MAP-E Network Settings
MAP-E for Tenants
Click the toggle button to enable the OpCo’s tenants to configure the Mapping of Address and Port with Encapsulation (MAP-E) functionality for their branch sites with NFX150 as the CPE. MAP-E supports transporting IPv4 packets across an IPv6 network by using IPv4-in-IPv6 encapsulation.
If you enable this toggle button, you must select a manufacturer code to be associated with the OpCo user.
Note: MAP-E is compliant only with the Japan Network Enabler (JPNE) standards.
From the list of manufacturer codes assigned to Juniper Networks, select a manufacturer code to be associated with the OpCo user.
If a tenant belonging to the OpCo enables MAP-E for a branch site with NFX150 as the CPE device, the device uses this manufacturer code to obtain the MAP-E rules from the MAP-E rule server.
