    Cabling the Hardware for the Centralized Deployment

    This section describes how to connect cables among the network devices and servers in the Contrail Cloud Platform. See Topology of Cloud CPE Centralized Deployment Model with Contrail Cloud Platform and Contrail Service Orchestration for more information.

    To cable the hardware:

    1. Connect cables from the EX Series switch to the other devices in the network.

      See Table 1 for information about the connections for the EX Series switch.

    2. Connect cables from the QFX Series switch to the other devices in the network.

      See Table 2 for information about the connections for the QFX Series switch.

    3. Connect cables from the MX Series router to the other devices in the network.

      See Table 3 for information about the connections for the MX Series router.
