SBC 1000/2000 4.1.x : Managing Ethernet Ports

Sonus SBC 1000

The Sonus SBC 1000 has two Ethernet ports used for communicating with the IP network. All SIP traffic is carried on these two ports. Unlike the Sonus SBC 2000, this model has no dedicated Management Port.

Sonus SBC 2000

The Sonus SBC 2000 has four Ethernet ports and one Ethernet Management port. By default, each of the four non-management ports are in their own system created VLAN, and are isolated from one another.


If the unit is equipped with a built-in ASM, then all ASM traffic is carried uniquely through this Ethernet port.

For communication between the Sonus SBC 1000/2000 and the ASM to work properly, the ASM port's Default Untagged VLAN must be set to a VLAN whose logical IP address is in the same subnet as the ASM's IP address. For example, if the ASM port's default VLAN is set to Ethernet 1 VLAN, then the logical interface Ethernet 1 IP must have its IP address in the same subnet as the ASM IP.
