    Setting Up a Distributed Deployment

    Note: You must send an activation code to the customer for each NFX250 device. The customer’s administrative user must provide this code during the NFX250 installation and configuration process. The Juniper Networks Redirect Service uses this code to authenticate the device.

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

    1. Add data for the POPs and provider edge (PE) router.
    2. Upload images for devices used in the deployment, such as the vSRX gateway and the NFX250 device, to the central activation server.
    3. Configure activation data for CPE devices.
    4. Upload VNF images.
    5. Upload licenses.
    6. Install licenses.

      You install licenses with the license tool or API.

    7. Create customers and their sites.
    8. Allocate network services to customers.

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

    When an administrator installs and configures the NFX250 devices at a customer site, the device automatically interacts with the Redirect Service. The Redirect Service authenticates the device and sends it information about it’s assigned regional server. The device then obtains a boot image and configuration image from the regional server and uses the images to become operational.

    Customers activate SRX Series Services Gateways and vSRX instances acting as CPE devices through Customer Portal.
