Adding Provider Hub Sites for SD-WAN Deployment
A provider hub site represents an automation endpoint that is part of a data center or POP that is owned by the service provider. The provider hub site is connected to multiple spoke sites using the overlay connections. Provider hubs sites are logical entities in a multi-tenant device (provider hub device). You add a provider hub site from the Sites page. This page describes how to add a provider hub site for a tenant.
To add a provider hub site:
- Select Resources > Site Management.
The Sites page appears.
- Click Add and select Add Provider Hub.
The Add Provider Hub for Tenant-Name page appears.
- Complete the configuration settings according to the guidelines
provided in Table 1.
Fields marked with an asterisk (*) are mandatory.

The newly added provider hub site is displayed on the Sites page.
Table 1: Fields on the Provider Hub for Tenant-Name Page
Select the name of the point of presence (POP) for the site. A network POP is a location at which a service provider instantiates a network function, such as a virtualized network function (VNF).
Hub Device Name
Select the provider hub device for the hub site. The provider hub devices with DATA_ONLY capability and DATA_AND_OAM capability are listed.
Note: You need not onboard a provider hub with OAM_ONLY capability. By default, the provider hub with OAM_ONLY capability will be imported.
