    Creating a Point-to-Point Service Order

    To create a point-to-point service order, complete the following tasks in order:

    1. Selecting the Service Type

    2. Entering General Settings Information

    3. Specifying the Connectivity

    4. Specifying QoS Settings

    5. Specifying OAM Settings

    6. Specifying Endpoint Information

    7. Specifying Template Settings

    8. Reviewing the Configured Settings

    9. Specifying Connectivity and Endpoint Information for Managing VLANs

    10. Deploying and Monitoring the Progress of the New Service

    Selecting the Service Type

    A wizard is available to create a service order in an intuitive and easily-navigable format. The settings that you can configure in the service order are organized in separate pages of the wizard, which you can launch by clicking the appropriate buttons at the top of the Create a Service Order page. Alternatively, you can proceed to the corresponding setting-related pages by clicking the Back and Next buttons at any point in the wizard during the creation of the service order.

    To select the service type as point-to-point to base the new service order:

    1. Select Service View from the View Selector. The workspaces that are applicable to routing and tunnel services are displayed.
    2. From the Junos Space user interface, click the Deploy icon in the Connectivity Services Director banner. The functionalities that you can configure in this mode are displayed in the task pane.
    3. From the View pane, click the plus sign (+) to expand the tree and select the type of service.
    4. From the Tasks pane, select Service Provisioning > Deploy Services.

      The Manage Network Services page is displayed in the top half of the right pane, which displays all of the configured services. The Manage Service Orders page is displayed in the bottom half of the right pane, which displays all of the service orders corresponding to a service.

    5. From the Manage Network Services page, click the New icon at the top of the lower half of the page that displays previously created service orders. The Select Service Type dialog box appears.
    6. Select Point-to-Point to create a point-to-point service order.

      The General/Connectivity Settings panel appears initially in the right panel, as shown in the example.

      Note: In the service order creation wizard for point-to-point services, the search function has been enhanced to enable you to easily sort and filter the parameters that are of interest and relevance for the services you want to configure. The Choose Customer dialog box that is displayed when you click Select beside the Customer field contains the Search box, which enables you to perform a search on all of the columns. The search utility that is present in the Choose Service Definition dialog box that is displayed when you click Select beside the Service Definition field enables you to search by Name, Created by, and Signaling columns; search utility is not supported for other columns in the dialog box. The search box that is present in the Choose Endpoints dialog box when you click Select beside the PE Device and UNI Interface fields enables search across all the columns displayed in the dialog box. For any string-based search (which shows strings that match any part of the text you enter in the search box), only the Name, Platform, and OS Version columns are supported. For exact string-based search (which shows strings that exactly match the text you enter in the search box), the IPAddress, State, and Manage State columns are supported.

    Entering General Settings Information

    To enter general parameters related to a service order in the General Settings box of the General/Connectivity Settings page of the wizard:

    1. In the Name field, enter a unique name for the service.

      The service order name can consist of only letters, numbers, and underscores.

      Note: The name you specify for a point-to-point service order becomes the routing-instance name in the device configuration when you deploy the service. Consequently, you cannot use any Juniper Networks keywords, for example, “bgp” or “vpls”, as the name of a service order.

    2. From the Service Definition field, click Select to choose the service definition you want to base your service order on. The Choose Service Definition inventory page displays a view of only those published service definitions designed to work with the type of services you need.

      Based on the fields or parameters that you defined in the service definition to be enabled for modification in the service order, the corresponding fields are available for editing. The fields that are disabled for modification in the service order can only be edited in the service definition.

    3. Select the check box beside the service definition that you want to associate with the service order, and click OK.
    4. Click View to open a popup dialog box that displays the details of the selected service definition. The service definition properties, such as the name, signaling type (LDP or BGP), service type (point-to-point psuedowire, ATM, or TDM), are displayed. The interface-specific attributes, such as rate-limiting details, encapsulation, and VLAN tags, are also displayed in the dialog box. Close the dialog box to return to the service order creation wizard.

      If a template is attached to the service definition on which the service order is based, you can invoke the template editor from the Template page of the wizard.

    5. In the Customer field, select the customer requesting the service.

      If the customer is not in the list, you must add the customer to the database before proceeding. See Adding a New Customer.

    6. In the Description field, enter a description of the service that you want to appear in the request or in a service instance created from the request.

      This description is displayed in the Manage Service Order page.

