Choosing a Predefined Service Definition or Creating a New Service Definition

 

The Connectivity Services Director software provides a set of predefined service definitions for E-Line services, multipoint-to-multipoint E-LAN (full mesh) services, and point-to-multipoint E-LAN (hub and spoke) services. These service definitions are capable of providing the basis for most of the service orders your organization will need to create. In case these predefined service definitions are not adequate for all your needs, however, the Connectivity Services Director software enables you to create service definitions of your own.

The following topics review the predefined service definitions and provide instructions on creating your own.

Choosing a Predefined Service Definition

Table 1 lists the predefined service definitions that Junos Space provides for E-Line services that use LDP in the network core. Table 2 lists the predefined service definitions for multipoint-to-multipoint (full mesh) services. Table 3 lists the predefined service definitions for point-to-multipoint (hub and spoke) services.

Many of the service attributes can be edited in the service order, which allows the flexibility for creating most of the service orders you will need from these predefined service definitions.

To view the contents of a predefined service definition, follow these steps:

  1. in the Network Services > Connectivity view pane, select Service Design > Manage Service Definitions.

    The Manage Service Definitions page appears and shows all the service definitions present on your system.

  2. Double click the predefined service definition you want to review.

    Details of the service definition replace the Manage Service Definitions page.

    Tip

    If predefined and customized service definitions both exist on your system, you can easily find the predefined ones in the service definition inventory page.

  3. When you are done reviewing the service definition, click Back to return to the Manage Service Definitions page.

For detailed descriptions of each of the predefined service definitions and their service attributes, see Predefined Service Definitions

Creating an E-Line Service Definition

Use this procedure to create a definition for an E-Line 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 E-Line 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 an E-Line service definition, complete these tasks, in the order shown:

Specifying General Information

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 Definition 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 definition.

To specify the general information for an E-Line service definition:

  1. From the View selector, select Service View. The workspaces that are applicable to routing and tunnel services are displayed.
  2. Click the Build icon in the Service View of the Connectivity Services Director banner. The functionalities that you can configure in this mode are displayed in the task pane.
  3. in the Network Services > Connectivity view pane, select Service Design > Manage Service Definitions.
    • Select E-Line to create an E-Line service definition.

    • Select E-LAN to create an E-LAN service definition.
