Configuring a PWE3 Service from the Service Tab

The Calix E7 supports a subscriber services activation page where you can provision any possible service for any ONT configured in the E7 system.

This topic shows you how to provision a T1 PWE3 service for a GPON ONT. See the Calix T1 Pseudowire Applications for details.

Optionally, you can configure a T1 PWE3 service from the Ports tab to access detailed provisioning at a port level and its services.

The E7 and Calix 760GX ONTs provide T1/E1 services over GPON and point-to-point Ethernet networks using pseudowire emulation technology. T1/E1 PWE3 (Pseudo-wire) service provisioning specifies the Transport Mode, determining how the local and remote ends of the circuit are defined.

  • With UDP for the pseudowire multiplexing layer, the Calix 760GX ONT uses Structure-Agnostic Time Division Multilexing (TDM) over Packet (SAToP), RFC 4553, for encapsulation and transport of T1/E1 services over the IP/Ethernet packet switched network. The Remote UDP port must be specified (avoiding 2142), yet the UDP port of the local and remote PWE3 circuits can be set independently, in support for UDP de-multiplexing, as defined in RFC 5086.

    Note: Calix recommends using the RFC 5086 method for de-multiplexing. This method requires that the remote (destination) UDP port always be specified, avoiding port 2142. See Overview: Configuring GPON T1/E1 Services for more information de-multiplexing PWE3 services.

  • With MEF (layer-2 transport) for Ethernet-only encapsulation, the T1/E1 circuit uses a structure defined by the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF). The local and remote ends of the circuit are given ECID values. The remote end of the T1/E1 pseudowire can be addressed using either a MAC address or an IP address. Calix recommends using an IP address to allow the two end points to learn each other's MAC addresses dynamically based on ARP exchanges. In this manner, a failed ONT can be replaced, given the same IP address for the T1/E1 service, and the service will restore automatically.

Information you need

You must have the following information on hand to configure ONT TDM Gateway voice service:

  • T1/E1 PWE3 profile to use on the ONT T1 port.
  • UDP port Number to use for the T1/E1 PWE3 service.
  • Destination IP address to use for the remote end of the pseudowire.

Parameters

You can provision the following parameters for T1/E1 PWE3 services accessed from the Services page:

Parameter

Description

Valid Options

Subscriber Port

Subscriber Port*

System address of the ONT port where the subscriber services will be provisioned.

Any ONT POTS port

Subscriber ID

Subscriber ID information, such as phone number, or account number.

If you leave this box empty, the E7 copies the Subscriber ID entry from the ONT provisioning record to this field.

String up to 32 characters
(blank) (default)

Description

Optional description field for the port, subscriber address, name, or service.

If you leave this box empty, the E7 copies the Description entry from the ONT provisioning record to this field.

String up to 47 characters
(blank) (default)

Create PWE3 Service

PWE3 Profile*

Name of the T1/E1 PWE3 profile to use for the service.

Any established PWE3 profile

Transport Mode

Choose Layer-3 (IP) or Layer-2 (MEF) transport mode.

  • UDP/IP is transported with Ethernet, UDP, and IP headers. MEF is transported with Ethernet headers. The de-multiplexing (transport) method must be consistent across all PWE3 services provisioned on an ONT. Mixing de-multiplexing modes on the same ONT is NOT supported.

    Note: Calix recommends using the RFC 5086 (udp-ip) method for de-multiplexing. This method requires that the remote (destination) UDP port always be specified, avoiding port 2142.

  • MEF (layer-2 transport) is for Ethernet-only encapsulation of the T1 circuit using a structure defined by the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF). The local and remote ends of the circuit are given ECID values. The remote end of the T1 pseudowire can be addressed using either a MAC address or an IP address. Calix recommends using an IP address to allow the two end points to learn each other's MAC addresses dynamically based on ARP exchanges.

udp-ip
mef

Local UDP Port*
(UDP-IP mode only)

Local UDP port number to use, which must be the same on both ends of pseudowire. The combination of the IP address and UDP port number uniquely identifies the pseudowire, being associated with the physical T1 port and directs the pseudowire payload to the proper T1 (TDM) port.

1024-65534

Remote UDP Port
(UDP-IP mode only)

UDP port at the remote end of the pseudo-wire. This is a TCP or UDP port number.

Unspecified
Enter value
1024-65534

Local ECID
(MEF mode only)

Emulated circuit ID.

1-1048575

Remote ECID
(MEF mode only)

Remote emulated circuit ID.

1-1048575

Remote MAC
(MEF mode only)

Available for MEF transport mode only: MAC address of the remote end of the pseudowire. This is a MAC address.

Note: Either the remote MAC or the remote IP address is required when in MEF transport mode.

six hexadecimal digits in the range 0-FF, optionally separated by colons.

Remote IP*

The IP address of the remote end of the pseudowire. The combination of the IP address and UDP port number uniquely identifies the pseudowire, being associated with the physical T1 port and directs the pseudowire payload to the proper T1 (TDM) port.

"dotted quad" format
(ex: 192.168.1.100) Alternately, "none" can be used to reset the value to "0.0.0.0."

Update IP Host

Host Protocol

Host protocol for the SIP client. "Static" is the only supported host protocol for PWE3 IP Hosts, therefore, you must also enter a static IP address, mask, and gateway addresses.

static
dhcp

Static IP
(static protocol only)

IP address statically assigned to the ONT if the host protocol is static. This attribute is ignored, yet preserved, if the host protocol is DHCP.

4-byte IP address

Static IP Mask
(static protocol only)

IP network mask assigned to the ONT if the host protocol is static. This attribute is ignored, yet preserved, if the host protocol is DHCP.

4-byte IP address

Static IP Gateway
(static protocol only)

Static IP gateway 4-byte address for the ONT to use in routing its traffic to the SIP server, if the host protocol is static. This attribute is ignored, yet preserved, if the host protocol is DHCP.

4-byte IP address

Svc Tag Action

Name of the previously created "add tag" tag action in order to add a VLAN tag to all pseudowire traffic. Each pseudowire must have its own VLAN ID within the network. Both endpoints of the pseudowire will share the same VLAN ID. Use a separate tag action for each pseudowire circuit.

index-name of tag action

S-VLAN (Outer Tag)

Indicates the customer-specific tag when the Output Outer Tag attribute of the referenced tag action states "Specified in Service."

2-4093
(Except for 1002-1005 which are reserved for E7 operation.)

C-VLAN (Inner Tag)

Indicates the customer-specific tag when the Output Inner Tag attribute of the referenced tag action states "Specified in Service."

2-4093
(Except for 1002-1005 which are reserved for E7 operation.)
