  6. Click OK. The operation result is displayed.

Configuring Port VLANs in Batches

  1. Choose Resource > Network > Business > VLAN Management from the main menu.

  2. Choose Resource Management > VLAN Device from the navigation tree on the left. The list of devices supporting VLAN and their VLAN information are displayed.

  3. Select one or more devices and click Configure Port VLAN.

  4. Set port VLAN parameters: Select a port type from the Type drop-down list box. The other parameters vary depending on the port type.
  5. Click Select Port. On the page that is displayed, specify the parameters to filter out the desired ports and click OK.
    NOTE:
    • To deselect all the ports that have been selected, click Clear All.
    • To deselect a port, clear the check box of this port. After that, the VLAN configuration of this port will not be delivered to the device.
    • To add more ports, click Select Interface.
  6. Click Yes. The progress bar for batch configuration is displayed in the lower part of the page, and the operating status is displayed in the Operation Result column of the device list.

    You can also access the resource management page of a device by accessing the following path and clicking the corresponding NE name: Choose Resource > Network > Equipment > Network Device from the main menu.

  4. Choose Device VLAN > Port VLAN.

  5. Select one or more devices and click Modify.

  6. Select a port type. Other VLAN parameters vary depending on the port type.
  7. Click Confirm.

Creating VLANIF Interfaces

A VLANIF interface is a logical layer-3 interface that enables the communication among VLANs.

  1. Choose Resource > Network > Business > VLAN Management from the main menu.

  2. Choose Resource Management > VLAN Device from the navigation tree on the left. The list of devices supporting VLAN and their VLAN information are displayed.
  3. Click next to a target device and access the resource management page of the device.

    NOTE:

    You can also access the resource management page of a device by accessing the following path and clicking the corresponding NE name: Choose Resource > Network > Equipment > Network Device from the main menu.

  4. Choose Device VLAN > VLANIF Interface. VLANIF information about the device is displayed.

  5. Click Create.

  6. Set VLAN ID, Interface IP address, and Interface IP subnet mask.
  7. Click Confirm.

Configuring the Voice VLAN

Voice data requires a higher priority than non-voice data during transmission. To mitigate delay and packet loss during transmission and ensure high-quality voice services, you can configure the voice VLAN to prioritize the transmission of voice data.

  1. Choose Resource > Network > Business > VLAN Management from the main menu.

  2. Choose Resource Management > VLAN Device from the navigation tree on the left. The list of devices supporting VLAN and their VLAN information are displayed.
  3. Click next to a target device and access the resource management page of the device.

    NOTE:

    You can also access the resource management page of a device by accessing the following path and clicking the corresponding NE name: Choose Resource > Network > Equipment > Network Device from the main menu.

  4. Choose Device VLAN > Voice VLAN from the navigation tree on the left. The voice VLAN information configured for this VLAN is displayed.

  5. Add an OUI address: Click Create. On the page that is displayed, set MAC Address, MAC Mask, and Description.

    NOTE:

    The value of MAC Address cannot be an all-0 address, multicast address, or broadcast address. An all-F value for MAC Address indicates a broadcast address. The method for determining a multicast address is as follows: Perform a logical And operation on the first two bits of MAC Address and 0x01. If the value obtained is 1, MAC Address is a multicast address.

  6. Add a port:
    1. Click Create. On the page that is displayed.

      NOTE:
      • Only one VLAN for a port can be set as the voice VLAN at a time.
      • The automatic mode (Work Mode being Auto) applies to the network for both voice and data access (that is, the port transmits voice data and non-voice data at the same time). The manual mode (Work Mode being Manual) applies to the network only for voice access (that is, the port transmits only voice data).
      • In automatic mode, a device with voice VLAN enabled learns the source MAC address carried in the voice packets sent by an audio device, and automatically adds the port that connects the audio device to the voice VLAN. In manual node, after voice VLAN is enabled, you must manually add the port that connects the audio device to the voice VLAN. For a port of the Access type, only manual mode is available.
      • Network devices send voice VLAN information to IP phones using LLDP packets. If an IP phone does not support LLDP but uses a proprietary protocol, set LAGACY Disabled to Enabled to support this proprietary protocol.
      • The security mode (Security Mode being Security) prevents the voice VLAN from being attacked by malicious data, but checking for malicious data occupies certain system resources.
      • For devices supporting advanced settings, the Work Mode parameter must be set to Manual and Security Mode must be set to Common.
    2. Set advanced parameters: Click Advanced. Set Untagged VLAN Allowed and Priority.
    NOTE:
    • Huawei devices support advanced settings only when the platform version is VRPV5R13 or later.
    • Untagged VLAN Allowed specifies whether to add a voice VLAN ID to untagged packets.
    • In automatic mode, a device with voice VLAN enabled learns the source MAC address carried in the voice packets sent by an audio device, and automatically adds the port that connects the audio device to the voice VLAN. In manual node, after voice VLAN is enabled, you must manually add the port that connects the audio device to the voice VLAN. For a port of the Access type, only manual mode is available.
  7. Click OK.

Managing VLANs in the Topology

VLANs on the entire network and involved devices and links are uniformly displayed in a topology view. You can view and modify network-wide VLANs in the topology view.

  1. Navigation path:
    1. Choose Resource > Network > Business > VLAN Management from the main menu.

    2. Choose VLAN Topology from the navigation tree on the left.
    3. On the VLAN topology page, click a VLAN in the VLAN list on the right.

  2. VLAN attribute display:
    • Hover the cursor over a device icon. The device name and device VLAN information are displayed.
    • Hover the cursor over a link. The NE name, port name, link type, PVID, and allowed VLAN for the NE at each end of the link are displayed.
  3. VLAN path display:
    • In the VLAN topology, a device icon in green indicates that the device is online and is a member device under the selected VLAN. If the device icon is gray, the device is a member device under the selected VLAN but is offline. If the device icon is yellow, the device is not a member device under the selected VLAN and you cannot know whether it is online or not.
    • A green link indicates a functional link and packets carrying the ID of the selected VLAN can be transmitted over this link. A gray link indicates that packets carrying the ID of the selected VLAN can be transmitted over this link but this link is unavailable. If the link is yellow, packets carrying the ID of the selected VLAN cannot be transmitted over this link and you cannot know whether this link is functional.
    • Blocking points on a loop for a certain VLAN are displayed according to the MSTP-based calculation result.
    • A subnet icon in green indicates that all member devices under the selected VLAN within this subnet are online and the links are functional. If the icon is gray, some or all of the member devices under the selected VLAN within this subnet are offline. If the icon is yellow, no device in this subnet belongs to the selected VLAN.
  4. VLAN topology operations:
  • Click a VLAN in the VLAN list on the right. The topology automatically filters out the devices and subnets belonging to this VLAN. Device icons being green and links green together indicate a functional network.
  • Right-click a device icon in the VLAN topology and choose Add to VLAN or Delete from VLAN from the shortcut menu to add the device to or delete the device from the VLAN.
  • Right-click a device icon in the VLAN topology and choose VLAN Management from the shortcut menu. The resource management page for the device is displayed. On this page, you can modify VLAN resources for this device.
  • Right-click a device icon in the VLAN topology and choose Synchronize Device VLAN from the shortcut menu. This operation synchronizes VLAN resources on a device and eSight.
