Description

This command configures a Permanent Virtual Circuit (PVC) on an ATM interface. It isn’t supported on all ATM hardware; more sophisticated ATM hardware tends to use the atm pvc command.

name

Optional. A name to be assigned to this PVC.

vpi/vci

The Virtual Path Identifier and the Virtual Channel Identifier, separated by a slash. If you omit the slash and the vci, it defaults to 0. If vci is 0, vpi cannot be 0, and vice versa.

encap

Optional. The type of encapsulation to use on the channel. Possible values are ilmi, qsaal, and smds. ilmi is used to set up a connection for the Integrated Local Management Interface, and is normally used with the VPI/VCI pair 0/16. qsaal sets up a PVC used for setting up and tearing down SVCs (switched virtual circuits), and is normally used with the VPI/VCI pair 0/5. smds is used only for SMDS networks.
