New and Changed Features

This section describes the new features and enhancements to existing features in cCPE Selfcare Application Release 1.1.

Application Settings for Selfcare Portal

  • Support for defining the application settings for Selfcare Portal—Starting with cCPE Selfcare Application Release 1.1, you can define application setting for the Selfcare Portal. Application settings enable service providers to control what their cCPE customers can view and manage in the Selfcare Portal. This new capability enables service providers to:
    • Specify the default password and default username prefix for all Selfcare Portal user accounts.
    • Specify which features cCPE customers can configure through the Selfcare Portal including DHCP Server and DHCP Relay, Contrail (SDN) integration, private address management, and SNMP.
    • Subscribe to notifications, which are used to synchronize the Selfcare Portal user interface with changes taking place in the network.
    • Specify controls for SNMP access including: community, authorization level, and view.

Basic NAT

Contrail Integration

  • Support for software-defined networking (SDN)—Starting with cCPE Selfcare Application Release 1.1, service providers can offer network services to their customers that are hosted in the service provider cloud computing environment. The Selfcare Portal acts as a software-defined networking (SDN) orchestrator that enables the MX Series routers, providing the cloud CPE services, to route selected traffic to cloud-based services managed by Juniper Networks Contrail Controller. You define these services as parameterized templates and virtual machine images to be instantiated by Contrail Controller. Your cCPE customers select the services on a self-serve basis and provide the parameters required to direct the traffic they select to their cloud-based services configured with the parameters they specify.

Customer Statistics Monitoring

  • Support for customer statistics monitoring—Starting with cCPE Selfcare Application Release 1.1, the Selfcare Portal provides a summary of the routers and cCPE services you have configured for each cCPE customer. Available statistics include:
    • PE Router Statistics — Displays a list of edge routers running cCPE services. The number of customers, number of sites, and number of access links are shown for each router in the list. From this group box, you can select the router for which you want to view statistics.
    • Detailed Router Data — Displays a list of cCPE customers being serviced by the router selected in the PE Router Statistics group box. The customer name, site name, access link name, and operational status of the access link are displayed for each cCPE customer. From the Detailed Router Data group box, you can select the customer for which you want to view services statistics.
    • Services by Customer —Displays a list of services running on each access link configured for the cCPE customer selected in the Detailed Router Data group box. The router name, site name, access link name, services (indicated by a check mark), and operational status (Up or Down) of the access link are displayed for the selected customer.

    The selections in these group boxes work in a hierarchical fashion; each group box displays more detailed information based on the selection in the previous group box:

    1. Select a particular router from the PE Router Statistics group box.

      The Detailed Router Data group box is updated with a list of customers running cCPE services on the selected router.

    2. From the Detailed Router Data group box, select the customer for which you want to view statistics.

      The Services by Customer group box is updated with a list of services for the selected customer.

    3. After you select the customer, the Services by Customer group box is updated with a list of services for each access link belonging to the selected customer. The information available for each access link includes:
      • Name of the router the access link resides on.
      • Name of the site.
      • Name of the access link.
      • A check mark for each service running on the access link.
      • Operational status (Up or Down) of the access link.

Dashboard Monitoring

  • Support for service provider and business customer dashboards—cCPE Selfcare Application Release 1.1 supports two dashboards for monitoring customers, sites, and access links in the Selfcare Portal:
    • The service provider customer dashboard enables you to view statistics for all cCPE customer sites, access links, and subscribed cCPE services on a single page. You can select a particular customer, site, and access link and view statistics for the associated cCPE services like DHCP server, DHCP relay, and NAT. You can view cCPE services statistics globally, which includes all sites and all access links for a specific customer, or you can view services statistics on an individual access link basis.
    • The customer dashboard enables business customer network administrators to view statistics for all of their cCPE sites and services on a single page. The customer dashboard allows you to view services statistics globally, which includes all of your sites and access links, or you can view services statistics for a specific site and access link.

DHCP Server Advanced Mode and Basic Mode

  • Support for DHCP Advanced and Basic modes—Starting with cCPE Selfcare Application Release 1.1, business customers can configure DHCP server in either Basic or Advanced mode. You can use Basic mode to configure your IP address pool information, for example the pool name, pool range, and primary and secondary DNS servers. Advanced mode includes all Basic mode options as well as more advanced DHCP server options like defining a boot server, name server, WINS server, and static host mapping.

Public IP Address Assignment

  • Support for configuration and management of public IP address pools—Starting with cCPE Selfcare Application Release 1.1, you can configure and manage public IP address pools in the Selfcare Portal. Public IP addresses are used in conjunction with cCPE services such as NAT and firewall. cCPE service providers configure and manage public IP address pools and authorized cCPE business customer network administrators can then allocate addresses from those pools for services like NAT and firewall.

    This new feature needs to be configured along with the Services PIC Resource Allocation feature to implement the Basic NAT feature.

    [See Understanding How to Manage Public IP Address Pools Using the Selfcare Portal]

Services PIC Resource Allocation

  • Support for allocating services physical interface cards (PIC) resources—To provide advanced cCPE services like NAT, service providers must install and use services line cards in your MX Series routers to provide adaptive services interfaces, which allow you to coordinate multiple services on a single PIC by configuring a set of services and applications. Starting with cCPE Selfcare Application Release 1.1, you can use the Selfcare Portal to define blocks of service interface units or logical unit numbers on the PICs in your MX Series router. The block of logical unit numbers define the range of units reserved for Selfcare Portal use.

    This new feature needs to be configured along with the Public IP Address Assignment feature to implement the Basic NAT feature.

Stateless Firewall Filters

  • Support for configuring and managing stateless firewall filters to control traffic on access links—Starting with cCPE Selfcare Application Release 1.1, you can use the Selfcare Portal to define stateless firewall filters to enhance security through the use of packet filtering. Packet filtering enables you to inspect incoming or outgoing packets and then perform the actions you specify on packets that match the criteria you specify.

    Stateless firewall filters support a rich set of packet-matching criteria that you can use to match to specific traffic and perform specific actions, such as forwarding or dropping packets that match the criteria you specify. You can configure firewall filters to protect devices in your local network or to allow access to the Internet.
