Configuring an Ethernet Port

Configuring an Ethernet Port

An Ethernet port can be used to carry Ethernet packets or tunnels, depending on different settings of the port attributes. The attributes of an Ethernet port include the general attributes, Layer 2 attributes, Layer 3 attributes, advanced attributes, and flow control.

Port attributes are configured depending on the application scenarios the port is used, as listed in the following table.

Table 3-13 Application scenarios of an Ethernet port

Figure 3-25 shows the procedure for setting the attributes of an Ethernet port.

Figure 3-25 Procedure for configuring an Ethernet port

Setting the Basic Attributes of Ethernet Ports

Before you set the Layer 2 and Layer 3 attributes of an Ethernet port, you need to set the general attributes of the corresponding Ethernet port. The general attributes of an Ethernet port define the physical-layer information, such as the port mode, encapsulation type, and maximum frame length.

Prerequisites

You must be an NM user with NE administrator authority or higher.

Procedure

  1. In the NE Explorer, select an NE and choose Configuration > Packet Configuration > Interface Management > Ethernet Interface from the Function Tree.
  2. Click the Basic Attributes tab.
  3. Select the board and set the parameters as required. For details about the parameters, see General Attributes.

    NOTE:

    Take the following precautions when setting each parameter.

    The value of Maximum Frame Length (unit: byte) of NNIs must be larger than 960. This is because the maximum length of the DCN packet is 960 bytes. If the value of Maximum Frame Length (unit: byte) is smaller than 960, DCN packet loss may occur in the receive direction.

  4. Click Apply. Then, the Operation Result dialog box is displayed, indicating that the operation is successful.
  5. Click Close.

Setting the Layer 2 Attributes of Ethernet Ports

After the Layer 2 attributes of an Ethernet port are set, the port can be used for connecting to the client-side equipment at the edge of a network or for forwarding Ethernet packets within the network. The Layer 2 attributes of an Ethernet port define the related information about the data link layer.

Prerequisites

You must be an NM user with NE administrator authority or higher.

Procedure

  1. In the NE Explorer, select an NE and choose Configuration > Packet Configuration > Interface Management > Ethernet Interface from the Function Tree.
  2. Click the Layer 2 Attributes tab.
  3. Select the port and set the parameters as required. For details about the parameters, see Layer 2 Attributes.

    NOTE:
    • TAG can be set only when Encapsulation Type is 802.1Q.

  4. Click Apply. Click OK. Then, the Operation Result dialog box is displayed, indicating that the operation is successful.
  5. Click Close.

Setting the Layer 3 Attributes of Ethernet Ports

When an Ethernet port is used to carry a tunnel, you need to set the Layer 3 attributes of the Ethernet port. The Layer 3 attributes of an Ethernet port define the related attributes of the network layer.

Prerequisites

You must be an NM user with NE administrator authority or higher.

Procedure

  1. In the NE Explorer, select an NE and choose Configuration > Packet Configuration > Interface Management > Ethernet Interface from the Function Tree.
  2. Click the Layer 3 Attributes tab.
  3. Select the board and set the parameters as required. For details about the parameters, see Layer 3 Attributes.
  4. Click Apply. Then, the Operation Result dialog box is displayed, indicating that the operation is successful.
  5. Click Close.
  6. Optional: Select the desired port based on the network planning, and set parameters related to MPLS interfaces on the MPLS TE tab in the lower part. If the parameters related to MPLS interfaces are not properly set, MPLS tunnels cannot be created.

    1. On the MPLS TE tab in the lower part, click Create. The MPLS Interface [Create] dialog box is displayed.
    2. In MPLS Interface [Create], select the desired MPLS interface based on the network planning and set Maximum Reservable Bandwidth (kbit/s) and Bc0 bandwidth (kbit/s) for the MPLS interface.
    3. Click OK.

Setting the Advanced Attributes of Ethernet Ports

You can set the routine maintenance parameters by setting the advanced attributes of Ethernet ports.

Prerequisites

You must be an NM user with NE administrator authority or higher.

Procedure

  1. In the NE Explorer, select an NE and choose Configuration > Packet Configuration > Interface Management > Ethernet Interface from the Function Tree.
  2. Click the Advanced Attributes tab.
  3. Select the board and set the parameters as required. For details about the parameters, see Advanced Attributes.
  4. Click Apply. Then, the Operation Result dialog box is displayed, indicating that the operation is successful.
  5. Click Close.

Configuring the Flow Control

When the flow control function is enabled, the Ethernet port sends a PAUSE frame to the opposite end and then the opposite end stops transmitting Ethernet packets, if a congestion occurs on the link. As a result, the congestion is prevented.

Prerequisites

You must be an NM user with NE administrator authority or higher.

Procedure

  1. In the NE Explorer, select an NE and choose Configuration > Packet Configuration > Interface Management > Ethernet Interface from the Function Tree.
  2. Click the Flow Control tab.
  3. Select the board and set the parameters as required. For details about the parameters, see Flow Control.
  4. Click Apply. Then, the Operation Result dialog box is displayed, indicating that the operation is successful.
  5. Click Close.
