    Creating a Multipoint-to-Multipoint VPLS Service Definition

    This procedure provides the steps to create a definition for a multipoint-to-multipoint VPLS 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.

    When 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 multipoint-to-multipoint Ethernet 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 multipoint-to-multipoint Ethernet service definition, complete these tasks, in the order shown. As you finish a section and click Next, the attributes from the current window are saved and the next window in the sequence appears.

    Specifying General Information for Multipoint-to-Multipoint VPLS Service Definitions

    To specify the general information for a multipoint-to-multipoint service definition, in the Network Services > Connectivity view pane, select Service Design > Manage Service Definitions > New > VPLS Service Definition.

    The General window appears.

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

    1. Fill in the fields on the General window.

      Field

      Action

      Service Definition Name

      Type a name for the service definition.

      Service type

      Select Multipoint-to-Multipoint Ethernet (VPLS)

      Signaling

      Select a signaling type:

      • BGP— If BGP signaling is selected, the following fields are available in the Connectivity section of the General Settings page:

        • Auto-pick Route Target

        • Auto-pick Route Distinguisher

      • LDP—If LDP signaling is selected, the following fields are available in the Connectivity section of the General Settings page:

      Note: You cannot edit the Signaling type in the service order.

      Description (Optional)

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

      Range: 0 through 200 characters. Space 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.

      Enable L3 Access

      Select this check box to create the link into Layer 3. If this check box is selected, the available Ethernet option in the Site Settings window are:

      • dot1q

      • qinq

      Enable Static PW Labels

      Select this check box to enable a pseudowire connection by configuring static values.

      Note: The Enable Static PW Labels check box is enabled only when the signaling type is LDP.

      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.

      BGP Connectivity Settings—This section is displayed if you select the signaling type as BGP.

      Auto-pick Route Target

      To allow the service provisioner to override the MAC settings, select Editable in Service Order.

    2. Click Next to save the information and continue with UNI or site settings.

    Specifying Advanced Settings

    In this step, you can specify the parameters that define advanced connectivity between sites across the service provider network. Thes settings can be configured in the Advanced settings section of the General Settings page of the Create VPLS Service Definition wizard.

    To specify advanced settings:

    1. Fill in the fields as indicated in the table.

      Advanced Settings—This section enables you to specify the parameters that define advanced connectivity between sites across the service provider network

      Include

      Select the Include check box for each advanced setting that you want to include in the service definition.

      Note: If you select any advanced parameters for a service definition, you must also select the Include check box for the Disable tunnel services parameter, and select or clear the Disable tunnel services check box.

      For MX Series devices, if you deploy a VPLS service without selecting the Include check box for Disable tunnel services parameter, the VPLS service is down. As a work around, you can push the configuration to each PE device for the service by running the following command:

      root@test_device# set chassis fpc 0 pic 1 tunnel-services bandwidth 1g

      Disable Tunnel Services

      Enable or disable tunnel-services to specify that traffic for particular VPLS routing instances be forwarded to specific virtual tunnel (VT) interfaces.

      • To enable tunnel-services, clear the Disable Tunnel Services check box.

      • To disable tunnel-services, select the Disable Tunnel Services check box (default).

      Disable Local Switching

      Enable or disable local switching. In local switching mode, you can terminate multiple Layer 2 circuit pseudowires at a single VPLS mesh group:

      • To enable local switching across the network, clear the Disable Local Switching check box.

      • To disable local switching across the network, select the Disable Local Switching check box (default).

      Fast Reroute-Priority

      In this drop-down list, specify the reroute priority for a VPLS routing instance:

      • HIGH—Set the fast reroute priority for a VPLS routing instance to high. During a fast reroute event, the router repairs next hops for high-priority VPLS routing instances first.

      • MEDIUM—Set the fast reroute priority for a VPLS routing instance to medium. During a fast reroute event, the router repairs next hops for medium-priority VPLS instances after high-priority VPLS routing instances but before low-priority VPLS routing instances.

      • LOW—Set the fast reroute priority for a VPLS routing instance to low, which is the default. During a fast reroute event, the router repairs next hops for low-priority VPLS routing instances last.

