Configuring Token Ring LAN Emulation
Last Updated: December 4, 2012
This chapter describes how to configure Token Ring LAN emulation (LANE) on the Catalyst 5000
platform. This feature is supported on the following Catalyst 5000 series ATM modules:
Support for the Token Ring LANE feature was first introduced in Cisco IOS Release 12.0(7)T.
Note
Beginning with Cisco IOS Release 11.3, all commands supported on the Cisco 7500 series routers are also
supported on the Cisco 7000 series.
For a complete description of the commands in this chapter, refer to the the Cisco IOS Switching Services
Command Reference. To locate documentation of other commands that appear in this chapter, use the
command reference master index or search online.

  • Page 2: Token Ring Lane On Atm

    By using Token Ring LANE, you can scale your networks to larger sizes while preserving your investment in LAN technology. Note The Catalyst 5000 series Cisco IOS Token Ring LANE software does not support Ethernet LANE or RFC 1483 permanent virtual connections (PVCs). LANE Token Ring Components LANE defines emulated LANs (ELANs).
  • Page 3: Network Support

    Note ELAN components coexist on one or more Cisco routers or Catalyst switches that contain an ATM module. On Cisco routers or Catalyst switches the LES and the BUS are combined into a single entity.
  • Page 4: Restrictions

    SRB, source-route transparent bridging (SRT), and source-route switching The Cisco implementation of LANE over IEEE 802.5 uses existing terminology and configuration options for Token Rings and provides for the IEEE 802.5 transport of Token Ring frames across an ATM switching fabric.

    Note The ATM module uses a subset of the Cisco IOS software. Generally, the Cisco IOS software works the same on the ATM module as it does on routers. After configuring the ATM module, you are ready to implement LANE.
  • Page 7: Creating A Lane Plan And Worksheet

    Note The ATM module uses a subset of Cisco IOS software. Generally, Cisco IOS software works the same on the ATM module as it does on routers. To configure the ATM module, you must use the ATM configuration mode in the Cisco IOS software. To enter global configuration mode, enter the configure EXEC command at the privileged EXEC prompt (ATM#).

    Configuring the ATM Module from the Terminal Default LANE Configuration • Names of the ELANs that will have unrestricted membership. • Names of the ELANs that will have restricted membership. • Local segment ID for the ELAN. The local segment ID must be identical to the ring number of the TrCRF.

    Configuring the Prefix on the LightStream 1010 Switch Before you configure LANE components on a Catalyst 5000 series switch ATM module, you must configure the Cisco LightStream 1010 switch with the ATM address prefix to be used by all LANE components in the switch cloud.
  • Page 10: Setting Up The Signalling Pvc

    Note On the Cisco LightStream 1010 switch, the ATM address prefix is called the node ID. Prefixes must be 26 digits long. If you provide fewer than 26 digits, zeros are added to the right of the specified value to fill it to 26 digits.
  • Page 11: Displaying Lane Default Addresses

    Entering the LECS ATM Address on the LightStream 1010 Switch You must enter the LECS ATM address into each ATM switch (such as a Cisco LightStream 1010 ATM switch) connected to an ATM module in your LANE network and save the address permanently so that the value will not be lost when the switch is reset or powered off.

    Setting Up the Database for Restricted-Membership ELANs, page 15 Setting Up the Database for the Default ELAN When you configure a Catalyst 5000 series switch ATM module as the LECS for one default ELAN, you need to provide the following information:...

The default ELAN cannot be a restricted-membership ELAN.

  • Page 22: Configuring Redundant Lane Services

    Configuring Redundant LANE Services The LANE protocol does not specify where any of the ELAN server entities should be located, but for the purpose of reliability and performance, Cisco implements these server components on its routers and LAN switches. With Phase I LANE, only one LECS, capable of serving multiple ELANs, and only one LES per ELAN could exist for an ATM cloud.
  • Page 23 LES/BUS and LECS redundancy works only with Cisco LECS and LES combinations. Third-party LANE server components continue to interoperate with the LECS and LES/BUS function of Cisco routers and switches, but cannot take advantage of the redundancy features.
  • Page 24 Configuring Redundant LANE Services Enabling ILMI Keepalive Timeout Enabling ILMI Keepalive Timeout If enabled, ILMI sends keepalive messages on an ongoing basis on the active physical (PHY) to the switch, and the switch responds. If the response is not obtained for the last four polls, the ILMI timer times out and the Dual PHY changes from active PHY to backup PHY.
