Example: Data Services

This topic shows an example process for provisioning data services on the GPON ONT Ethernet port.

Best Practice: To change parameters of an existing service, first remove the service and then re-add the service with new parameters, especially if using 3rd party provisioning equipment.

See Overview: GPON L2 Data Services for the sequence of linked procedures for configuring the E7 and GPON ONTs data services.

Step 1: Configure network uplinks

  • Configure Ethernet Interfaces
  • Configure Ethernet Ports
  • Create Service VLANs
  • Make Interfaces VLAN Members

See procedures in Configuring the Network Uplink(s) for GPON Service.

See "Configuring Transport and Aggregation Support" in the Calix E7 User Guide for instructions on configuring transport rings and aggregation links.

Step 2: Create system profiles

Create Rules to Classify Traffic:

a) Create a Match List

Typically only untagged traffic is present on the ONT Ethernet port, so you can use the system default match list "all-untagged," defined as shown, to match all untagged traffic.

If a residential gateway (RG) is installed in a subscribers premises, the RG classifies traffic into VLANs. Then for each service type, create a match list that contains a tagged rule, matching the service VLAN.

TaggedRule

b) Create a Service Tag Action

Applies the specified service-tag action to the matched traffic.

VLAN-per-service:

  • Single tags all untagged traffic on the ONT Ethernet port.
  • or
  • Adds a tag to all traffic arriving on the ONT port with a tag value of 12.

    Specify the added VLAN tag in the Service Tag Action (Outer Tag = 300) so you can apply the same VLAN tagging for all data service provisioning that uses the tag action object.

    When you indicate Specify P-Bit for the Outer P-Bit Source, enter the P-bit value that marks the traffic for the best effort forwarding class.

    Note: Upstream GPON traffic on a service VLAN must have the same P-bit value as is set for downstream.

  • E7 > Profiles > Service > Tagging > Tag Actions > Profiles > Create

    See Creating Service-Tag Actions.

E7_SvcTagAct2

DataTagged

VLAN-per-subscriber:

  • Double tags all untagged traffic arriving on the ONT port.
  • or
  • Double tags all traffic arriving on the ONT port with a tag value of 12.

    Specify the added VLAN outer tag in the Service Tag Action (Outer Tag= 300) and indicate the VLAN inner tag is specified when adding the service to a port (Inner Tag = Specified in Service). This allows you to apply the same outer tag for the type of traffic and also apply a unique inner tag for each subscriber.

    When you indicate Specify P-Bit for the Outer P-Bit Source, enter the P-bit value that marks the traffic for the best effort forwarding class.

    Note: Upstream GPON traffic on a service VLAN must have the same P-bit value as is set for downstream traffic.

Creating a PON Upstream Class of Service Profile.

PON upstream Class of Service (CoS) profiles allow you to expand on the 4 system-default instances of CoS to 8 priorities of scheduled service per ONT.

  • 1.) Create a PON US CoS profile.
  • 2.)Map the PON US CoS profile to an instance (user1-4) at the ONT.
  • 3.) Select the PON CoS instance when adding a service to an ONT port.
  • E7 > Profiles > CoS > PON Upstream > Create

    See Creating a PON Upstream Class of Service Profile.

Data BE

(not supported for the P-series GX ONTs)

Configure the Ethernet Bandwidth Profile.

An Ethernet bandwidth profile specifies the upstream and downstream bandwidth rates to apply to individual Ethernet services on ONT Ethernet ports. Typically, a single bandwidth profile is applied to many subscriber ports.

BW Profile BE

Create an Ethernet Security Profile.

An Ethernet security profile is applied to ONT Ethernet ports to enable and/or specify security attributes of the ONT Ethernet port, including Layer 2 Control Protocol (L2CP) handling on GPON ONT Ethernet interfaces and VLANs on the interface.

The E7 has a default Ethernet Security profile that you can apply to ONT Ethernet ports or you can create a new profile with modified attributes.

  • DHCP Lease Limit: 10
  • Upstream Broadcast/Multicast Limit: 24
  • L2CP Filter: user-defined
  • Flood Destination Lookup Fail: selected
  • DOC Attack Detection: selected
  • E7 > Profiles > Security > Ethernet > Profiles > Create

    The E7 has two system default L2CP filters that either discard (all-discard) or pass (all-tunnel) all L2CP protocol frames for all ranges. You can also create filters that specify which L2CP ranges to discard or tunnel L2CP protocol frames.

  • E7 > Profiles > Security > L2CP > Filters > Create

    See Creating an Ethernet Security Profile.

Step 3: Configure a PON

Enable the GPON Port.

Split Horizon should ONLY be disabled when setting up TLAN service between multiple GPON ports on the same E7 card.

  • Admin State: enabled
  • Split Horizon: selected
  • Dynamic Bandwidth Allocation (DBA): selected
  • Shelf# > Card# (GPON) > GPON #
  • Click Apply from the menu.

Create an ONT.

Typically, the provisioning of an ONT is done in advance of installation and discovery of the physical ONT. ONTs are created as follows:

Manually where the ONT is pre-provisioned by entering the ONT serial number into the Create ONT dialogue box.

Automatically where the ONT is discovered on the network after successfully completing the Remote ONT Activation Process.

Selecting System Assigned ID allows the automatic assignment for the ONT ID.

Add PON US CoS Profile to ONT.

Select a previously-created PON Upstream CoS profile and map it to a either a Calix GE or T-series ONT.

BE

Configure an ONT Ethernet Port.

Configure an ONT Ethernet port for service.

  • Enable the port and enter subscriber information.
  • Assign port to L2 interface (none), if necessary for HGW ONT.
  • Specify the security profile.
  • To run OAM tests, the Link OAM Events and Accept Link OAM Loopback must be set to Y (Yes).
  • Click Apply on the menu.
  • ONTs > Provisioned ONTs > Ports > GE

Step 4: Configure subscriber services

Add the Data Service to an Ethernet Port.

VLAN-per-service:

References a Service Tag Action that added a single tag and specified the Outer Tag. This allows you to apply the same VLAN tag for all subscribers of data service (N:1).

  • ONTs > Provisioned ONTS > Services > Table.
  • From the top of the Work Area, use the ONT drop-down list ONT_select to select the ONT on which to add the service.
  • Create > Data Service.

    See Creating an L2 Data Service.

    HSI_1_2

VLAN-per-subscriber:

References a Service Tag Action that added two tags, specified the Outer Tag, and indicated the VLAN inner tag is specified when the service is added to a port.

Specify a unique VLAN inner tag to apply a different VLAN tag for each subscriber (1:1).

  • ONTs > Provisioned ONTS > Services > Table.
  • From the top of the Work Area, use the ONT drop-down list ONT_select to select the ONT on which to add the service.
  • Create > Data Service.
