    Juniper Networks Session and Resource Control (SRC) and PTSP Overview

    The Juniper Networks Session and Resource Control (SRC) environment provides a central administrative point for managing subscribers and their services. The SRC software runs on Juniper Networks C Series Controllers. The SRC software uses the Diameter protocol for communications between the local peer on a Juniper Networks routing platform and the remote SRC peer on a C Series Controller. The local peer is known as PTSP and is part of the AAA application. The remote SRC peer is the service activation engine (SAE); the SAE acts as the controlling agent in the SRC environment.

    The SRC software enables the SAE to activate and deactivate subscriber services (described by SRC policies). The SAE installs or removes policies using a service rule policy template called __svc_rule__. This policy template indicates which policy is applied to a new subscriber session. Additional policies are bound to new sessions; they do not affect existing sessions. Note that policy name must be unique between PPR requests. You can use the same rule name within a single request, but you cannot use the same name again in a separate request.

    Statistics collection that is aggregated on a service rule basis is also shared with the SAE using the Diameter protocol.

    Note: More than one Diameter-based application (function) can run on a router simultaneously.

    Note: When the SRC software downloads PTSP policies, it matches all the application groups defined in the rule of the PTSP policy if the appliation-group-any keyword is used in the policy. The application-group-any keyword is not configured on the router although the application group name is defined in the application identification configuration database on the router to process application-aware access list (AACL) rules for accepting or discarding packets. The keyword is considered as an exception because the application group is defined in the application identification database.
