ATM Dsl Aggregation RFC-1483
From ImageStream Router Documentation
- Dsl Aggregation can be accomplished via several methods. The method outlined on this page describes dsl aggregation using Multiprotocol Encapsulation over ATM. This is commonly referred to as ATM route-bridge or Rfc 1483 bridging.
- The router must be running at least Imagestream Linux 4.2.0
- Be sure to have the correct Pvc information from your provider. An allocated an IP network for your Dsl clients and chose the IP address for the router out of that subnet.
- The connection from your provider must be ATM.
- The customer end-point devices need to configured to run in ATM Route-Bridge mode, the correct Pvc information will likely be different from the Pvc on the Isp side. Verify the correct settings with your Dsl provider.
In this example, we are going to assume the following network settings.
- The Router has a WAN IP address of 22.214.171.124 with a netmask of 255.255.255.0
- The Dsl Customer with VPI 1 and VCI 101 has a description of High Speed User
- This customer has an IP address of 126.96.36.199
- This customer has a download bandwidth of 6Mbit
- The correct ATM QoS settings for this Pvc is VBR at 6Mbit
- The Dsl Customer with VPI 1 and VCI 101 has a description of Low Speed User
- This customer has an IP address of 188.8.131.52
- This customer has a download bandwidth of 384Kbit
- The correct ATM QoS settings for this Pvc is VBR at 384Kbit
- The interface Serial0.200 is the start of a PVC Range group of Midspeed Users
- The "range pvc" command sets up 40 interfaces Serial0.200-Serial0.240
- The customers in this group have a download bandwith of 1.5Mbit
- The correct ATM QoS settings for these Pvc's is VBR at 1.5Mbit

- Important Details of this configuration.
- The router will automatically create a bridge interface for each configured Serial interface, these interfaces will be named brSerial****. For example Serial0.101 will have an automatically generated bridge interface named brSerial0.101.
- The combination of the "bandwidth" Command and the "vbr" command prevents the Pvc from transmitting at a rate greater than the set bandwidth. These commands are required in most real world configurations due to ATM QoS in Dsl providers ATM networks.
