    Setting Up a Centralized Deployment

    After you have installed the Cloud CPE solution and published network services with Network Service Designer, you use Administration Portal to set up a centralized deployment. The following workflow describes the process.

    1. Create the POPs and associated resources.
      • You must create a VIM for each POP.
      • You can add an MX Series router as a physical network element (PNE) to provide a Layer 3 routing service to customer sites through use of virtual routing and forwarding (VRF) instances.
      • You add the Junos Space element management system (EMS) if you use a VNF that requires this EMS.
    2. Create customers and their sites.

      You can create two types of sites:

      • Branch sites—Configure each branch site in the customer’s network.
      • Data Center—Configure one data center for the customer only if users access the Internet through the corporate VPN .
    3. If you configured a PNE, then associate the PNE with the site and configure a VRF for each customer site.
    4. Allocate network services to customers.

    For detailed information about using Administration Portal, see the Contrail Service Orchestration User Guide.
