SCE MGSCP - global BW limits

Unanswered Question
Apr 13th, 2010


Does anyone have an experience with implementing SCE MGSCP topology and enforcing global BW limits for particular protocols (eg. P2P)?

As far as I understood, each SCE within MGSCP cluster has the same PQB file applied, but each SCE enforces defined BW limits independently of ach other SCE device in the cluster.

It means that on the global level, if we have for example 2 SCE devices in the MGSCP cluster, and P2P BW limit of 1Gbps defined in the PQB file, we will potentially have 2Gbps of P2P traffic allowed?

Just wondering is my understanding right, and how would you recommend to deal with this problem?

Best regards,


I have this problem too.

If your MGSCP configurations are correct you are loadbalancing users on multiple SCE's. This means that any given subscriber will always hit the same SCE again and again in the MGSCP topology. So given the fact that each SCE has the same config any user will hit only 1 SCE.

If 1 user is hitting more than 1 SCE for a specific flow then your configuration is wrong and you will have issues with quota and reporting as well.
