Configuring budget monitoring of data volumes for WAN connections via 3G/4G


This document describes how to configure LANCOM cellular routers for budget monitoring of data volumes for 3G/4G WAN connections.



1) In LANconfig, open the configuration dialog for the LANCOM router and switch to the menu item Configuration -> Management -> Budget.

2) Now click on the Volume budgets button.

3) Select the applicable 3G or 4G peer for volume-budget monitoring and click Edit.

4) In the field Budget, you specify the data volume (in megabytes) which, once exceeded, causes one or more actions to be initiated.

5) In this example, the 3G/4G connection will be disconnected and a notification sent by e-mail.

6) Confirm your entries with OK and write the configuration back to the LANCOM router.

    • When the specified data volume is exceeded, the 3G/4G connection is disconnected and will only be reconnected when the next billing period begins. How to configure a 3G/4G backup connection that automatically reconnects is described in the following Knowledge Base article Database 'SP Knowledgebase', View '03. Edit Documents\by Responsible, Status', Document 'Konfiguration eines Backups für eine WAN-Verbindung welche über UMTS oder LTE betrieben wird'.
    • The budget monitoring and thus the automatic disconnection of the UMTS or LTE connection does not work if no so-called KeepAlive with a hold-short time of 9999 seconds is set up in the configuration of the UMTS or LTE connection.
