Distributed Epipe Service Configuration

In the previous Epipe Example, we have talked about Local Epipe Configuration. So, we have used only one device and our Epipe service was in this device. Here, we will use two router and we will show the “Distributed Epipe Configuration”. This configuration is widely used VPWS Epipe Service.

For Distributed Epipe Service, we will use the below topology. As you can see, here, we will use two routers and one more term, SDP (Service Distribution Point).

distributed-epipe-configuration

Here, the first configuration steps are the same. We will create service and link it to a customer. We will un shutdown the service. We will add SAPs at the two end. Here, we will add one more thing, SDP configuration.

Firstly, let’s create Epipe Service and link it to a Customer.

Alcatel-Router-1 # config
Alcatel-Router-1 > config# service
Alcatel-Router-1 > config > service# epipe 20
Alcatel-Router-1 > config > service > epipe# customer 3 create
Alcatel-Router-1 > config > service > epipe# description “Epipe-to-Router-2”
Alcatel-Router-1 > config > service > epipe# no shutdown

Now, let’s create SAP under the Epipe Service.

Alcatel-Router-1 > config > service > epipe# sap 1/1/1 create
Alcatel-Router-1 > config > service > epipe> sap # no shutdown
Alcatel-Router-1 > config > service > epipe> sap # exit

Now, the different part is came. We will configure SDP. SDP is showed like below:

SDP-ID : VC-ID

Here, SDP-ID is local to the router. It can be any value. But, VC-ID must be same on both routers.

Alcatel-Router-1 > config > service # epipe 20 customer 3
Alcatel-Router-1 > config > service > epipe# spoke-sdp 10:100
Alcatel-Router-1 > config > service > epipe>spoke-sdp# no shutdown
Alcatel-Router-1 > config > service > epipe>spoke-sdp# exit
Alcatel-Router-1 > config > service > epipe# no shutdown

Now, let’s configure Epipe Service on the second router.

Alcatel-Router-2 # config
Alcatel-Router-2 > config# service
Alcatel-Router-2 > config > service# epipe 20
Alcatel-Router-2 > config > service > epipe# customer 3 create
Alcatel-Router-2 > config > service > epipe# description “epipe to Router-1”
Alcatel-Router-2 > config > service > epipe# no shutdown

Alcatel-Router-2 > config > service > epipe# sap 1/1/1 create
Alcatel-Router-2 > config > service > epipe> sap # no shutdown
Alcatel-Router-2 > config > service > epipe> sap # exit

Alcatel-Router-2 > config > service # epipe 20 customer 3
Alcatel-Router-2 > config > service > epipe# spoke-sdp 30:100
Alcatel-Router-2 > config > service > epipe>spoke-sdp# no shutdown
Alcatel-Router-2 > config > service > epipe>spoke-sdp# exit
Alcatel-Router-2 > config > service > epipe# no shutdown

Distributed Epipe Verification

To verify these services, we can use many commands on Alcatel-Lucent 7750 SR Routers. These commands are given below:

• Show service customer
• Show service id [base | all | labels | sdp [detail]]
• Show service service-using
• Show service sap-using
• Show service sdp-using
• Show service sdp [detail]
• Show router ldp bindings

Epipe for Multiple Customer and Service per SAP

In a SAP, we can define one more Services, also one more Epipe service. To do this, we need to change the encapsulation type of the SAP port. This encapsulation type must be “dot1q”.

This is done like below:

Alcatel-Router-1 > config # port 1/1/1
Alcatel-Router-1 > config > port # ethernet encap-type dot1q
Alcatel-Router-1 > config > port # exit

After that, in the same SAP, different customers and services can be used with sub interfaces like SAP 1/1/1.10, 1/1/1.11 etc.

Applying SAP Parameters

Under the SAPs, we can add additional filters, policies,qos etc. to these interfaces. We can add these under SAP through ingress or egress.

Here, we assume that, our filters, policies, qos that we will add, are pre configured. Now, we will show how to add these filters and policies under SAP.

Alcatel-Router-1 > config > service # epipe 20
Alcatel-Router-1 > config > service > epipe # sap 1/1/1
Alcatel-Router-1 > config > service > epipe > sap # ingress
Alcatel-Router-1 > config > service > epipe > sap > ingress # qos 123
Alcatel-Router-1 > config > service > epipe > sap > ingress # filter ip 10
Alcatel-Router-1 > config > service > epipe > sap > ingress # exit
Alcatel-Router-1 > config > service > epipe > sap # egress
Alcatel-Router-1 > config > service > epipe > sap > egress # qos 456
Alcatel-Router-1 > config > service > epipe > sap > egress # scheduler-policy OurPolicy
Alcatel-Router-1 > config > service > epipe > sap > egress # exit

Deleting an Epipe Service

To delete an Epipe Service, we need to go through some steps. These steps are given below:

• Shuting down SAPs
• Shuting down SDPs
• Deleting SAPs
• Deleting SDPs
• Shutting down the Service

Here, we will delete the service that we have created before.

Firstly, let’s shut down SAPs and SDPs on Router and Router 2.

Alcatel-Router-1 > config > service # epipe 20
Alcatel-Router-1 > config > service> epipe # sap 1/1/1
Alcatel-Router-1 > config > service> epipe > sap # shutdown
Alcatel-Router-1 > config > service> epipe > sap # exit

Alcatel-Router-2 > config > service # epipe 20
Alcatel-Router-2 > config > service> epipe # sap 1/1/1
Alcatel-Router-2 > config > service> epipe > sap # shutdown
Alcatel-Router-2 > config > service> epipe > sap # exit

Alcatel-Router-1 > config > service> epipe # spoke-sdp 10:100
Alcatel-Router-1 > config > service> epipe > spoke-sdp# shutdown
Alcatel-Router-1 > config > service> epipe > spoke-sdp# exit

Alcatel-Router-2 > config > service> epipe # spoke-sdp 30:100
Alcatel-Router-2 > config > service> epipe > spoke-sdp# shutdown
Alcatel-Router-2 > config > service> epipe > spoke-sdp# exit

Now, let’s delete SAPs and SDPs.

Alcatel-Router-1 > config > service> epipe # delete sap 1/1/1

Alcatel-Router-2 > config > service> epipe # delete sap 1/1/1

Alcatel-Router-1 > config > service> epipe # delete spoke-sdp 10:100
Alcatel-Router-1 > config > service> epipe #exit

Alcatel-Router-2 > config > service> epipe # delete spoke-sdp 30:100
Alcatel-Router-2 > config > service> epipe # exit

Lastly, we will delete Epipe Service.

Alcatel-Router-1 > config > service # no epipe 20
Alcatel-Router-2 > config > service # no epipe 20
