Configuring Stage-2 Initial Configuration in a Device Template

 

In general, the tenant administrators initiate stage-2 configuration through Customer Portal. However, in certain cases, the same stage-2 configuration needs to be deployed to CPE devices in all sites that are activated using a specific device template. In such cases, you can attach an initial configuration to a stage-2 configuration template of a device template. When a new CPE device in the site is activated using the device template, the initial configuration is automatically deployed to the CPE device.

The list of initial configurations that are supported are:

  • Policies configuration

  • LAN configuration

  • SD-WAN configuration

  • Routing configuration

  • APN configuration

To update an initial configuration for stage-2 configuration template:

  1. Select Resources > Templates > Device Templates.

    The Device Templates page appears.

  2. Select the device template for which you want to configure the stage-2 configuration and then select Edit Device Template > Stage-2 Initial Config.

    The Stage-2 Initial Configuration page appears, listing the existing settings.

  3. Complete the configuration settings according to the guidelines provided in Table 1, Table 2, and Table 3 and Table 4.
  4. Click Ok.
