Got one or two customers who may move to UFB. Router installed is a Cisco UC320, which runs their phone system.

The UC320 cannot dot VLAN tag on WAN side; so will only work for non-tagged PPPoE connection.

Question: is there some type of router I can put between the ONT and the UC320 to take care of the VLAN 10 tag, but still allow the UC320 to do the PPPoE auth? This would need to work transparently so as to avoid double NAT etc.

A short how too guide would be great too.

Cheers




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

One of these should do the trick.

Ditch the default config.
Add a VLAN10 subinterface to ether1.
Create a bridge interface and add your VLAN10 as well as ether2 to it.
Plug ONT to ether1, UC320 to ether2, Profit?

A Mikrotik device such as the RB750 mentioned above it the cheapest option. The easiest option would be to use a VLAN capable switch, but you're not going to get one new for as cheap as an RB750.

they've come down in cost a lot, still not as cheap as rb750, but a vlan capable switch is useful for more than just that..

based on ascent's pricing cost diff is about 3x.

8 port vlan capable switch with poe (~360) http://www.ascent.co.nz/productspecification.aspx?ItemID=414726

16port vlan capable switch (~$320) http://www.ascent.co.nz/productspecification.aspx?ItemID=410699

routerboard 750 (~$120, out of stock)  http://www.ascent.co.nz/productspecification.aspx?ItemID=411043

the switches also have fibre, not including those ports in the count.

May be able to get some cheap manages switches on Trademe? Maybe even your current switch there already can do VLAN tagging?

considering they're using phones, if they're not already they should have a seperate vlan for phones, and use poe anyway...

You could just order the bitstream 2 service as an untagged UNI?

I'm pretty sure off the top of ky head when you do this you lose the ability to use 802.1p tags for traffic and lose the CIR meaning there are no high priority and low priority queues. As the customer is using VoIP I wouldn't recommend this.

You are right, untagged = no VLAN, so no 802.1p bit.

But - OP says the router cannot VLAN tag, so I assumed nothing heading into the UNI would be tagged... Can the UC320 really only pass through VLAN tags but not add tags for PPPoE? Sounds odd to me.

Are you confusing 802.1p and 802.1q?

The UC320 can do DSCP and 802.1p tags which are passed through. I obviously just can't do 802.1q tags.

Not at all.

The .1p bit is part of the .1q vlan header. you must have a vlan tag to be able to set the p-bit marking.
the only way to have 802.1p 'without' .1q vlan tag is to have the vlan tag set to 0 (so in relality you are vlan tagging anyway...)

I'd be as surprised as my last post if the UC320 could set the vlan to 0 and set the .1p bit without also allowing the vlan ID to be set as something other than 0.

DSCP is a layer 3 priority tag which we dont use or translate to .1p in UFB.
