    Benefits of a Unified User Interface for Routing and Tunnel Services with Connectivity Services Director

    Junos Space Connectivity Services Director is a compact and optimal application for configuring, deploying, and monitoring Layer 2 and Layer 3 services has been available for purchase and installation as separate software packages, running over a compatible release of Junos Space Network Management Platform.

    The following are the salient benefits and capabilities of the Connectivity Services Director application:

    • Because the Connectivity Services Director GUI uses a cohesive and effective lifecycle management mode of presentation and organization in the banner, the activities that you can perform through various stages and phases of your device and service deployment are easily manageable, optimally administered, and seamlessly handled.

    • A consistent, uniform, consolidated, and streamlined user interface and elegant experience is introduced by using the Service View component in the Connectivity Services Director GUI for defining services.

    • You can install this application to leverage Layer 2, Layer 3, label-switched path (LSP), and class of service (CoS) functionalities on devices in your network (previously available by installing different applications, such as Network Activate, Transport Activate, Sync Design, or OAM Insight), based on your deployment needs and device models to be managed, on a Junos Space JA2500 Appliance or a Junos Space Virtual Appliance that satisfied the hardware requirements.

    • Instead of a different look-and-feel and framework between Network Director and Services Activation Director, a consistent and intuitive next-generation user interface is designed. You do not need to familiarize and adapt yourself to the layout and the design of Services Activation Director by using the Service View from within Connectivity Services Director. If you have already deployed Services Activation Director in your environment, you can derive the advantages and salient functionalities of Service View by migrating to this application.

    • If you are deploying the network management utility in your topology for the first time for routing and tunnel services provisioning, and if you have previously deployed Network Director for the administration of devices, such as EX Series switches and QFX Series switches, you can seamlessly install the Connectivity Services Director application or software package on different appliances to perform Layer 2 through Layer 3 services management on several platforms, such as ACX Series routers, M Series routers, MX Series routers, PTX Series routers, and TCA Series Timing Appliances.

    Note: Network Director cannot be installed on the same system as Connectivity Services Director.
