This section describes the procedure for configuring global attributes of virtual private LAN services (VPLSs), which is required before the configuration of VPLS services. The global attributes of VPLS services include the number of virtual user-to-network interfaces (V-UNIs) and the number of virtual local area networks (VLANs).

Prerequisites

You are an NM user with Administrators rights or higher.

Procedure

  1. In the NE Explorer of the desired NE, choose Configuration > Packet Configuration > VPLS Management from the Function Tree.
  2. Set TPID(PW S-TAG) and VUNI Number.



    Table 3-315  VPLS management parameters
    Field Value Range Description
    NE Name For example, NE (9-128) Displays the NE name.
    TPID(PW S-TAG)

    OptiX OSN 500/550: 0x600-0xFFFF

    OptiX OSN 580: 0x88a8, 0x8810

    Default: 0x88a8

    Specifies the TPID of the S-TAG carried in VPLS service packets.

    When VPLS service packets are transmitted from an S-aware V-UNI to a PW, the TPID of the S-TAG carried in the packets is changed to the value of this parameter.

    VUNI Number 1-1024

    Default: 32

    Specifies the maximum number of V-UNIs used by an NE to carry VPLS services.

    • The maximum number of V-UNIs used by an NE to carry VPLS services and the maximum number of VLANs for VPLS services on an NE have a mapping relationship, as shown in Table 3-316.
    • If the specified VUNI Number is between two values in the mapping table, set VLAN Number to the smaller one of the corresponding values. For example, if VUNI Number is set to 50, which is between 32 and 64, set VLAN Number to 2047, which is the smaller one of 4096 and 2047.
    VLAN Number For example, 4096

    Specifies the maximum number of VLANs for VPLS services on an NE. The parameter value is determined by the value of VUNI Number.

    Service Type Tag Type MAC Address Learning Mode

    OptiX OSN 550/500/580

    IEEE 802.1d bridge-based E-LAN services Tag-Transparent -
    IEEE 802.1q bridge-based E-LAN services C-Aware IVL
    IEEE 802.1ad bridge-based E-LAN services S-Aware IVL
    PW-carried E-LAN services C-Aware/S-Aware

    OptiX OSN 550/500: SVL

    OptiX OSN 580: SVL/IVL

    NOTE:
    • Self-Learning MAC Address can be set to Enabled or Disabled. When Self-Learning MAC Address is set to Enabled, the bridge supports MAC address self-learning and the forwarding table items are generated through MAC address self-learning. You can also configure the static MAC address forwarding table items manually. When Self-Learning MAC Address is set to Disabled, the bridge does not support MAC address self-learning, and you can configure the static MAC address forwarding table items only manually.
    • MAC Address Learning Mode can be set to SVL or IVL. SVL indicates shared VLAN learning. All VLANs share a MAC address forwarding table. Each MAC address is unique in the forwarding table. IVL indicates independent VLAN learning. The forwarding tables for different VLANs are independent from each other. The MAC address forwarding tables for different VLANs, however, are permitted to contain the same MAC addresses.
    • Tag Type can be set to C-Aware, S-Aware, or Tag Transparent. C-Aware corresponds to the accessed service packets with one C-VLAN tag. S-Aware corresponds to the accessed service packets with one C-VLAN tag and one S-VLAN tag. Tag Transparent corresponds to the accessed service packets without any VLAN tags.