      Label Block Size

      Configure the label block size for VPLS labels by using one of the following values.

      • 2—Allocate the label blocks in increments of 2. Use this setting for a VPLS domain that has only two sites with no future expansion plans.

      • 4—Allocate the label blocks in increments of 4.

      • 8 —Allocate the label blocks in increments of 8. This is the default.

      • 16—Allocate the label blocks in increments of 16. A label block size of 16 enables you to minimize the number of routes in the VPLS domain. Use this setting only if the number of routes is the primary concern.

      Note: This field is unavailable if the Signaling type is LDP and the Auto discovery check box is enabled.

      Connectivity type

      Select a connection-type to specify when a VPLS connection is taken down, depending on whether the interface for the VPLS routing instance is customer-facing or integrated routing and bridging (IRB):

      • ce—Require that for the VPLS connection to be up, the customer-facing interface for the VPLS routing instance must also be up. If the customer-facing interface fails, the VPLS connection is taken down. This is the default.

      • irb—Allow a VPLS connection to remain up so long as an IRB interface is configured for the VPLS routing instance.

      Note: This field is unavailable if the Signaling type is LDP and the Auto discovery is enabled.

      Editable in Service Order

      By default, each advanced setting that you include in the service definition can be edited in the service order. To prevent the service provisioner from overriding an advanced setting in the service order, clear the Editable in Service Order check box.

    2. Click Next to define the UNI or site parameters. Alternatively, click Back to return to the previous page of the wizard; else click Cancel to discard the changes.
    3. 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. Click Back to return to the previous page of the wizard; else click Cancel to discard the changes.
    4. After you complete reviewing the settings, click Finish to complete the service definition creation.

    Specifying Site Settings for Multipoint-to-Multipoint VPLS Service Definitions

    In this step, you provide the UNI attributes for this service definition. The attributes you set depend on the type of interface you are using in this VPLS service definition. The following interface types are supported:

    • ports

    • 802.1Q interfaces

    • Q-in-Q interfaces

    • asymmetric interface

    UNI or Site Settings for Port-to-Port Interfaces in VPLS Services

    The Site Settings window provides four expanding or collapsing panels: Traffic Treatment, Interface Settings, MTU Settings, and Bandwidth Settings.


    To specify the UNI Settings for Port-to-Port interfaces:

    1. Fill in the fields on the Site Settings window.

      Field

      Action

      PE-CE UNI Settings- Ethernet Encapsulation

      VLAN Tagging

      Select port-port from the list.

      The VLAN tagging option you choose determines the other options you can select and specify on the page.

      Editable in Service Order

      To allow the service provisioner to override the VLAN tagging or Ethernet option attribute, select the check box.

      Physical Interface Encapsulation

      Select ethernet-vpls, the only valid physical interface encapsulation method allowed for port-to-port services.

      Logical Interface Encapsulation

      You cannot select a choice in this field because it is not relevant to port-to-port services.

      Customer VLANs

      This drop-down list is disabled for port-to-port services. For port-to-port services, all traffic is always transported.

      VLAN Normalization

      Select a value:

      • Normalize to VLAN all—To preserve customer VLAN IDs (and customer QoS priorities) across the network.

        Note: For services that transport a range of VLANs, you must select VLAN Normalization to all. You cannot transport a range of VLANs without normalization.

      • Normalized VLAN none—To preserve no VLAN IDs across the network.

      • Not normalized—If VLAN IDs are to be provided manually and are required to match.

      • Normalized to Dot1q—To transport only single-tagged frames across the network core. All port, dot1q , and Q-in-Q traffic is transported across the network

      • Normalized to QinQ—To transport only double-tagged frames across the network core. All port, dot1q , and Q-in-Q traffic is transported across the network.

      • Normalization not required—To specify no normalization for port-to-port services

        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.

      For more information about VLAN normalization, see Junos Space Layer 2 Services Overview.

      For information about VLAN manipulation, see Understanding VLAN Manipulation (Normalization and VLAN Mapping) on Ethernet Services.

