Hierarchy Level


A GPRS tunneling protocol (GTP) handover group is a set of SGSNs or serving gateway (SGW) with a common address-book library. You can configure a GTP profile and associate an GTP handover group to the GTP profile. When a GTP handover group name is referenced by a GTP profile, the device checks to see if the current SGSN/SGW address and the proposed SGSN/SGW address are both contained within the same GTP handover group. If both SGSN/SGW addresses are contained within the same GTP handover group, then the handover is allowed. If both the current and proposed SGSN/SGW addresses are not within the same GTP handover group, then the profile for the default handover group is used.

From Junos OS Release 20.4R1 onwards, the [edit security gprs gtp profile profile-name] hierarchy level is replaced by [edit security gtp profile profile-name].
