You must upload VNFs to the Contrail Cloud Platform for the centralized deployment after you install the Cloud CPE solution. You upload the VNF images for the distributed deployment through Administration Portal or API calls.
You can use these VNFs in service chains and configure some settings for VNFs for a service chain in Network Service Designer. You can then view those configuration settings for a network service in Administration Portal. Customers can also configure some settings for the VNFs in their network services through Customer Portal. VNF configurations that customers specify in Customer Portal override VNF configurations that the person who designs network services specifies in Network Service Designer.