    7. Configure connectivity settings. See Specifying the Connectivity.

    Specifying the Connectivity

    In the Connectivity Settings box of the General/Connectivity Settings page of the wizard, specify VCID and MTU information.

    1. Specify the VCID. This is an integer that uniquely identifies the virtual circuit that the service will use.

      The VCID can be either set automatically by the Junos Space software, or it can be set manually by the service provisioner in the service order. The service definition can force the system to pick the VCID, force the service provisioner to pick the VCID, or allow the service provisioner to override the settings in the service definition.

      This field is displayed only if the selected definition’s signaling type is LDP. You cannot edit this field if you have not selected Editable in Service Order in the service definition.

      We recommend allocating the VCID automatically; however, service providers with their own systems for allocating VCIDs can choose the manual setting.

      In the previous example, by default, the system picks a VCID from its pool automatically, but allows the service provisioner to override this value in the service order. Clear the check box to override the service definition setting. The form expands to include an additional field for entering the VCID manually.

    2. Specify the MTU for the connection across the network.

      The service definition can constrain the MTU to a specific value or allow the service provisioner to override it in the service order. In this example, the service definition sets the MTU, but allows the service provisioner to change the value.

      When you advance to the next step in creating your service order, your new connectivity settings appear under the Connectivity image in the main graphic and new general information is added to the text above the cloud. If you have incomplete or invalid information in the General/Connectivity Settings panel, a warning icon appears next to the cloud image.

    3. Select the Enable MC LAG check box if you want the following configuration to be pushed to the selected endpoint.

      set protocols l2circuit neighbor x.x.x.x interface interface name pseudowire-status-tlv

      Note: This check box is available only for an LDP-based point-to-point service order with PW Resilency enabled. The Interface type must be Ethernet.

      For more information on multichassis link aggregation groups (MC-LAGs), see Multi-Chassis Link Aggregation Group Overview.

    4. Specify the Route Distinguisher value.

      Range: 1.1.1.1:1 through 255.255.255.254:65535, or 1:1 through 65535:4294967295

      This field is displayed only if the selected definition’s signaling type is BGP. You cannot edit this field if you have not selected the Editable in Service Order check box in the service definition.

    5. To specify the Route Target, clear the Auto pick Route Target check box.

      Range: 1.1.1.1:1 through 255.255.255.254:65535, or 1:1 through 65535:4294967295

      This field is displayed only if the selected definition’s signaling type is BGP. You cannot edit this field if you have not selected the Editable in Service Order check box in the service definition.

    6. The VLAN normalization displays the information based on the option you have selected in the service definition.

    7. If VLAN normalization is Normalize to Dot1q tag, specify the VLAN Tag to stack.

      Default: 1

      Range: 1 through 4094

    8. If VLAN normalization is Normalize to QinQ tags, specify the Normalize – Outer VLAN Tag and Normalize – Inner VLAN Tag fields.

      Default: 1

      Range: 1 through 4094

    9. To provide endpoint information for the first endpoint, click the Endpoint A button or click Next.

      The Endpoint Settings form appears.

    10. If you have enabled QoS, configure QoS settings. See Specifying QoS Settings.

      If QoS is not enabled, configure endpoint settings. See Specifying Endpoint Information.

    Specifying QoS Settings

    Note: You can specify QoS parameters for a point-to-point service only in the service definition. This section explains the QoS attributes that can be defined or modified in a service definition. These settings cannot be modified in the service order.

    If QoS is enabled on the service definition, configure the QoS Settings of the General/Connectivity Settings panel.


    1. In the QoS profile field, select a profile from the list.

      The QoS profile list displays the QoS profiles that are currently configured in the Manage CoS Profiles page of the Connectivity Services Director application.

      A QoS profile classifies traffic into defined service groups to provide the special treatment of traffic across the network service.

    2. Configure endpoint information. See Specifying Endpoint Information.

    Specifying OAM Settings

    By default, OAM is enabled on the service definition. Enter the following information in the OAM Settings of the General Settings panel:

    1. In the OAM Profile field, select a profile from the list.

      Note: For OAM Settings, if you specify a CFM profile (for example, a CFM action profile with remote MEP), or an SLA-Iterator profile, first you must ensure that the profile is attached to the same device upon which you intend to deploy the P2P service order. If the profile is not previously attached (using the OAM Insight application), it is not on the device to support the service order.

