Installing and Setting Up CPE Devices
Preparing for CPE Device Activation
Before customers can activate a CPE device, you must complete the following tasks:
- Specify activation data with Administration Portal or
the API for each CPE device, such as:
The name of the site for the device
The serial number
The activation code (NFX250 devices only)
Installing and Configuring an NFX250 Device
An administrator at the customer’s site installs the NFX250 and performs the initial software configuration for the NFX250. These are straightforward tasks that involve a limited amount of hardware installation, cabling, and software configuration. See the NFX Series documentation for more information.
When the administrator completes the initial configuration process, the NFX250 device obtains a boot image and configuration image from its regional server and becomes operational.

Install the hardware and cable the device.
Power on the device and access the device console.
