Service Manager Overview

The JunosE Service Manager application provides authentication, service selection, and service activation and deactivation to subscribers. The application also collects accounting information and statistics, and monitors subscriber and service sessions.

Service Manager supports two client types—RADIUS and CLI. Service Manager starts when it receives a request from a RADIUS or CLI client. For RADIUS clients, RADIUS Access-Accept messages and Change-of-Authorization-Request (COA-Request) messages can create and delete Service Manager subscriber sessions and activate and deactivate service sessions. For CLI clients, CLI commands create and delete the subscriber sessions and activate and deactivate service sessions.

A subscriber’s service is based on a service definition — service definitions can include profiles, policies, and quality of service (QoS) settings that define the scope of a service granted to the subscriber. Service definitions can also specify statistics configurations.

Service Manager provides convenience and flexibility to both service providers and subscribers.
