Cross Provisioning Platform Installation Overview

Junos Space Cross Provisioning Platform (CPP) provides a real-time operations support system (OSS) for creating and deploying services across multivendor devices. The CPP software manages the interaction of Service Activation Director (SAD) with a module called the Alcatel-Lucent 5620 Service Aware Manager.

With CPP, you can:

  • Provision services between Juniper Networks devices and Alcatel-Lucent devices
  • Manage SAD services and Alcatel-Lucent 5620 Service Aware Manager services
  • Use REST APIs to manage services through SAD
  • Use the SOAP API to manage Alcatel-Lucent 5620 Service Aware Manager

This application is built to run on Junos Space Network Management Platform—an open, secure, and scalable software platform that allows customers, partners, and developers to build and deploy simple and smart applications to manage and analyze network element data and optimize network infrastructure and operations management.

This Quick Start Guide describes how you can quickly set up a Junos Space Appliance in a single-node configuration, install CPP, and bring your devices under CPP management.

You can install Cross Provisioning Platform in one of the following hardware configurations:

  • A Juniper Networks JA2500 Junos Space Hardware Appliance—The JA2500 appliance is a dedicated hardware device that provides the computing power and specific requirements to run CPP as an application.

    The JA2500 appliance has a 2-U, rack-mountable chassis with dimensions 17.81 in. x 17.31 in. x 3.5 in. (45.2 cm x 44 cm x 8.89 cm). The JA2500 appliance is shipped with a single AC power supply module; an additional power supply module can be installed in the power supply slot in the rear panel of the appliance. The JA2500 appliance can also be powered on by using one or two DC power supply modules. The appliance has six 1-TB hard drives arranged in a RAID 10 configuration. Two externally accessible cooling fans provide the required airflow and cooling for the appliance.

    For details about the JA2500 appliance and instructions for installation, see Installing Juniper Networks Junos Space JA2500 Appliance.

  • Junos Space Virtual Appliance—The Junos Space Virtual Appliance consists of preconfigured Junos Space Network Management Platform software with a built-in operating system and application stack that is easy to deploy, manage, and maintain. A Junos Space Virtual Appliance includes the same software and provides all the functionality available in a Junos Space physical appliance. However, you must deploy the virtual appliance on the VMware ESX or ESXi server, which provides a CPU, hard disk, RAM, and a network controller, but requires installation of an operating system and applications to become fully functional.

    For information about installing Junos Space appliances in a fabric configuration and installing Junos Space Virtual Appliance on a VMware ESX or ESXi server, see Junos Space Virtual Appliance.

Follow all safety warnings and precautions as specified in General Safety Guidelines and Warnings.

The following sections describe the basic steps to install and configure CPP on a Junos Space JA2500 Appliance:
