Example: Video Services

This topic shows an example process for provisioning video services on the E7 GPON and 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 IP video Services for the sequence of linked procedures for configuring the E7 and GPON ONTs video services.

Step 1: Configure network uplinks

  • Configure Ethernet Interfaces
  • Configure Ethernet Ports
  • Create Service VLANs
  • If the VLAN IGMP Mode is set to proxy, an IGMP profile must be referenced from the VLAN. Use the system-default IGMP profile, or create a new IGMP profile for the VLAN to reference that sets configuration attributes of the IGMP snoop used to establish membership in a multicast video services group.
  • Note: All nodes in an ERPS ring must have the same IGMP Snooping provisioning on the video VLAN for traffic to flow--either all with snooping (snoop-suppress, proxy) or all without snooping (flood).
  • 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

Create a list with rules that match the traffic from set-top boxes (STB). This allows both video and internet services on the same port. To match the traffic from all STBs of a particular manufacturer, indicate the STB OUI in the first half of the Source MAC and enter zeros for the last half of the source MAC.

Alternatively, the ONTs support matching the traffic from a specific host by indicating the MAC address in the Source MAC attribute, and then providing a mask for the address by indicating ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff in the Source Mac Mask attribute.

Source MAC mask (untagged match rules only).

  • source MAC mask (x:x:x:x:x:x)
  • none (no MAC mask)
  • oui (mask OUI fields (FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF)

    Note: The T-Series ONTs do not support configuring a match rule with an OUI filter.

    Ethernet type to match (untagged match rules only).

  • any = default
  • pppoe = 0x8863 or 0x8864 (for HSI)
  • arp = 0x0806 (for video)
  • ipv4 = 0x0800 (for video)
  • ipv6 = 0x86DD (for video)

MatchListOUI

Example entries that match all STB source MAC addresses of a particular manufacturer:

ADB set-top boxes: 00:03:91:00:00:00
Amino set-top boxes: 00:02:02:00:00:00

MatchList24

If a residential gateway (RG) is installed in the subscriber's 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.

E7_Video_Mtch2

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 that matches all STB OUIs of a particular manufacturer.
  • or
  • Adds a tag to all traffic arriving on the ONT port with a tag value of 24.

    Specify the added VLAN tag in the Service Tag Action (Outer Tag = 250) 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 P-Bit Source, enter the P-bit value that marks the traffic for the assured forwarding class. See the PON CoS step above.

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

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

    See Creating Service-Tag Actions.

E7_Video_Act

VLAN-per-subscriber:

  • Double tags all untagged traffic arriving on the ONT port that matches all STB OUIs of a particular manufacturer.
  • or
  • Double tags all traffic arriving on the ONT port with a tag value of 24.

    Specify the added VLAN outer tag in the Service Tag Action (Outer Tag= 250) 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 P-Bit Source, enter the P-bit value that marks the traffic for the assured forwarding class. See the PON CoS step above.

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

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

    See Creating Service-Tag Actions.

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.

E7_Video_BW

Creating Multicast Ranges.

A multicast map can optionally reference a multicast range that defines a single range of multicast addresses that provides a filter against unwanted IGMP traffic. The IGMP traffic that falls outside of the multicast ranges is discarded at the ONT. You can define a maximum of eight multicast ranges to create a set of incontiguous address ranges.

The multicast ranges apply to the E7 system globally and are automatically assigned to any ONT that has a video service provisioned.

Video Map

E7_Video_Ranges

Configure the Ethernet Multicast Profile.

An Ethernet multicast profile enables provisioning of the IPTV service limits that can be applied to subscriber services.

Enter a Query Interval value that matches the query interval of the upstream router that is acting as the IGMP querier.

The Convert to Unicast parameter should ONLY be enabled if switches are deployed on the subscriber side that cannot manage heavy multicast traffic. (Only Calix GX ONTs support this feature.)

E7_Video_Mcast_Profile

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.

    See Configuring an E7 GPON Port.

E7_Vc_GPON_port

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.

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.

Step 4: Configure subscriber services

Add the Video 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. See Creating Video Service on an ONT Ethernet Port.

  • 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 > Video Service.

    See Creating an L2 Video Service.

    E7_Video_Svc1

    E7_VideoSvcN_1tagged

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 > Video Service.
