Sub Interfaces on E1

Hello

I need to create two point to point links between two routers connected via E1.

They need to be in separate VRFs for my requirement.

Is there any way I can create that on an E1 interface? Please let me know.

Many Thanks in advance.

Regards

Kaushik.

Re: Sub Interfaces on E1

Hello Kaushik,

I have used fractional E1 in the past for this kind of scenario.

you can use fractional E1 for this, under controller e1 you can define more then one channel-group, each of them with different timeslots associated. Two different serial interfaces are generated from this

controller e1 x/y

channel-group 1 timeslots 1-15

channel-group 2 timeslots 17-30

(check the syntax of the commands above it may be different)

this generates two serial interfaces

serx/y:1

serx/y:2

you can associated the first to VRF1 and the second to VRF2 do this on both routers and use appropriate addresses.

To be noted this provides a fixed division of resources ( 64 kbps timeslots) between the two derived serial interfaces.

Hope to help

Hello Kaushik,

thanks for your kind rating.

yes in your case you can split the timeslots in an asymmetrical way to provide more bandwidth to user traffic.

HI Giuseppe

Thanks a lot for your reply.

One VRF is for management and the other for main traffic. So is it worthile to split timeslots as 1-28 and 29-30 to have the max bandwidth available for the traffic?

I created but one of the slots is fluctuating .. at the moment the connection is just back to back; i split the slot as 1-29 and 30-31; should i change the slots to 1-28, 29-31 for bandwidth; could it be a bandwidth issue?

in any case the bandwidth should not matter