      Auto Pick VLAN ID

      This check box is disabled because in port-to-port services, all traffic and all VLANs on one port are transported to all other ports.

      Editable in Service Order

      To allow the service provisioner to override the VLAN ID setting, select the check box. This check box is not applicable for port-to-port services.

      Default Interface MTU (Bytes)

      The default MTU value is 1522 bytes.

      MTU Range for manual-config(Bytes)

      Logical Interface Encapsulation

      Constrained by your selection in the Physical IF encapsulation box. If you selected the recommended physical encapsulation mode of flexible-ethernet-services, then your only option is to select vlan-vpls for the logical encapsulation method.

      Customer VLANs

      Single VLAN is the only option for 802.1Q interface types.

      Select Transport single vlan to transport the traffic for a specific VLAN across the network. When you select this option, the service provisioner is prompted for the VLAN-ID when creating a service order based on this service definition. You need to specify the Outer Tag protocol ID.

      Select Transport VLAN range to limit the traffic across the network to a specific range of VLANs.

      If you select this option, the service provisioner is prompted for the VLAN-ID range when creating a service order based on this service definition.

      Note: Make sure to check Editable in Service Order if you want the service provisioner to be able to override this setting.

      VLAN Normalization

      Select a value:

      • Normalize to VLAN all—To preserve customer VLAN IDs (and customer QoS priorities) across the network.

        Note: For services that transport a range of VLANs, you must select VLAN Normalization to all. You cannot transport a range of VLANs without normalization.

      • Normalized VLAN none—To preserve no VLAN IDs across the network.

      • Not normalized—If VLAN IDs are to be provided manually and are required to match.

      • Normalized to Dot1q—To transport only single-tagged frames across the network core. All port, dot1q , and Q-in-Q traffic is transported across the network

      • Normalized to QinQ—To transport only double-tagged frames across the network core. All port, dot1q , and Q-in-Q traffic is transported across the network.

      • Normalization not required—To specify no normalization for port-to-port services

        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.

      For more information about VLAN normalization, see Junos Space Layer 2 Services Overview.

      For information about VLAN manipulation, see Understanding VLAN Manipulation (Normalization and VLAN Mapping) on Ethernet Services.

      Auto Pick VLAN ID

      Indicate how the VLAN ID is determined. By default, this check box is disabled.

      • Clear this check box to allow the service provider to specify the VLAN ID. This option is normally used when no VLAN normalization is applied. Specify the VLAN ID range in VLAN range for manual input.

        Note: Make sure to check Editable in Service Order if you want the service provisioner to be able to override this setting.

      • Select this check box when VLAN normalization is applied. Specify the VLAN ID pool in VLAN range for auto-pick.

        Note: Make sure to check Editable in Service Order if you want the service provisioner to be able to override this setting.

      Note: When the range of VLAN IDs that are automatically assigned by the system (with the auto-pick option enabled during the creation of a service definition) is less than or greater than the range of VLAN IDs that are manually specified (with the manual selection option enabled during the creation of a service definition), the following conditions apply during the creation of a service order with the Editable in Service Order check box selected during service definition creation:

      • If you create a service order with the auto-pick option enabled, the VLAN ID is selected from the auto-pick range, and the value is displayed in the VLAN range for manual input field. If you attempt to change the VLAN ID manually, the value is restricted to the manually configured range.

      • If you create a service order with the auto-pick option disabled, the VLAN ID is selected from the manually configured range, and the value is displayed in the VLAN range for manual input field. If you attempt to change the VLAN ID manually, the value is restricted to the manually configured range.

      VLAN range for auto-pick

      Specify the VLAN ID pool.

      Range: 1 through 4094

      Constrained by your selection in the Physical IF encapsulation box. If you selected the recommended physical encapsulation mode of flexible-ethernet-services, then your only option is to select vlan-vpls for the logical encapsulation method.

      Customer VLANs

      Transport all traffic Transports the traffic from all VLANs across the network. When you select this option, the service provisioner is prompted for the VLAN-ID when creating a service order based on this service definition. You need to specify only the Outer Tag protocol ID.

