Enabling VoIP Bonding
Applies to version(s): v2.7.
1- Access the telecom baseboard of the Tmedia unit:
- a. For TMG800 and TMG3200, access the unit using SSH, then connect to the telecom baseboard using telnet.
- b. For other platforms, such as TMP800, TMP6400 and TMG7800, connect to the telecom baseboard directly using telnet and the eth0 IP address.
2- In the baseboard prompt, use the set_voip0bonding shell command to enable VoIP Bonding.
set_voip0bonding <0|1> [IP_To_Ping] [Ping_Timeout] [Retries]
<0|1>selects if the feature is enabled (1 to enable). When the feature is enabled, the Ethernet PHY states are polled periodically to discover which port is available.
[IP_To_Ping]is the IP address to send ICMP echo requests to verify if a logical path is available. When no response is received within the requested timeout after the specified number of retries, the port is considered temporarly unusable and the other VoIP port is used instead.
[Ping_Timeout]is the ICMP echo request timeout in milliseconds
[Retries]is the number of ICMP echo request retries to send before doing a switchover.
set_voip0bonding 1 10.3.10.187 1000 1
set_voip0bonding 1 220.127.116.11 2500 3
3- Reboot the unit (note: this causes downtime).
4- (optional) After the reboot, access the telecom baseboard again and verify that the VoIP Bonding was successfully enabled:
