Choosing a Predefined Service Definition or Creating a New Service Definition

 

The Network Activate software provides a set of predefined service definitions for point-to-point services, multipoint-to-multipoint (full mesh) services, and point-to-multipoint (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 Network Activate 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 Ethernet point-to-point 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 Activate task 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 a Point-to-Point Ethernet Service Definition

Use this procedure to create a definition for a point-to-point VPN 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 point-to-point VPN services on the network.

The pages 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 a point-to-point service definition, complete these tasks, in the order shown:

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 page appears.
  2. Fill in the fields in the General page.

    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 page, 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.

Specifying UNI Settings

In this step, you provide the UNI service attributes for this service definition. The attributes you set depend on whether you are setting attributes for a port, an 802.1Q interface, a Q-in-Q interface, or a flexible VLAN tagging:

Creating a Multipoint-to-Multipoint VPLS Service Definition

This procedure provides the steps to create a definition for a multipoint-to-multipoint VPLS 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.

When 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 multipoint-to-multipoint Ethernet services on the network.

The pages 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 a multipoint-to-multipoint Ethernet service definition, complete these tasks, in the order shown. As you finish a section and click Next, the attributes from the current page are saved and the next page in the sequence appears.

  1. Fill in the fields as indicated in the table.

    Field

    Action

    Include

    Select the Include check box for each advanced setting that you want to include in the service definition.

    Note: If you select any advanced parameters for a service definition, you must also select the Include check box for the Disable tunnel services parameter, and select or clear the Disable tunnel services check box.

    For MX Series devices, if you deploy a VPLS service without selecting the Include check box for Disable tunnel services parameter, the VPLS service is down. As a work around, you can push the configuration to each PE device for the service by running the following command:

    root@test_device# set chassis fpc 0 pic 1 tunnel-services bandwidth 1g

    Disable tunnel services

    Enable or disable tunnel-services to specify that traffic for particular VPLS routing instances be forwarded to specific virtual tunnel (VT) interfaces.

    • To enable tunnel-services, clear the Disable tunnel-services check box.

    • To disable tunnel-services, select the Disable tunnel-services check box (default).

    Disable local-switching

    Enable or disable local switching. In local switching mode, you can terminate multiple Layer 2 circuit pseudowires at a single VPLS mesh group:

    • To enable local switching across the network, clear the Disable local-switching check box.

    • To disable local switching across the network, select the Disable local-switching check box (default).

    fast-reroute-priority

    In the fast-reroute-priority, specify the reroute priority for a VPLS routing instance:

    • HIGH—Set the fast reroute priority for a VPLS routing instance to high. During a fast reroute event, the router repairs next hops for high-priority VPLS routing instances first.

    • MEDIUM—Set the fast reroute priority for a VPLS routing instance to medium. During a fast reroute event, the router repairs next hops for medium-priority VPLS instances after high-priority VPLS routing instances but before low-priority VPLS routing instances.

    • LOW—Set the fast reroute priority for a VPLS routing instance to low, which is the default. During a fast reroute event, the router repairs next hops for low-priority VPLS routing instances last.

    Label block size

    Configure the label block size for VPLS labels by using one of the following values.

    • 2—Allocate the label blocks in increments of 2. Use this setting for a VPLS domain that has only two sites with no future expansion plans.

    • 4—Allocate the label blocks in increments of 4.

    • 8 —Allocate the label blocks in increments of 8. This is the default.

    • 16—Allocate the label blocks in increments of 16. A label block size of 16 enables you to minimize the number of routes in the VPLS domain. Use this setting only if the number of routes is the primary concern.

    Note: This field is unavailable if the Signaling type is LDP and the Auto discovery is enabled.

    Connectivity type

    Select a connection-type to specify when a VPLS connection is taken down, depending on whether the interface for the VPLS routing instance is customer-facing or integrated routing and bridging (IRB):

    • ce—Require that for the VPLS connection to be up, the customer-facing interface for the VPLS routing instance must also be up. If the customer-facing interface fails, the VPLS connection is taken down. This is the default.