      Transport single vlan Transports traffic for a specific VLAN across the network. You need to specify both Outer Tag protocol ID and Inner Tag protocol ID.

      Transport VLAN range Limits the traffic across the network to a specific range of VLANs.

      If you select this option, the service provisioner is prompted for the VLAN-ID range when creating a service order based on this service definition. You need to specify both Outer Tag protocol ID and Inner Tag protocol ID.

      Note: Make sure to check Editable in Service Order if you want the service provisioner to be able to override this setting.

      VLAN Normalization

      Select a value:

      • Normalize to VLAN all—To preserve customer VLAN IDs (and customer QoS priorities) across the network.

        Note: For services that transport a range of VLANs, you must select VLAN Normalization to all. You cannot transport a range of VLANs without normalization.

      • Normalized VLAN none—To preserve no VLAN IDs across the network.

      • Not normalized—If VLAN IDs are to be provided manually and are required to match.

      • Normalized to Dot1q—To transport only single-tagged frames across the network core. All port, dot1q , and Q-in-Q traffic is transported across the network

      • Normalized to QinQ—To transport only double-tagged frames across the network core. All port, dot1q , and Q-in-Q traffic is transported across the network.

      • Normalization not required—To specify no normalization for port-to-port services

        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.

      For more information about VLAN normalization, see Junos Space Layer 2 Services Overview.

      For information about VLAN manipulation, see Understanding VLAN Manipulation (Normalization and VLAN Mapping) on Ethernet Services.

      Auto Pick VLAN ID

      Indicate how the VLAN ID is determined. By default, this check box is disabled.

      • Clear this check box to allow the service provider to specify the VLAN ID. This option is normally used when no VLAN normalization is applied. Specify the VLAN ID range in VLAN range for manual input.

        Note: Make sure to check Editable in Service Order if you want the service provisioner to be able to override this setting.

      • Select this check box when VLAN normalization is applied. Specify the VLAN ID pool in VLAN range for auto-pick.

        Note: Make sure to check Editable in Service Order if you want the service provisioner to be able to override this setting.

      Note: When the range of VLAN IDs that are automatically assigned by the system (with the auto-pick option enabled during the creation of a service definition) is less than or greater than the range of VLAN IDs that are manually specified (with the manual selection option enabled during the creation of a service definition), the following conditions apply during the creation of a service order with the Editable in Service Order check box selected during service definition creation:

      • If you create a service order with the auto-pick option enabled, the VLAN ID is selected from the auto-pick range, and the value is displayed in the VLAN range for manual input field. If you attempt to change the VLAN ID manually, the value is restricted to the manually configured range.

      • If you create a service order with the auto-pick option disabled, the VLAN ID is selected from the manually configured range, and the value is displayed in the VLAN range for manual input field. If you attempt to change the VLAN ID manually, the value is restricted to the manually configured range.

      VLAN range for auto-pick:

      Specify the VLAN ID pool.

      Range: 1 through 4094

      VLAN range for manual input

      Specify the VLAN ID range.

      Range: 1 through 4094

      Outer Tag Protocol ID

      Select the outer tag protocol ID if the Customer traffic type is Transport single VLAN:

      • 0x88a8

      • 0x8100

      • 0x9100

      Note: For an interface, you must configure a physical port with the possible Tag Protocol Identifiers (TPID) either manually or through a template. Otherwise, the service creation fails for all TPIDs except 0x8100. To configure the TPIDs manually, use the following commands:

      set interfaces ae0 aggregated-ether-options ethernet-switch-profile tag-protocol-id 0x9100
      set interfaces ae0 aggregated-ether-options ethernet-switch-profile tag-protocol-id 0x88a8
      set interfaces ae0 aggregated-ether-options ethernet-switch-profile tag-protocol-id 0x8100

      Inner Tag Protocol ID

      Select the inner tag protocol ID:

      • 0x88a8

      • 0x8100

      • 0x9100

      Note: You cannot specify the Inner Tag protocol ID if the Customer traffic type is Transport single VLAN.

      Editable in Service Order

      To allow the service provisioner to override the outer and inner tag protocol IDs, select the check boxes for those options.
