    Creating a Point-to-Point Ethernet Service Definition

    Use this procedure to create a definition for a point-to-point VPN service. The standard service definitions that came with your initial software installation are designed to be appropriate for most requirements. You can also create a customized service definition—for example, to set different bandwidth limits on the service than those offered in the standard service definitions.

    After the new service definition is complete and published, network operators or service provisioners can use the completed service definition as a base for creating and then activating point-to-point VPN services on the network.

    The windows appear in the order stated. You can, however, perform these steps in any order by accessing them through the task list in the right panel. If the panel is not visible, click the snap tool on the right side of the main display area.

    To create a point-to-point service definition, complete these tasks, in the order shown:

    1. Specifying General Information

    2. Specifying UNI Settings

    3. Specifying Connectivity Information When Signaling Is LDP

    4. Specifying Connectivity Information When Signaling Is BGP

    Specifying General Information

    To specify the general information for a point-to-point Ethernet service definition:

    1. In the Build mode of the Network Services > Connectivity task pane, select Service Design > Manage Service Definitions > New > P2P Service Definition. The General settings window of the Create Point-to-Point Service Definition wizard appears.
    2. Fill in the fields in the General window.

      Field

      Action

      Name

      Enter a name for the service definition.

      Service type

      By default, the service type is Point-to-Point Pseudowire.

      Signaling

      Select a signaling type:

      • BGP

      • LDP

      You cannot edit the Signaling type in the service order.

      Note: If the signaling type is BGP, the Static pseudowire and the Enable PW access to L3 VPN network check boxes are not available. You cannot edit the Signaling type in the service order.

      Description (Optional)

      Enter a brief description or other comment that you want to appear in the Service Definition table.

      Range: 0 through 200 characters. Spaces and special characters are allowed.

      Enable QoS

      When you enable QoS in the service definition, you can specify a QoS profile in the service order to classify traffic into defined service groups to provide the special treatment of traffic across the network service. For example, voice traffic can be sent across certain links, and data traffic can use other links.

      QoS settings can be defined in service templates and attached to a service order to classify traffic into defined service groups to provide the special treatment of traffic across the network service. For example, voice traffic can be sent across certain links, and data traffic can use other links.

      Interface type

      Select the interface type:

      • Ethernet

      • TDM

      • ATM

      Static pseudowire

      To enable static pseudowire, select the Static pseudowire check box. This check box is disabled if the signaling type is BGP.

      Enable PW access to L3 VPN network

      To enable the pseudowire access to L3 VPN network, select the Enable PW access to L3 VPN network check box. This check box is disabled if the signaling type is BGP, or if you have selected the interface type as TDM/ATM.

      If you select this check box, the Enable Multi Segment Pseudowire check box is disabled.

      Enable Multi Segment Pseudowire

      Select this check box to enable multi-segment pseudowire.

      If you select this check box, the Enable PW access to L3 VPN network check box is disabled.

      A multi-segment pseudowire (MS-PW) is a static or dynamically configured set of two or more contiguous pseudowire segments that behave and function as a single point-to-point pseudowire. Each end of an MS-PW, by definition, terminates on a T-PE.

      Note: The number of pseudowire segments that you can stitch is limited to two.

      For more information on point-to-point pseudowire stitching, see Stitching Two Point-to-Point Pseudowires.

      Enable PW Resiliency

      To enable the pseudowire resiliency, select the Enable PW Resiliency check box. For more information on pseudowire redundancy, see Redundant Pseudowires for Layer 2 Circuits and VPLS.

      Decouple Service Status From Port Status

      By default, all the events are saved in the OpenNMS database. To isolate the events related to an interface in the OpenNMS, select the Decouple Service Status From Port Status check box.

      Note: When you select this check box, only the pseudowire traps are monitored, and not the interface-related traps (such as jnxVpnIfUp or jnxVpnIfDown).

      Service Template

      (Optional) To include a service template for the service, click the Add icon or plus sign (+) to select a service template from the Service Template list. The list of available service templates is displayed. Select the check box beside the template you want and click OK. You are returned to the General Settings page.

      The selected service template appears in the Default Service Template field.

      You can select one or more service templates as the default service template. By default, the default service templates are attached to the endpoints.

      Note: You cannot add or delete a service template while creating a service order.

