The configuration of an SBC (Session Border Controller) starts with the configuration of the cluster properties and the cluster boxes. In the following step the network interfaces and network protocols must be configured.
The following objects must be configured.
Group of Acme Packet Net-Net boxes that operate as one system
Provides synchronization, supports failover operations and load-balancing
Box (add up to 16 boxes in a cluster)
share-media-ports (use for active-active HA config only)
share-signaling-entries (use for HA config only)
share-turn-ports (use only if using TURN in HA config)
mirror-media-streams (use only in HA config)
media-partners (use only for distributed media to other clusters)
vrrp* (use only for HA config)
ipsec-sa (use only for IPSec)
ipsec-transport (use only for IPSec)
ike (use only if using IKE)
* Requires system specific configuration.
How to configure a ClusterParent topic: SBC (Session Border Controller)
The cluster configuration assigns a name to the cluster and allows boxes to be added to the cluster.
How to configure a Box
The box configuration defines the Acme Packet Net-Net OS-E and Net-Net 2600 (formerly Covergence CXC-354) settings and interfaces on the specified physical device.
How to configure an Interface
The interface configuration specifies the Acme Packet Net-Net OS-E and Net-Net 2600 (formerly Covergence CXC-354) physical network interface.
How to configure IP Properties and Objects
The IP properties and Objects configuration specifies the parameters, which describe the properties of the IP interface.
How to configure a Media Object
The media object configuration defines the parameters which specify a media object.
How to configure a SIP Object
The SIP object configuration specifies the parameters for the Session Initiation Protocol according to RFC 3261.
How to configure a SSH Object
The SSH Object configuration specifies the parameters which must be defined on the Net-Net server in order to provide secure client/server communication, remote login, and file transfer using encryption and public-key authentication.
How to configure an ICMP Object
The ICMP object configuration specifies the ICMP protocol parameters on the Acme Packet Net-Net OS-E and Net-Net 2600 (formerly Covergence CXC-354).
How to configure a Routing Object
The routing object configuration is used to create static IP routes to destination networks and hosts (routers) connected to the Internet. This static route takes precedence over dynamically learned routes and is not overwritten by dynamic routing protocols (such as RIP and OSPF) running in your network.
How to configure a Route Object
The route object configuration adds one static route the system routing table.
How to configure a WEB Object
The WEB object configuration enables the Web server and provides access to the CMS graphical user interface.