    • irb—Allow a VPLS connection to remain up so long as an IRB interface is configured for the VPLS routing instance.

    Note: This field is unavailable if the Signaling type is LDP and the Auto discovery is enabled.

    Editable in Service Order

    By default, each advanced setting that you include in the service definition can be edited in the service order. To prevent the service provisioner from overriding an advanced setting in the service order, clear the Editable in Service Order check box.

  2. Click Finish to save the advanced settings.

    The service definition is complete.

Creating a Point-to-Multipoint VPLS Service Definition

This procedure provides the steps to create a definition for a point-to-multipoint Ethernet service. Point-to-multipoint services are also known as hub and spoke services.

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.

When 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 point-to-multipoint Ethernet services on the network.

The pages 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.

    Field

    Action

    Include

    Select the Include check box for each advanced setting that you want to include in the service definition.

    Note: If you select any advanced parameters for a service definition, you must also select the Include check box for the Disable tunnel services parameter, and select or clear the Disable tunnel services check box.

    For MX Series devices, if you deploy a VPLS service without selecting the Include check box for Disable tunnel services parameter, the VPLS service is down. As a work around, you can push the configuration to each PE device for the service by running the following command:

    root@test_device# set chassis fpc 0 pic 1 tunnel-services bandwidth 1g

    Disable tunnel services

    Enable or disable tunnel-services to specify that traffic for particular VPLS routing instances be forwarded to specific virtual tunnel (VT) interfaces.

    • To enable tunnel-services, clear the Disable tunnel-services check box.

    • To disable tunnel-services, select the Disable tunnel-services check box (default).

    Disable local-switching

    Enable or disable local switching. In local switching mode, you can terminate multiple Layer 2 circuit pseudowires at a single VPLS mesh group:

    • To enable local switching across the network, clear the Disable local-switching check box.

    • To disable local switching across the network, select the Disable local-switching check box (default).

    fast-reroute-priority

    In the fast-reroute-priority, specify the reroute priority for a VPLS routing instance:

    • HIGH—Set the fast reroute priority for a VPLS routing instance to high. During a fast reroute event, the router repairs next hops for high-priority VPLS routing instances first.

    • MEDIUM—Set the fast reroute priority for a VPLS routing instance to medium. During a fast reroute event, the router repairs next hops for medium-priority VPLS instances after high-priority VPLS routing instances but before low-priority VPLS routing instances.

    • LOW—Set the fast reroute priority for a VPLS routing instance to low, which is the default. During a fast reroute event, the router repairs next hops for low-priority VPLS routing instances last.

    Label block size

    Configure the label block size for VPLS labels by using one of the following values.

    • 2—Allocate the label blocks in increments of 2. Use this setting for a VPLS domain that has only two sites with no future expansion plans.

    • 4—Allocate the label blocks in increments of 4.

    • 8 —Allocate the label blocks in increments of 8. This is the default.

    • 16—Allocate the label blocks in increments of 16. A label block size of 16 enables you to minimize the number of routes in the VPLS domain. Use this setting only if the number of routes is the primary concern.

    Note: This field is unavailable if the Signaling type is LDP and the Auto discovery is enabled.

    Connectivity type

    Select a connection-type to specify when a VPLS connection is taken down, depending on whether the interface for the VPLS routing instance is customer-facing or integrated routing and bridging (IRB):

    • ce—Require that for the VPLS connection to be up, the customer-facing interface for the VPLS routing instance must also be up. If the customer-facing interface fails, the VPLS connection is taken down. This is the default.

    • irb—Allow a VPLS connection to remain up so long as an IRB interface is configured for the VPLS routing instance.

    Note: This field is unavailable if the Signaling type is LDP and the Auto discovery is enabled.

    Editable in Service Order

    By default, each advanced setting that you include in the service definition can be edited in the service order. To prevent the service provisioner from overriding an advanced setting in the service order, clear the Editable in Service Order check box.

  2. Click Finish to save the advanced settings.

    The service definition is complete.
