Chapter 3 Creating a FlexUNI/EVC Ethernet Policy
Setting the Interface Attributes
Figure 3-4 EVC Policy Editor - Interface Attributes Window
To set the FlexUNI/EVC interface attributes, perform the following steps.
Step 1 Choose an Encapsulation type.
The choices are:
• DOT1QTRUNK—Configures the UNI as a trunk with 802.1q encapsulation. If the UNI belongs to
a directly connected and FlexUNI link, this setting signifies that the incoming frames are 802.1q
encapsulated and that they match the VLAN ID configured for the link. This specific topology does
not involve a trunk UNI as such.
• DOT1QTUNNEL—Configures the UNI as an 802.1q tunnel (also known as a dot1q tunnel or
• ACCESS—Configures the UNI as an access port.
Step 2 Check the Standard UNI Port check box to enable port security.
This is the default. When you uncheck the check box, the port is treated as an uplink with no security
features, and the window dynamically changes to eliminate items related to port security.
Step 3 Check the UNI Shutdown check box if you want to leave the UNI port shut during service activation,
for example, when the service provider wants to deploy a service in the network but wants to activate it
at a later time.
