Hardware Features

There are no new hardware features in CPP Release 17.1R4.

Software Features

CPP Release 17.1R4 provides the following new features:

  • Supports the IS-IS segment routing protocol for both Juniper devices and third-party devices, apart from the OSPF segment routing protocol.

    For Juniper Devices

    • New fields are provided in the Prestage Devices > Manage Device Roles > Device Details page—OSPF Enabled, OSPF SR Enabled, OSPF Loopback, ISIS Enabled, ISIS SR Enabled, and ISIS Loopback. The OSPF Enabled and ISIS Enabled fields indicate if OSPF or IS-IS is enabled on a device. The OSPF SR Enabled and ISIS SR Enabled fields indicate if segment routing (SR) is enabled on OSPF or IS-IS.

      For more information, see Viewing N-PE Devices.

    • A new option Re-sync Routing State is provided in the Network Activate > Prestage Devices > Manage Device Roles page. You can use this option to re-synchronize the routing state of a device.

      For more information, see Prestaging Devices Process Overview and Prerequisites for Prestaging Devices in Network Activate.

  • For Third-Party Devices (Alcatel Devices only)

    • New fields are provided in the CPP > Third-Party Devices > Device Details page—OSPF Enabled, OSPF SR Enabled, OSPF Loopback, ISIS Enabled, ISIS SR Enabled, and ISIS Loopback. These fields indicate whether a given device is OSPF or ISIS capable.

      Use the Synchronize all the devices with OSS option on the CPP > Third-Party Devices > Device Details page to synchronize existing devices with OSS.

      For more information, see Viewing Third-Party Device Details for Cross Provisioning Platform.

  • The CPP > Services page includes a new field Tunnel Type that helps you identify the type of tunnel that a device is using. The tunnel can be of type SR or LDP.

    For more information, see Viewing Cross Provisioning Platform Service Order Details.

  • CPP Release 17.1R4 provides the following new helper functions:

    • checkISISSRState:function (deviceId, vendor)

    • getSessionGroup:function (deviceId, vendor, netw)

    • createSRSDPBinding (fromSiteIP, toSiteIP, pathMtu)

    • createLDPSession (distinguishedName, objectFullName, loopbackB)

    • getISISCoreLoopInterface (siteId, input)

    • getLoopback (vendor, deviceid, svcType)
