1. Introduction
The Avaya C360 Converged Stackable Switch Series is a line of stackable, multilayer switches
that provide high availability, Quality of Service (QoS), and IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet
(PoE) to enhance converged network infrastructure operations. The Avaya C360 series switches
have four models available as shown in Table 1.

Table 1: C360 Switch Configurations
The C360 Multilayer Switch provides a rich feature set including VLAN support, Stacking,
Security, QoS and web based management. Some of the major features provided by the C360
are:
LAN services
-- Multiple VLANs per port
-- 802.1Q tagging
-- 802.1w Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol
-- 802.1X PBNAC (Port Based Network Access Control)
-- Stacking
-- LAG (Link Aggregate Group)
-- 802.3af Power over Ethernet
Layer 3 Support
-- IP Routing (RIP and OSPF)
-- Inter-VLAN routing
-- VRRP (Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol)
QoS (CoS and DiffServ)
The built-in Device Manager (Embedded Web Manager)
These Application Notes focus on the configuration of C360 in these areas: VLAN Tagging,
QoS, IP Routing and 802.1x Authentication. Note that these Application Notes will not cover the
configuration for Avaya S8300 Media Server/G700 Media Gateway, Avaya IP Office, RADIUS
and DHCP server. Please refer to the Application Notes listed in the Appendix B for their
configuration.

2. Configure the Avaya C364T Multilayer Stackable Switch
The configuration of C360 can be accomplished by using either the web interface, or the
command line interface. These Application Notes demonstrate the configuration using the
command line interface (CLI) via the switch’s console connection. To access the C360 switch
via its console port, configure a terminal emulator with the following settings:
Bits per second
Data bits
Parity
Stop bits
Flow control
9600
8
None
1
None
Log into the C360 switch with an appropriate login ID and password. Following the steps below
to configure the device.

Description
This section displays the layer 2 switch port, VLAN and in-band management interface
configuration. The uplink to the C363T-PWR is connected via its Gigabit Port 1/51.
Configure VLAN, in-band interface and assign ports to VLAN. In this
configuration, two VLANs are created: VLAN 150 for data, and VLAN 100 for
voice.
C360-1(super)# configure
C360-1# set vlan 100 name voice100
C360-1# set vlan 150 name data150
C360-1# set interface inband 150 150.1.1.2 255.255.255.0
C360-1# set port vlan 100 1/1-10 -- assign ports 1-10 to VLAN 100
C360-1# set port vlan 150 1/11-20 -- assign ports 11-20 to VLAN 150
C360-1# set port vlan 150 1/51
-- assign Gigabit port 51 to VLAN150
C360-1# set trunk 1/1 dot1q
-- set port 1/1 to 802.1Q mode
C360-1# set port vlan-binding-mode 1/1 bind-to-configured
C360-1# set trunk 1/2 dot1q
-- set port 1/2 to 802.1Q mode
C360-1# set port vlan-binding-mode 1/1 bind-to-configured
C360-1# set trunk 1/51 dot1q
-- set Gigabit port 51 to 802.1Q mode
C360-1# set port vlan-binding-mode 1/51 bind-to-all
Configure 802.1x authentication. Assuming a RADIUS server has been configured
and connected to the network as shown in Figure 1. Note that globally enabling
the dot1x authentication applies to every switch port on the switch. For devices
that do not support dot1x, for example, IP telephones, these switch ports should
be set to force-authorize before dot1x is enabled on the switch.
C360-1# set port dot1x port-control 1/11 force-authorize
-- disable the dot1x on the port connected to RADIUS
C360-1# set port dot1x port-control 1/1 force-authorize
-- disable the dot1x on the port connected to the G700 Media Gateway
C360-1# set port dot1x port-control 1/2 force-authorize
-- disable the dot1x on the port connected to the IP telephone
C360-1# set dot1x system-auth-control enable -- enable the dot1x on the switch
C360-1# set radius authentication enable
-- enable radius authentication
C360-1# set radius authentication server 150.1.1.10 primary -- assign the radius
server as a primary server

Description
Configure Layer 2(CoS) and Layer 3 QoS (DSCP). By default, all switch ports
are set to priority level 0 and not to trust CoS/DSCP value from incoming packets.
To prioritize traffic based on packets’ CoS or DSCP value, the command “ ip access-listdscp trust-cos-dscp” can be used. To prioritize traffic for untagged packet, the command
“set port level 0-7“ can be used. Each switch port has four transmit queues. The CoS
to queue assignment are as follows:
CoS:
Q1
0,1
Q2
2,3
Q3
4,5
Q4
6,7
All DSCP to CoS mapping are assigned by the switch internal mapping table. For default
CoS-DSCP mapping, refer to Appendix A. The switch uses WRR as its default setting.
The strict priority queuing can be set on the switch to priority VoIP if needed. The
configuration below shows how to set strict priority queuing on the switch.
C360-1# set queuing scheme strict 1 -- set switch queuing scheme to strict priority
C360-1# set port level 1/11 6 -- set port 1/11 priority level to 6 for RADIUS
C360-1# session router
Router-1 (super)# ip access-list 100 1 permit ip any any
Router-1 (super)# ip access-list-dscp trust 100 trust-cos-dscp
-- Create an access list for all IP traffic and set switch globally to trust both cos and dscp
values for incoming traffic.
3. Configure the Avaya C363T-PWR
The Avaya C363T-PWR provides the same functionality as the Avaya C646T Multilayer Switch.
In addition, the C363T-PWR provides IEEE 802.3af-compliant “Inline” DC power over Ethernet
for all its 24 10/100 switch ports.
Power over Ethernet is enabled by default for all 10/100 switch ports. The C363T-PWR switch
uses the specific resistance powered device signature and PD (powered device) connection
verification to determine whether to supply power to a given port. Each port can supply up to
15.4W by default. The power priority mechanism is also implemented in C363T-PWR. This
mechanism determines the order in which ports should be guaranteed power in case the power
resources of the switch reach the budget. There are three user-configurable priority levels:
Low
High
Critical
The default value is “Low” for all ports. Within these levels, priority is according to port
number: the lower the port number, the higher the priority.

4. Verification Steps
The following steps can be used to verify correct system operation:
Connect IP Telephones and IP Softphone to the switches. Verify the telephones can get
IP addresses from a DHCP server, register properly, and calls can be placed.
Make calls call between different telephones and verify that voice quality is good.
Make conference calls between different telephones and verify the voice quality is good.
5. Conclusion
These Application Notes provide configuration steps for Avaya C360 Multilayer Stackable
Switches. The procedures to configure VLAN, 802.1Q Tagging, QoS, IP Routing, Power over
Ethernet and 802.1x Authentication were described in detail. The Avaya C360 Multilayer
Stackable Switch has a rich set of switching and routing functionality. The built-in web
management interface, the QoS feature and the 802.3af PoE capability make the C360 series
switches ideal edge devices for VoIP applications.
