Table 1: Fields on the Service Overview Page
View a summary about the service’s capabilities.
The network service designer provides this summary.
View the state of the network service:

View the ingress point—the point at which packets enter the service.
View the egress point—the point at which packets exit the service.
One or more VNFs
Click to view settings for the VNF.
The service designer can configure the VNF settings in Network Service Designer and the administrative user can configure the VNF settings in Customer Portal.
Best Practice: The network service designer configures settings for the virtual machine (VM) in which the virtualized network function (VNF) resides and the administrative user configures settings for the service, such as policies. The service designer can also configure a few example settings for the service. These example settings should be generic and not network-specific.