      To remove a previously associated CFM definition or OAM profile from a service definition, click the Detach button next to the OAM Profile field to remove the association. To associate a new OAM profile, you must dissociate the existing OAM profile and attach a fresh OAM profile. Detaching an OAM profile is enabled when you modify a service or service order.

      Note: For Juniper Networks PTX3000 Packet Transport Routers, if you attach a CFM Definition to the service order, the CFM session operates for MEPs in either the Up or Down direction when the service is deployed.

    2. Click CFM Details beside the OAM Profile field to view the profile configuration details in a dialog box.
    3. Configure endpoint information. See Specifying Endpoint Information.

    Specifying Endpoint Information


    If a service template is attached to the service definition, a link to that template is listed in the Template page of the creation of service order wizard. The service templates settings are same for both the endpoints. For instructions on working with service templates in service orders, see Creating a Service Order Based on a Service Definition with a Template.

    Some of the fields differ from one interface type to another and also differ depending on permissions assigned in the service definition.

    To specify endpoint information:

    1. In the PE device field, select the N-PE device you want to use for the first endpoint.

      If you are unsure about which PE device to choose, go to the Prestaging Devices workspace landing page, which shows capacity information about UNIs on PE devices. You must pick a device that has available UNIs.

      This step is required for all service orders.

      You can configure the primary endpoint device as an unmanaged device. With the primary endpoint as an unmanaged device, the following combinations of primary and backup endpoints are supported:

      • Primary (endpoint Z) as an unmanaged device and no backup (endpoint Z) device.

      • Primary (endpoint Z) as an unmanaged device and backup (endpoint Z) as a managed device.

      The following combinations are not supported:

      • Primary (endpoint Z) as an unmanaged device and backup (endpoint Z) as an unmanaged device.

      • Primary (endpoint Z) as a managed device and backup (endpoint Z) as an unmanaged device.

      You cannot configure the backup endpoint Z as an unmanaged device using Connectivity Services Director. P2P Resiliency cannot be configured if any one of the endpoints is unmanaged. A validation is performed for the supported combinations of endpoints.

      Note: If this endpoint is a third-party device, select Unmanaged device from the PE Device field list. You need to specify only the IP Address and Unmanaged Interface. For more information, see Provisioning a Single-Ended Point-to-Point Service.

    2. In the UNI interface field, select a UNI.

      The list includes all UNIs available on the selected device.

      This step is mandatory for all service orders.

      If you have selected the Enable Multi Segment Pseudowire check box in the service definition, the UNI interface of the second endpoint lists the interworking (iw) interfaces only.

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

      You can enter the description of the UNI interface in the UNI description field.

    3. Specify the stitching unit.

      Default: 0

      Range: 0 through 255

      Note: This field is displayed only in the second endpoint. You must have selected the Enable Multi Segment Pseudowire check box in the service definition.

    4. In the Traffic type field, designate whether you want the service to transport all traffic, a single VLAN, or multiple VLANs.

      Although this field is present for all service orders, the value is predetermined for some types of interfaces. For example, a port-to-port interface always transports all traffic. Moreover, for interface types that do support multiple traffic types, you can select this value only if the service definition allows you to do so.

      If you are allowed to select this field, depending on the interface type, you can choose from the following values:

      • Transport single VLAN

      • Transport VLAN range

      • Transport all traffic

      Note: The Physical IF encapsulation and Logical IF encapsulation fields are not selectable. These values are set in the service definition.

      The Vlan Range for manual input field displays the VLAN range that is specified in the service definition.

      If the Ethernet option is do1q or qinq, and the VLAN selection is Transport single vlan type, the Vlan Range for manual input range is used for validation of manually entered VLAN.

      If the Ethernet option is qinq, and the VLAN selection is Transport vlan range type, the Vlan Range for manual input range is used for validation of manually entered outer VLAN.

      If the Ethernet option is do1q, and the VLAN selection is Transport vlan range type, the Vlan Range for manual input range is used for validation of manually entered customer's VLAN start and VLAN end.

    5. In the C-VLAN ID field (or VLAN ID field), enter the customer’s VLAN ID.

      This field is mandatory for service orders that transport a single customer VLAN. The ID is provided by the customer.

    6. In the C-Vlan Start and C-Vlan End fields, specify the beginning and end of the range of customer VLANs that you want the service to transport.

      This field is mandatory for all services that transport a specific range of customer VLANs. These VLAN IDs are provided by the customer.

