployed WAN link.

Link Type

Enterprise hub site

SD-WAN branch site

Select MPLS or an Internet link.

Access Type

SD-WAN branch site

You cannot edit the Access Type field because you cannot add the same WAN link with different access types as it depends on the slots configured on the device. If needed, you can delete the WAN link and add a new WAN link.

PPPoE/PPP

SD-WAN branch site

Click the toggle button to enable or disable authenticated address assignment for the WAN link by using PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) or PPP (Point-to-Point Protocol). You can enable PPPoE or PPP per WAN link. If you’ve enabled this toggle button for a WAN link, in the PPPoE/PPP Settings section, you can modify the username, password, and the authentication protocol. You can enable PPPoE or PPP on MPLS-based or internet-based WAN links.

PPPoE works with Ethernet, ADSL, and VDSL access types while PPP works with the LTE access type.

Note:

The PPPoE/PPP toggle button is not supported for Internet links with LTE access type.

Access Point Name (APN)

SD-WAN branch site

Edit the access point name (APN), for the CPE device, which is specified by the service provider.

This field is displayed only if you’ve enabled the PPPoE/PPP toggle button for MPLS links with LTE as the access type. If you’ve disabled the PPPoE/PPP toggle button for these links, CSO uses the default APN settings.

MTU

Enterprise hub site

SD-WAN branch site

Edit the maximum transmission unit (MTU) size for the media or protocol. The supported MTU range can vary depending on the device, interface type, network topology, and other individual requirements.
Note:

Editing the MTU value of a WAN link can affect the traffic flow on that link.

Editing the MTU values of all the OAM-enabled WAN links of a site at the same time might result in tunnel flapping. You must ensure that at least one OAM-enabled WAN link always remains undisrupted for a site. For example, if you have a site with four WAN links (including two links that support OAM traffic), you can edit the MTU values of all the WAN links except one OAM-enabled link at the same time. After the edit is complete and the changes are saved, you can edit the site again and update the remaining WAN link.

Egress Bandwidth

Enterprise hub site

SD-WAN branch site

Edit the maximum bandwidth (in Mbps) allowed for the WAN link.

Underlay Address Families

Enterprise hub site

SD-WAN branch site

  • For enterprise hub sites—You can modify the Static IP Prefix and Gateway IP address of the device.

  • For SD-WAN branch sites—Click either IPv4 or IPv6, or both IPv4 and IPv6 toggle buttons to enable either IPv4 or IPv6, or both IPv4 and IPv6 address assignment respectively, for the WAN link.

    If you enable IPv4 address assignment, you can modify the address assignment method to choose either STATIC or DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol). If you enable IPv6 address assignment, you can choose STATIC, DHCP (router advertisement only), or SLAAC (Stateless Address Auto Configuration).

    If you select STATIC as the address assignment method, you can also modify the Static IP Prefix and Gateway IP address of the device.

    Note:

    For SD-WAN branch sites using Internet or MPLS links with LTE access type, you can select only the DHCP method for address assignment.

Public IP Address (Only for enterprise hub sites)

Enterprise hub site

Edit the public IPv4 address configured for the WAN link.

Advanced Settings

Address Family (Tunnel Creation)