      The remaining service templates on the Service Template list are termed as optional service templates. You can attach the optional service templates to the endpoints on a need basis.

      In the View Service Definition Details window, the value for the default service template in the Default Service Template column is True.

      For instructions on creating a service template, see Creating a Service Template.

      Threshold alarm profile

      If you intend to run performance tests on services based on this service definition, select a TCA Profile.

    3. Click Next to save the information. You can proceed to Specifying UNI Settings.

    Specifying UNI Settings

    In this step, you provide the UNI service attributes for this service definition. The attributes you set depend on whether you are setting attributes for a port, an 802.1Q interface, a Q-in-Q interface, or a flexible VLAN tagging:

      Default MTU (Bytes)

      You can specify an MTU value in this field. The default value for MTU is 1522.

      To see the permitted range for the MTU value, select the Editable in Service Order check box. The MTU range is 1522 through 9192.

      MTU Range (Bytes)

      If you select the check box Editable in Service Order, you can specify a value range for MTU (in bytes). The permitted range for MTU is 1522 through 9192.

      Note: Ultimately, the system establishes the MTU by multiplying the value you specify in the Default MTU (Bytes) field by the value you specify for MTU Factor.

      Calculation of Burst-Size

      Calculate Burst Size

      Select the preferred option for calculating the burst size:

      • MTU Based

        If you select the option MTU Based, you can specify a value for MTU Factor in the range 1 through 1087902.

        The default value for MTU Factor is 10.

      • Line Rate Based

        If you select the option Line Rate Based, you can specify a value for Burst Period in the range 1 through 7450 milliseconds.

        The default value for Burst Period is 1.

      Note: The Calculate Burst Size list is enabled only when you select the Enable rate limiting check box.

    Specifying Connectivity Information When Signaling Is LDP

    The fields displayed in the Connectivity window depend on the Signaling type (LDP or BGP) that you selected in the General settings window.

    To specify connectivity between sites across the network when signaling is LDP:

    1. Fill in the fields in the Connectivity window.

      Field

      Action

      VC ID selection

      The VC ID selection is available only if the Signaling type is LDP.

      In the VC ID selection box, specify how you want the VC ID to be chosen during service order creation:

      • To allow the service provisioner to enter the VC ID, choose Select manually.

      • To cause the Junos Space software to assign a VC ID automatically from the VC ID pool, select Auto pick.

      To allow the service provisioner to override the setting in the VC ID box, select Editable in Service Order.

      Default MTU

      In the Default MTU box, specify the MTU across the service provider network.

      To allow the service provisioner to override the MTU setting, select Editable in Service Order. In the MTU range, enter the highest and lowest MTU that the service provisioner can enter.

      Revert time (sec)

      This field is available if you selected the Enable PW Resiliency check box and if the Signaling is LDP in the General settings.

      Revert time (sec)—Revert time for redundant Layer 2 circuits and VPLS pseudowires.

      Default: 5 seconds

      Range: 0 through 65,535 seconds

      Switch Over Delay (sec)

      This field is available if you selected the Enable PW Resiliency check box and if the Signaling is LDP, in the General settings.

      Switch Over Delay (sec)—Delay to wait before the backup pseudowire takes over.

      Default: 0 second

      Range: 0 through 180 seconds

      VLAN Normalization

      The options available in the VLAN normalization are based on the value set for the Ethernet interface.

      Outgoing label selection

      This field is available if you selected the Static pseudowire check box in the General settings. By default, the outgoing label selection is limited to manual.

      The following table presents the available VLAN normalization options:

      Ethernet Option

      Customer Traffic Type

      VLAN Normalization

      port-port

      N/A

      Normalization not required

      Normalization to Dot1q tag

      Normalization to QinQ tags

      Note: Starting with Release 1.0R2, when you newly install Connectivity Services Director, if you select the option to not require normalization in a service definition, the auto-pick option for VLAN IDs and the option to edit the auto-pick behavior in service order are disabled in the service definition. When you create a service order by associating with that service definition, you need to manually enter the VLAN IDs for the interfaces and cannot use the auto-pick functionality. This same behavior also applies to default service templates in which if you select the normalization-not-required functionality, the auto-pick option for VLAN IDs is disabled.
