3G/LTE Interface

3G/LTE Interface

Context

Although wired WAN access technologies such as access through the optical fiber, xDSL interface, or E1/T1 interface are mature and widely used, wired WAN access service may meet the bottleneck in the following scenarios:

  • In remote branch companies or offshore oil fields, the wired WAN access service may be unavailable or too expensive.
  • The wired WAN access service is restored on the disaster site only after wires are connected quickly and in a timely manner.
  • The wired WAN cannot cover all gas stations and ATMs that are widely distributed.
  • Enterprise staff require mobile office applications.

In these scenarios, wireless WAN access service is required. A 3G/LTE cellular interface is a physical interface supporting 3G/LTE technology. It provides users with an enterprise-class wireless WAN access services.

Procedure

  1. Choose WAN Access > 3G/LTE Interface to display the 3G/LTE Interface page, as shown in Figure 12-26.

    Figure 12-26  3G/LTE Interface Page

  2. Select the 3G/LTE interface to be configured, as shown in Table 12-33. After you finish the configuration, click Apply.

    Table 12-33  Selecting a 3G/LTE interface
    Parameter Description
    Enable 3G/LTE Only after the 3G/LTE function is enabled, 3G/LTE dialup can be triggered.
    Interface name Type and number of an interface.
    NOTE:
    The interface can be configured only when a 3G/LTE Interface and the corresponding SIM card are inserted into the device.

    When you need to manually restart the 3G/LTE Interface, click Restart Wireless Module.

    Interface description Description of an interface.

    By default, the interface description is "HUAWEI, AR Series, interface-type interface-number Interface."

    Network status

    Signal strength, carrier, and network mode of the 3G/LTE wireless WAN card.

    NOTE:

    The information is displayed only when a 3G/LTE Interface and the corresponding SIM card are inserted into the device.

    SIM card status

    Status of an SIM card.

  3. Click Data Connection Setting to set data connection parameters.
    1. (Optional) Configure a test instance.

      This step is mandatory if you want to test the 3G/LTE link status using an NQA test instance.

      1. Click Create in the NQA Instance area to create an NQA test instance, as shown in Figure 12-27.
      2. Set the parameters described in Table 12-34.
      3. Click OK.

      Figure 12-27  Create NQA Instance Page

      Table 12-34  Parameters for creating a test instance
      Parameter Description
      NQA Instance name Name of an NQA test instance.
      Detection Destination IP

      Destination address of the NQA test instance.

      NOTE:

      The route from the device to the destination address of the NQA test instance must be reachable.

      Detection frequency (seconds)

      Interval for automatically performing the NQA test, in seconds.

      Probe count

      Number of probes to be sent each time for the NQA test instance.

      NOTE:

      To modify an NQA test instance, find it in the Operation column of NQA Instance, click , and set the parameters described in Table 12-34.

    2. Configure an APN profile.

      NOTE:

      APN profiles only need to be configured for the 3G/LTE Interfaces in WCDMA and LTE networks. Skip this step if you use the 3G interface in CDMA2000 networks.

      You can create an APN profile and configure an APN in the profile so that you can access external PDN networks using the configured APN.

      1. Click Create in the APN Profile area to create an APN profile, as shown in Figure 12-28.
      2. Set the parameters described in Table 12-35.
      3. Click OK.

      Figure 12-28  Create APN Profile Page

      Table 12-35  Parameters for creating an APN profile
      Parameter Description
      Profile Name Name of the APN profile.
      APN

      APN specified.

      NOTE:
      APNs are provided by the carrier.
      Username

      User name for accessing an external PDN network, which is provided by the carrier.

      Password

      User password for accessing an external PDN network, which is provided by the carrier.

      SIM ID

      Specifies the ID of a SIM card.

      Authentication Mode
      User authentication mode for accessing an external PDN network, which is provided by the carrier.
      • AUTO: PAP or CHAP authentication pap: PAP authentication
      • PAP: PAP authentication
      • CHAP: CHAP authentication

      NOTE:

      To modify an APN profile, find it in the Operation column of APN Profile, click , and set the parameters described in Table 12-35.

    3. Set the network connection parameters described in Table 12-36.

      Table 12-36  Network connection parameters
      Parameter Description
      Dial string Dialup string that is provided by the carrier.
      • The default dialup string is *99# when the 3G/LTE Interface supports WCDMA or LTE standard.
      • The default dialup string is #777 when the 3G/LTE Interface supports CDMA2000 standard.
      Online mode Dialup mode.
      • When this parameter is set to Always online, the DCC immediately attempts to dial the remote end after a router starts. The dialing process is not triggered by data packets. If a connection cannot be established with the remote end, the router retries at an interval.

        The value Always online applies to scenarios where traffic and online duration are not charged.

      • When this parameter is set to Disconnected after idle timeout (s), a link is established only when data is transmitted. When no traffic exists on the link within a specified period, the router removes the link to save traffic.

        The value Disconnected after idle timeout (s) applies to scenarios where traffic and online duration are charged.

        When setting this parameter to Disconnected after idle timeout (s), specify the link idle timeout period. The default value is 120.

      APN Configuration

      Bind the APN profile to a 3G/LTE interface.

      • The APN profile priority must be specified when multiple SIM cards can be inserted into a 3G/LTE data card.
      • The test instance must be specified if you want to test the 3G/LTE link status using an NQA test instance.
      NOTE:

      To bind multiple APN profiles to a 3G/LTE interface, click .

      To unbind an APN profile from a 3G/LTE interface, click .

      Enable NAT NAT must be enabled when a PC on a private network connects to the Internet.
      MTU (bytes) MTU of an interface.

      If the MTU is set too small and the size of packets is oversized, packets will be divided into a great number of fragments, and be discarded by QoS queues. If the MTU is set too large, packets are transmitted at a low speed, and even some packets are lost.

      After changing the MTU of the interface, restart the interface to make the configuration take effect.

      The default value of MTU is 1500.

      TCP-MSS (bytes) MSS of TCP packets on the interface.

      The MSS refers to the maximum length of a TCP packet segment sent from the peer device to the local device. During TCP connection negotiation, devices at both ends record the MSS of each other. When sending TCP packets, devices at both ends limit the size of TCP packets within the MSS.

      The default value of TCP-MSS is 1200.

      VPN instance VPN instance bound to the interface.
