Creating a Point-to-Multipoint E-LAN Service Definition

 

This procedure provides the steps to create a definition for a point-to-multipoint Ethernet service. Point-to-multipoint services are also known as hub and spoke services.

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 point-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.

  2. Click Next to save the information. Continue with Specifying Advanced 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 E-LAN Service Definition wizard.

  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 an E-LAN service without selecting the Include check box for Disable tunnel services parameter, the E-LAN 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 UNI or Site Settings for Point-to-Multipoint E-LAN 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 E-LAN 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 E-LAN Services

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

    Logical Interface Encapsulation

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

    Traffic Type

    This drop-down 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.

    • Normalize to vlan none—To preserve no VLAN IDs across the network.

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

    • Normalize to QinQ tags—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.

    Traffic Type

    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.

    Transport vlan list Limits the traffic across the network to a specific list of VLANs.

    If you select this option, the service provisioner is prompted for the VLAN-ID list when creating a service order based on this service definition. You need to specify only the Outer Tag Protocol ID.

    Note: Make sure to select 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.

    • Normalize to vlan none—To preserve no VLAN IDs across the network.

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

    • Normalize to QinQ tags—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.
