Unified Administration and Customer Portal Overview
Contrail Service Orchestration supports a unified portal for both service provider users and tenant users and for the services managed and consumed by the administrators and tenants.
The unified portal contains the features of vCPE, uCPE, and SD-WAN for both Administration and Customer portals; enforces role-based access control (RBAC), which prevents tenants from accessing administrator data; and supports different backend authentication methods for service provider users and tenant users.
The unified portal enable service providers to deploy Juniper Networks security features as a virtualized network function (VNF) function either in distributed or centralized mode or in the branch SRX Series device. This VNF provides advanced firewall and Network Address Translation (NAT) management capabilities to end users from a single pane of glass (SPOG) user interface, in a multitenant environment. Service provider administrators are able to manage all phases of the security policy life cycle more quickly and intuitively, from policy creation through deployment.
Firewall and NAT management features include policy configuration such as rule reordering, event viewer for firewall and NAT events, alerts and alarms, logs and dashboard widgets. All features have RBAC enforced, which enables either the OpCo administrator or the tenant administrator to configure policies for the tenant.
The unified portal also provides SD-WAN capabilities with integrated firewall, NAT management, and device management.
