Initial MicroMAX local web management settings


The following are the basic steps required through the BS via its WEB interface prior to configuring its properties through Netspan. Ensure that your Web browser with which you want to access the Web-based Management is running Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.00 or higher or Mozzila Firefox release 2.0 or higher. To connect to MicroMAX via the WEB interface 1. Connect to MicroMAX Base Station Radio (BSR) using WEB Defaults:
IP address 10.0.0.123 (255.0.0.0) User name admin Password - admin

2. Go to Addresses and modify the IP address according to your network 3. Click Submit The following is displayed

Creating Service Profiles


Service profiles are a set of grouped rules that classify data traffic flowing over WiMaX links between subscribers and Base stations on both directions. These profiles are grouped in the following hierarchy: Packet classifiers service classes service products.

These completed service products are then assigned/ provisioned to the Subscriber stations in order to provide basic to advanced scheduling services and appropriate controlled traffic flow of data on the Uplink and Downlink directions of Links . In addition to the service product a basic/advanced custom configuration profile needs to be created and provisioned to the ss. These are RF related parameters.

To create SS custom configuration profiles ( required for later provisioning stage )

12. Navigate to Service Profiles and then SS Custom Configuration (in the left-hand column)

13. Click Add and Edit a basic Subscriber Station Custom Configuration Profile to service your linked Subscribers (Name, dynamic Services, Modulation Settings)

Note: at this stage leave the maximum subchannel width as full (default )

14. Click Apply To create a Subscriber station VLAN Port Profile: ( required for later provisioning stage ) 15. Navigate to Service Profiles ss Vlan port - click on ADD

16. Type a name and description - Choose port mode as RAW

To create packet classifiers


1. Navigate back to Service Profiles and then Packet Classifier (in the left-hand column) 2. Click Add 3. Set Name and Priority

Note: the priority ranges are between 0-255 as this is the first rule validated for arriving packets the priority set here primarily affects

4. Leaving all parameters at their default values will create a wide open "filter" allowing ALL types of layer 2 and layer 3 traffic to flow. As shown below:

7. Click OK

To create service products

Service products are applied to Downlink as well as for Uplink directions hence The creation of the service product will be done and applied for both link directions as Indicated bellow. 8. Navigate to Service Profiles and then Service Product (in the left-hand column) 9. Click Add 10. Set Name (mandatory) and optionally a description of the service product.( in the example bellow the direction "uplink"/ "downlink" was used as the description. 11. Click Add 12. Select Direction Downlink from dialog (dropdown list) 13. Select Service Class from the drop down list choose the service class previously created. 14. In the Service Flow Template Classifiers window - choose from the drop down classifier list the previously created packet classifier.

15. Click OK

Provisioning the Service products to the subscriber stations

Provisioning the Service products to the subscriber stations


Following the Subscriber station power up and connectivity to the Base station the service products as created in the previous chapter needs to be provisioned to these SS's. The following describes configuration and provisioning via BS settings on Netspan. 1. Start the SS and verify its operational state. 2. Navigate to Configuration Management and then to Base Station 3. Double-click on the BS you have previously configured and select the registered SS's tab As shown below:

4. Double-click on the specific SS 5. Click on the Provisioning tab 6. Click Edit 7. Select Service Product you have previously created from dialog (dropdown list) in the Service pane (section) 8. Select The custom Config Profile from dialog (dropdown list) in the Service pane (section) 9. at the Port Vlan Profile choose the appropriated profile created in previous steps. 10. Set Services to Enabled (select Yes)

Basic traffic tests to validate the proper provisioned service product

Basic traffic tests to validate the proper provisioned service product


You may now choose any tool to upload different traffic types over the Downlink as well as the Uplink of your newly configured and provisioned Link

The very basic tests suggested bellow can serve as a basic indication to the correctness of your configuration steps:

Connect any laptop/Pc to one of the SDA ports powering up the MicroMax BSR Connect any Laptop / PC to the Subscriber station: in case of EasySt : directly to its LAN Port IN case the subscriber is a ProSt : to or one of the SDA LAN ports powering the specific ProsT Properly/Logically Adjust the TCP/IP properties of both connected PC's Perform simple Echo ping sessions between both PC addresses. Verify proper Ping reply continuity.
