    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. Upload licenses.
    3. Install licenses.

      You install licenses with the API or license tool.

    4. 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.
    5. If you configured a PNE, then associate the PNE with the site and configure a VRF for each customer site.
    6. Allocate network services to customers.

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