    Specifying General Information

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

    1. In the Network Activate task pane, select Service Design > Manage Service Definitions > Create P2P Service Definition. The General settings window appears.
    2. Fill in the fields in the General window.

      Field

      Action

      Name

      Enter a name for the service definition.

      Service type

      By default, the service type is Point-to-Point Pseudowire.

      Signaling

      Select a signaling type:

      • BGP
      • LDP

      You cannot edit the Signaling type in the service order.

      Note: If the signaling type is BGP, the Static pseudowire and the Enable PW access to L3 VPN network check boxes are not available. You cannot edit the Signaling type in the service order.

      Comments (Optional)

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

      Range: 0 through 200 characters. Spaces and special characters are allowed.

      Enable QoS

      When you enable QoS in the service definition, you must 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.

      Interface type

      Select the interface type:

      • Ethernet
      • TDM
      • ATM

      Static pseudowire

      To enable static pseudowire, select the Static pseudowire check box. This check box is disabled if the signaling type is BGP.

      Enable PW access to L3 VPN network

      To enable the pseudowire access to L3 VPN network, select the Enable PW access to L3 VPN network check box. This check box is disabled if the signaling type is BGP, or if you have selected the interface type as TDM/ATM.

      If you select this check box, the Enable Multi Segment Pseudowire check box is disabled.

      Enable Multi Segment Pseudowire

      Select this check box to enable multi-segment pseudowire.

      If you select this check box, the Enable PW access to L3 VPN network check box is disabled.

      A multi-segment pseudowire (MS-PW) is a static or dynamically configured set of two or more contiguous pseudowire segments that behave and function as a single point-to-point pseudowire. Each end of an MS-PW, by definition, terminates on a T-PE.

      Note: The number of pseudowire segments that you can stitch is limited to two.

      For more information on point-to-point pseudowire stitching, see Stitching Two Point-to-Point Pseudowires.

      Enable PW Resiliency

      To enable the pseudowire resiliency, select the Enable PW Resiliency check box. For more information on pseudowire redundancy, see Redundant Pseudowires for Layer 2 Circuits and VPLS.

      Decouple Service Status From Port Status

      By default, all the events are saved in the OpenNMS database. To isolate the events related to an interface in the OpenNMS, select the Decouple Service Status From Port Status check box.

      Note: When you select this check box, only the pseudowire traps are monitored, not the jnxVpnIfVpn traps.

      Service Template

      (Optional) To include a service template for the service, select a service template from the Service Template list.

      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.

      Threshold alarm profile

      If you intend to run performance tests on services based on this service definition, select a TCA Profile.

    3. Click Next to save the information. Continue with Specifying UNI Settings.