    7. Select the Auto pick VLAN ID check box to have the system choose a service VLAN ID automatically.

      This field is present only for interface types that provide double tagging; that is, only for Q-in-Q endpoint interface types. If this field is not set, then you must enter a service VLAN ID manually.

    8. In the VLAN ID field, specify the service VLAN ID that you want be used to provide the outer tag for the service.

      This field is present only for interface types that provide double tagging, and only if the Auto pick VLAN ID check box is not selected.

    9. Specify whether the Autopick UNIT ID can be selected automatically or manually.
      • To assign the UNIT ID automatically, select the Autopick UNIT ID check box.

      • To assign the UNIT ID manually, clear the Autopick UNIT ID check box.

        The window expands to include the UNIT ID field. In the UNIT ID field, type a value.

        Range: 1 through 1073741823

      Note: You can edit this field only if you have selected the Editable in Service Order check box for the VLAN ID selection in the service definition.

    10. In the MTU (Bytes) field, specify the maximum transmission unit size for the UNI.

      This field is present in all service orders. However, you can set this field only if the service definition allows you to do so.

    11. If you selected the Static pseudowire check box in the selected service definition, you need to specify the Outgoing label for the static pseudowire.

      Range: 1000000 through 1048575

      In case of multi-segment pseudowire, you have to specify a new outgoing label for the second segment. The outgoing label for the second segment is not prepopulated from the first segment.

      Note: You must manually compare the encapsulation, TDM bit rate, and control word of the router with the remote peer router and ensure that these parameters match; otherwise the static pseudowire might not work.

    12. In the Bandwidth (Mbps) field, select a value from the list to limit the bandwidth of the service you are creating.

      This field is present only if bandwidth limiting is allowed by the service definition, and is configurable in the service order only if the service definition allows you to do so.

      When you click another graphic element in the main graphic area, the selected device name and interface name appear beneath the endpoint image in the main graphic.

    13. If you have enabled the Enable PW access to L3 VPN network check box in the selected service definition, fill in the following fields in PW Stitching:
      • L3 routing instance name—Specify the name of the Layer 3 routing instance.

      • Autopick interface IP—If this field is enabled, specify IP block size and IP address pool; otherwise specify the Interface IP address.

      • Autopick peer unit—To select the logical system unit number automatically, select the check box; otherwise specify the Peer unit name.

      Note: These fields are available only if you have selected an LT interface in the UNI interface.

    14. If you have enabled the Enable PW Resiliency check box in the selected service definition, fill in the following fields in the Backup settings and Resiliency settings:
      • Enable

      • PE device

      • UNI interface

      • MTU (Bytes)

      • LSP tunnel name

      • Revert time (sec)

      • Switch Over Delay (sec)

      For more information of pseudowire redundancy, see Redundant Pseudowires for Layer 2 Circuits and VPLS.

    15. Select the Enable send-oam config check box to enable the send-oam command. You can enable or disable this check box even in the Modify Service page.
    16. To provide endpoint information for the second endpoint, click the Endpoint Z button (or click Next).

      The Endpoint Settings form appears in the right panel for the second endpoint. Complete this form as for the first endpoint (repeat Step 1 through Step 18).

    17. Click Next to proceed to the last step of the wizard, which is to examine the specified service attributes and submit the changes. Alternatively, click Back to navigate to the previous step of the wizard.

    Specifying Template Settings

    The Template Settings page of the service order creation and modification wizards enables you to associate service templates with a point-to-point, VPLS, and Layer 3 VPN service order. You can apply only the templates that are previously configured in a service definition with the corresponding service order. The Template Settings page is available in the service order wizard only if the service definition that you selected to apply to the service order contains a service template. Otherwise, the Template Settings page is not displayed in the service order wizard. You can perform template operations for all endpoints in a service order.

    If you defined a service template as the default service template, it is attached to the endpoint by default. You have the flexibility to create and provision a dynamic attribute in a service template. You can mark an attribute of a service template as dynamic, and you can obtain the values for these dynamic attributes from a specific device. To create a dynamic attribute, you must first mark an attribute of a service template as dynamic and then specify the device XPath for the dynamic attribute.

    The Template Settings page is displayed before the Review page, which is the final step of the service order wizard.

    In the Service Settings page of the Select Service Definition field of the service order creation wizard, you can double-click a service definition name displayed in the table to view the details of the definition in a popup dialog box. You can use this information to determine if the service definition is appropriate for your deployment needs. To filter and sort the display of service templates, enter the name of the template as a match criterion in the Search box and click the Search icon. The page refreshes to display only the template names that match with the search term. You can use the paging controls to navigate across multiple pages of templates as necessary.

    All the tasks that you can perform with service templates are presented in the Template Settings page. The page is divided into three panes. The top half of the page displays a table of selected endpoints. All the endpoints or UNIs that you selected in the preceding pages of the service order wizard are displayed in this table. You can configure the template pertaining to only one endpoint at a point in time. If the selected endpoints (in previous pages of the wizard) contained a manually-entered unit number, that number is displayed in the table of selected endpoints. Otherwise, the Auto-pick label is displayed.

    The lower half of the page is divided into two panes. The left pane displays the template selection table for the endpoint you selected. All the templates associated with the service definition are displayed. You can add and delete templates using the template selection table. The right pane displays all the parameters that you can modify for a selected service template. All such editable paramters are displayed in a consolidated form of a configuration page. This pane is displayed after you select a template. If any configuration parameter in template is set as a service-specific value, such attributes are not displayed in this pane.

    To associate a service template with a service order:

    1. Click Add to include a service template for the endpoint. A dialog box is displayed with the list of service templates associated with the service definition that is used to create the service order. The templates selected in this dialog box are displayed in the Template Selection table for the specified endpoint. Such templates are considered to be attached to that endpoint.

      If you specified a template as a default template during the service definition creation, the template is displayed by default in the template selection table. You can associate non-default templates with the serviceo rder by clicking the Add button.

    2. Click the link in the template name to open the Template Details dialog box. The template settings are displayed in the popup dialog box. For the selected template, the Configuration Page is displayed in the lower-right pane of the Template Settings page.
    3. Modify any template-specific service components as necessary.
    4. Click Save to submit the changes.
    5. Select a template from the Template Selection table, and click Delete to remove the template from being associated with the service order for a particular endpoint.

    Reviewing the Configured Settings

    The Review page of the service definition or service order creation and modification wizards enable you to view and evaluate the service parameters and components you configured in preceding steps or pages of the wizard. This page provides a comprehensive, single-page view of all the service elements configured in the different pages of the wizard. You can either click the buttons corresponding to the various settings at the top of the wizard page to directly traverse to the page you want to modify or click the navigation buttons at the bottom of the wizard page to go to the different pages of the wizard.

    Note: On the Review page, in the Service Templates section, the names of the service templates with which the service definition is associated are displayed. The Default Service Template column indicates whether the attached template is the default template.

    1. Click Review to view the defined parameters. You can examine and modify the created service order parameters. Alternatively, click the corresponding buttons at the top of the wizard page to navigate to the specific pages pertain to the settings you want to modify.
    2. Click Edit next to the section that contains the parameter you want to modify. You are navigated to the corresponding page of the wizard in which the parameter settings are defined.
    3. Click Finish to save the service definition or service order.
    4. Click Back to return to the previous page of the wizard; else click Cancel to discard the changes.

      The service order inventory window appears.

    Specifying Connectivity and Endpoint Information for Managing VLANs

    The Connectivity Services Director application provides greater flexibility for provisioning VLANs for Point-to-Point service orders by extending the VLAN normalization options.

    You can create logical interfaces that define both the Outer-VLAN-tag-to-stack protocol ID and Inner-VLAN-tag-to-stack protocol ID. The following illustration shows the General/Connectivity window. The Connectivity Settings panel displays the Outer-VLAN-tag-to-stack and Inner-VLAN-tag-to-stack parameters.


    Connectivity Services Director now enables you to manually select a value for the Outer VLAN tag to stack and Inner VLAN tag to stack parameters for a service that specifies the qinq Ethernet option.

    The following illustration displays the service order Connectivity Settings based upon a service definition that set the VLAN normalization parameter to Normalize to Dot1q tag.

    For service orders that are based on service definitions that set the Ethernet option to dot1q or qinq, the Unit ID parameter appears in the Logical IF Settings panel in the service order Endpoint Settings window.

    Deploying and Monitoring the Progress of the New Service

    To deploy the new service:

    1. Perform one of the following actions in the Deploy mode of the Service View of Connectivity Services Director:
      • To deploy the service immediately, select Deploy now, then click OK.

      • To deploy the service later, select Schedule deployment, select a date and time, then click OK.

        The time field specifies the time kept by the server, but in the time zone of the client.

    2. To monitor the progress and status of the deployment, use the Jobs workspace.
