Connectivity Services Director

Overview

Junos® Space Connectivity Services Director gives service providers and enterprises the power to quickly design, provision, and deliver new MPLS and Carrier Ethernet services across their networks for quick rollouts and lower costs.

Connectivity Services Director equips network staff with full lifecycle management of connectivity services. Included among these services are legacy TDM and ATM, and IP/MPLS-based Layer 2/Layer 3 (L2/L3) VPN, virtual private LAN service (VPLS), and Carrier Ethernet. Other tasks that Connectivity Services Director performs include automated service discovery, resource management, service design, error-free provisioning, troubleshooting, and monitoring. It also helps you decommission these services though a simple, intuitive GUI.

Running on the Junos Space Management Platform, Connectivity Services Director uses all the features and functions that are available through Junos Space, including schema-based configuration management, clustering, and geo-redundancy.

Key functions of Connectivity Services Director include:

  • Design, provisioning, activation, and validation of RSVP-signaled label-switched paths (LSPs)

  • Design, provisioning, activation, and validation of L2/L3 VPNs across MPLS and Carrier Ethernet networks.

  • Design and provisioning of quality-of-service (QoS) profiles for services.

  • Service troubleshooting, service statistics, and performance measurement using the ITU Y.1731 specification.

  • Chassis views for configuration and services monitoring.

In addition to providing a GUI for service management, Connectivity Services Director supports a northbound Representational State Transfer (RESTful)-based API that allows network providers to completely automate service provisioning and effectively position their networks for future SDN and NFV architectures.

Features

  • Predefined, best-practice service designs for TDM and ATM, Carrier Ethernet, and MPLS services can be repurposed to speed time-to-market.
  • Workflow-driven point-and-click provisioning allows operators to easily select endpoints for activating a customer VPN.
  • Pre- and post-configuration validation ensures effective service provisioning and troubleshooting for improved service assurance.
  • Fault and performance management lets network operators manage service-level agreements (SLAs) and periodic health checks for services.
  • Northbound APIs for service orchestration and automation facilitate integration with operations and business support system (OSS/BSS) platforms and creation of customer portals.
  • Optional synchronization management automates the provisioning of complex synchronization architectures based on Precision Time Protocol (PTP) and Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE).
  • Customized QoS profiles for bandwidth management facilitate QoS configuration, improving service deliveries for certain types of network traffic.
  • Service validation and SLA monitoring enable network providers to guarantee SLAs after a service has been provisioned.
  • As an inherent benefit of the Junos Space platform, automated MPLS and network resource management enable fast, efficient, and accurate service provisioning for rapid time-to-revenue.
