Configure ALCATEL LUCENT 7450 ESS

Learn How to Configure an ALCATEL LUCENT 7450 ESS



1) Port Config

First, you need to get into the command line, you can do telnet from the remote site or get your console cable to the device. Let’s start, then.

Assuming we have already get into one.

ALU-7450ESS#

to name it we could use “config system name” command like this one :

ALU-7450ESS#config system name ME-TEST
ME-TEST#

Then we have to config ports on it.

ME-TEST#config port 1/1/1
ME-TEST>config>port#description “LINK TO SW TEST” –> you can change this as you like, the port description
ME-TEST>config>port#ethernet —> depending on your port type, in this case, ethernet
ME-TEST>config>port>ethernet# mode access –> you could change this into access or network
ME-TEST>config>port>ethernet# encap-type dot1q –> user dot1q to allow VLAN config on this port
ME-TEST>config>port>ethernet# mtu 9212
ME-TEST>config>port>ethernet# exit
ME-TEST>config>port# no shutdown –> like routers, this command is used to activate the port.

Then the port should be looked like this :

ME-TEST# show port 1/1/1
=================================================
Ethernet Interface
=================================================
Description        : LINK TO SW TEST
Interface          : 1/1/1                      Oper Speed       : 1 Gbps
Link-level         : Ethernet                   Config Speed     : 1 Gbps
Admin State        : up                         Oper Duplex      : full
Oper State         : up                         Config Duplex    : full
Physical Link      : Yes                        MTU              : 9212
IfIndex            : 35684352                   Hold time up     : 0 seconds
Last State Change  : 06/05/2011 09:36:47        Hold time down   : 0 seconds
Last Cleared Time  : N/A

Configured Mode    : access                    Encap Type       : 802.1q
Dot1Q Ethertype    : 0×8100                     QinQ Ethertype   : 0×8100

Notice that things that we configured before are shown in bold in the above. In VC-Switching, port is used for the sap along with the VLAN that will be used.

2) SDP Config
Assuming you already have a metro  MPLS backbone using ALU 7450 ESS too,

We’re going to learn how to configure a new SDP connection on a new METRO.
Still using the same ME-TEST like the post before,

ME-TEST#configure service sdp 2 mpls create  –> 2 is the sdp-ip, and use mpls postfix to create it mpls-wise (default GRE), use create if the sdp-id isn’t already existed
ME-TEST>config>service>sdp# description “to the ME-TEST2″ –> the description, mine, it’s used to connect it to the ME-TEST2
ME-TEST>config>service>sdp# far-end 10.1.1.2 –> ME-TEST2 IP Address
ME-TEST>config>service>sdp# ldp –> activate the LDP
ME-TEST>config>service>sdp#keep-alive
ME-TEST>config>service>sdp>keep-alive# shutdown
ME-TEST>config>service>sdp>keep-alive# exit
ME-TEST>config>service>sdp#no shutdown –> activate the SDP

Then it should be looked like this,

ME-TEST# show service sdp 2

===============================================================================
Service Destination Point (Sdp Id : 2)
===============================================================================
SdpId    Adm MTU   Opr MTU   IP address       Adm    Opr         Deliver      Signal
——————————————————————————-
2        0         9190      10.1.1.2                        Up     Down          LDP      TLDP
===============================================================================

Notice that the oper state is still down, you have to create the SDP on the ME-TEST2 too to make it UP.

ME-TEST2#config service sdp 1 mpls create
ME-TEST2>config>service>sdp# description “to the ME-TEST” –> the description, like before
ME-TEST2>config>service>sdp# far-end 10.1.1.1 –> ME-TEST IP Address
ME-TEST2>config>service>sdp# ldp
ME-TEST2>config>service>sdp# keep-alive
ME-TEST2>config>service>sdp>keep-alive# shutdown
ME-TEST2>config>service>sdp>keep-alive# exit
ME-TEST2>config>service>sdp# no shutdown

By now you should have this :

ME-TEST2# show service sdp 1
===============================================================================
Service Destination Point (Sdp Id : 1)
===============================================================================
SdpId    Adm MTU   Opr MTU   IP address       Adm    Opr         Deliver      Signal
——————————————————————————-
1        0         9190      10.1.1.1                         Up     Up          LDP      TLDP
===============================================================================

And this,

ME-TEST# show service sdp 2

===============================================================================
Service Destination Point (Sdp Id : 2)
===============================================================================
SdpId    Adm MTU   Opr MTU   IP address       Adm    Opr         Deliver      Signal
——————————————————————————-
2        0         9190      10.1.1.2                        Up     Up          LDP      TLDP
===============================================================================

Then we’re ready to make a new service with sap and sdp.
SDP is used for vc-switching between metro, using vc-tag along with it.


3) Service Epipe Config

Okay, assuming we have ports, and a sdp that have been configured from the test before,

We’re going to create a service for our first customer.
ME-TEST# configure service customer 12345 create –> in creating new customer, “create” must be used, and 12345 is the customer-id
ME-TEST>config>service>customer# description “Gigatech Corporate” –> the customer name

Now let’s set ME-TEST2, copy the config you have on ME-TEST

ME-TEST2# configure service customer 12345 create
ME-TEST2>config>service>cust# description “Gigatech Corporate”

We’re having our first customer on the new metro,
Now let’s set the service for the customer.

ME-TEST# configure service epipe 190000001 customer 12345 create –> create service 190000001 for customer-id 12345, on my case, the customer I have set above
ME-TEST>config>service>epipe# description “GIGATECH CORP ME-TEST to ME-TEST2 VLAN 2500″ –> the description
ME-TEST>config>service>epipe# service-mtu 1632 –> setting the MTU for the service
ME-TEST>config>service>epipe# sap 1/1/1:2500 create –> setting the port and allows it VLAN
ME-TEST>config>service>epipe>sap# no shutdown –> activate the sap on the service
ME-TEST>config>service>epipe>sap# exit
ME-TEST>config>service>epipe# spoke-sdp 2:190000001 –> 2 is the sdp-id and 190000001 is the vc-id
ME-TEST>config>service>epipe>spoke-sdp# no shutdown –> activate the sdp
ME-TEST>config>service>epipe>spoke-sdp# exit

ME-TEST>config>service>epipe# no shutdown –> activate the service

Now, we’re having a new service, it should be looked like this.

ME-TEST# show service id 190000001 base

==================================================
Service Basic Information
==================================================
Service Id        : 190000001           Vpn Id            : 0

sdp:2:190000001 S(10.1.1.2)       n/a          0       9190    Up   Down

Notice that the sdp and the service oper state is still down, we have to configure the metro on the other side as well to get it UP.

ME-TEST2# configure service epipe 190000001 customer 12345 create
ME-TEST2>config>service>epipe# description “GIGATECH CORP ME-TEST to ME-TEST2 VLAN 2500″
ME-TEST2>config>service>epipe# service-mtu 1632
ME-TEST2>config>service>epipe# sap 1/1/1:2500 create
ME-TEST2>config>service>epipe>sap# no shutdown
ME-TEST2>config>service>epipe>sap# exit
ME-TEST2>config>service>epipe#spoke-sdp 1:190000001 –> sdp-id 1 is link to the ME-TEST from ME-TEST2, and bind it with the vc-id
ME-TEST2>config>service>epipe>spoke-sdp#  no shutdown
ME-TEST2>config>service>epipe>spoke-sdp# exit
ME-TEST2>config>service>epipe# no shutdown –> activate the service

Okay, now we’re having a service that is connecting the metro link, like below

ME-TEST2# show service id 190000001 base
