Introduction

This product bulletin provides content and delivery information for Cisco IOS ® Software Release 12.3(14)YX, which is the release vehicle for the Cisco ® Packet Data Serving Node (PDSN) and Cisco Mobile Wireless Home Agent Release 3.0. It is also the migration vehicle for Cisco IOS Software Release 12.3(11)YF, the current release vehicle for the Cisco PDSN and Mobile Wireless Home Agent 2.1. This release is focused on the Cisco 7206VXR Router, the Cisco 7600 Series routers, and the Cisco Catalyst ® 6500 Series switches. The Cisco 7600 Series and Catalyst 6500 Series use the Multiprocessor WAN Application Module (MWAM). The features delivered with this new release will be incorporated into the Cisco IOS Software Release 12.4(5th)T, but Release 12.3(14)YX represents a release vehicle that provides these features sooner. For more information about the Cisco IOS Software release process, please see Product Bulletin Number 537.

Feature Details

Session Redundancy

Cisco PDSN Session Redundancy provides support for failover of the Cisco PDSN application and PPP protocol session for Simple IP and Mobile IP calls. This minimizes the impact of a Cisco PDSN failure on the mobile user experience.

Simple IPv6

The Cisco PDSN simple IP service has been enhanced to allow both simple IPv4 and simple IPv6 access, as defined in IS-835B. The Cisco PDSN will support the following simultaneous sessions:

• Simple IPv4 and Simple IPv6

• Mobile IPv4 and Simple IPV6

• Simple IPv4, Mobile IPv4 and Simple IPv6

RADIUS Server Load Balancing

The RADIUS Server Load-Balancing feature is a mechanism to share the load of RADIUS Authentication and Accounting transactions across a set of RADIUS servers. With RADIUS Server Load Balancing, the Cisco PDSN distributes the transaction load across multiple servers in a server group. It tracks the slower servers and reduces the transaction load on those servers.

RADIUS Server Selection Based on Realm

This RADIUS Server Selection feature supports sending the full username for authentication, without stripping the domain name. The RADIUS Server will be selected based on the domain name, that is, from user@domain.

Conditional Debug Enhancements

The CDMA, PPP, AAA, and Mobile IP FA conditional debugs are further enhanced to display the MNID/username with every line. This simplifies user debugging.

Feature Details

Home Agent Redundancy for Active-Active Scenario

The robust Cisco Mobile Wireless Home Agent Redundancy feature available for active-standby configurations now supports active-active configurations. This provides customers with further flexibility in their network designs.

Home Agent Accounting Enhancements

The Cisco Mobile Wireless Home Agent Accounting feature is enhanced to add accounting redundancy, and packet count, byte count and additional accounting records.

Virtual Routing and Forwarding Enhancements

The VRF function, which provides support for overlapping IP address for mobile nodes for the mobile IP flows that are opened for different realms, is enhanced to allow configuration of NAI to VRF mapping on the RADIUS server. An option is provided to send a registration reject with code 136 and new Cisco Mobile Wireless Home Agent address if the Cisco Mobile Wireless Home Agent has to assign a different address than requested by PDSN/Foreign Agent. This call sequence makes the VRF solution compliant to the IS-835D standard.

Mobile User Access Control Lists

Mobile User ACLs provide support for per-user packet filtering. With this feature, for a successfully authenticated registration request, the RADIUS server will return inACL and outACL attributes in the access response to Cisco Mobile Wireless Home Agent.

DNS Server Address Assignment

DNS Server Address Assignment provides support for IS-835D-defined attributes to push the DNS sever address to the mobile as an NVSE in the mobileip registration request. The mobile node is able to learn the primary and secondary DNS server address of the home domain.

IP Reachability

IP Reachability provides the capability to update a DNS server in the home network with the current authorized mobile node IP address. This feature is implemented per IS-835D standard.

RADIUS Server Load Balancing

The RADIUS Server Load-Balancing feature is a mechanism to share the load of RADIUS Authentication and Accounting transactions across a set of RADIUS servers. With RADIUS Server Load Balancing, the Cisco Mobile Wireless Home Agent distributes the transaction load across multiple servers in a server group. It tracks the slower servers and reduces the transaction load on those servers.

RADIUS Server Selection Based on Realm

This RADIUS Server Selection feature supports sending the full username for authentication, without stripping the domain name. The RADIUS Server will be selected based on the domain name (that is, from user@domain).

Conditional Debug Enhancements

The Mobile IP conditional debugs are further enhanced to display the MNID/username with every line. This simplifies user debugging.

Cisco Mobile Wireless Home Agent and Cisco PDSN 3.0 on the Cisco 7600 Series

Cisco Mobile Wireless Home Agent and Cisco PDSN operate on separate Cisco MWAMs. They can be licensed by MWAM (five processors), or by processor (single image). Note that Cisco PDSN and home agent images cannot coexist on the same Cisco MWAM, though a home agent MWAM and a PDSN MWAM can coexist in the same chassis.
Cisco Mobile Wireless Home Agent and Cisco PDSN on the Cisco MWAM are supported with the Cisco Catalyst 6500/7600 Series Supervisor Engine 2 and the Multilayer Switch Feature Card (MSFC2), and the Cisco Catalyst 6500/7600 Series Supervisor Engine 720-3B and 720-3BXL. As the Supervisor Engine 2 is in the end-of-life process, the Supervisor Engine 720-3BXL is recommended for new orders. The 12.2.18-SXD3 or later software version must run on the Supervisor Engine 2; the 12.2.18-SXE1 or later software version must run on the Supervisor Engine 720-3B or 720-3BXL.
Table 10 shows the recommended hardware configuration for a Cisco 7613 Router to support Cisco Mobile Wireless Home Agent and/or Cisco PDSN 3.0. Recommended supervisor software is also included.

Cisco Mobile Wireless Home Agent and Cisco PDSN 3.0 on the Cisco 7600 Series with DES3 Encryption

Cisco Mobile Wireless Home Agent and Cisco PDSN operate on one Cisco MWAM. They can be licensed by MWAM (five processors), or by processor (single image). Note that Cisco PDSN and Cisco Mobile Wireless Home Agent images cannot coexist on the same Cisco MWAM, though a home agent MWAM and a PDSN MWAM can coexist in the same chassis.
Cisco Mobile Wireless Home Agent and Cisco PDSN on the Cisco MWAM are supported with the Cisco Catalyst 6500/7600 Series Supervisor Engine 2 and the Multilayer Switch Feature Card (MSFC2), and the Cisco Catalyst 6500/7600 Series Supervisor Engine 720-3B and 720-3BXL. As the Supervisor Engine 2 is in the end-of-life process, the Supervisor Engine 720-3BXL is recommended for new orders. The 12.2.18-SXD3 or later software version must run on the Supervisor Engine 2; the 12.2.18-SXE1 or later software version must run on the Supervisor Engine 720-3B or 720-3BXL.
One IPSec VPN security module, or one IPSec VPN Shared Port Adaptor, is required per chassis. Because the IPSec VPN-SM has reached end of life, any new Cisco MWAM configurations with IPSec are recommended to use the IPSec VPN-SPA. A minimum of one SPA Carrier-400 and one IPSec VPN Shared Port Adapter is required. IPSec operation is supported only with hardware acceleration.
The same Cisco Mobile Wireless Home Agent and Cisco PDSN images support both non-IPSec and IPSec operation.
Table 11 lists the recommended hardware configuration for a Cisco 7613 Router to support Cisco Mobile Wireless Home Agent and/or Cisco PDSN 3.0 with 3DES encryption. Recommended supervisor engine software is also included.
