Cross Provisioning Platform Installation Overview
Cross Provisioning Platform (CPP) is an extension of the Network Activate application. It provides a real-time operations support system (OSS) for creating and deploying services across multivendor devices. With Cross Provisioning Platform, you can:
Provision services between Juniper Networks devices and Nokia devices.
Provision services across Juniper Networks devices and NEC’s iPASOLINK devices.
Provision services across Juniper Networks devices and Canoga Perkins network interface devices (NIDs).
Cross Provisioning Platform uses the Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) APIs to communicate with Nokia 5620 Service Aware Manager (SAM) and Representational State Transfer (REST) APIs to communicate with CanogaView operations support systems (OSS).
Creating services for Cross Provisioning Platform requires the coordination of tasks performed in several areas of expertise including script design, system administration, and service provisioning. When you create a Cross Provisioning Platform service definition, you can attach scripts designed for the service.
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—For details about setting up a JA2500 appliance for Cross Provisioning Platform, see Setting Up a JA2500 Appliance for Cross Provisioning Platform.
Junos Space Virtual Appliance—For details about setting up a Junos Space virtual appliance for Cross Provisioning Platform, see Setting up a Junos Space Virtual Appliance for Cross Provisioning Platform.
For information about installing Junos Space virtual appliances on a VMware ESX server, VMware ESXi server, or KVM server, see the Junos Space Virtual Appliance Installation and Configuration Guide.
This document is intended for network operators and administrators who install, configure, and manage the network security infrastructure.
