Cloud CPE Selfcare Application for MX Series Routers Release Notes, Release 1.0

Introduction

These release notes describe known issues related to:

  • Junos®, Release 13.2R1 running on MX Series routers deploying cCPE services
  • cCPE Selfcare Application Release 1.0, running on the Junos Space Network Management Platform

For general information on Junos OS and the Junos Space Network Management Platform, see the product documentation page on the Juniper Networks website at https://www.juniper.net/techpubs/.

Overview

The cloud CPE (cCPE) application enables service providers to offer their business enterprise customers virtual customer premises equipment (CPE) services. When you transition your customers to cCPE services, you can replace their complex and expensive Layer 3 CPEs with simple, low-cost Layer 2 CPE devices. Layer 3 CPE functions are provided by the MX Series 3D Universal Edge Router in the service provider cloud. cCPE uses existing Junos OS Release 13.2 features to provide cloud CPE services.

You can run cCPE services on MX Series routers running Junos OS Release 13.2 or later. For information about cCPE services, see https://www.juniper.net/techpubs/en_US/junos13.2/information-products/pathway-pages/subscriber-access/ccpe/cloud-cpe.html.

You can manage cCPE services in several ways:

  • CLI — Service providers can use the Junos OS CLI to provision, manage, and monitor cCPE services.
  • cCPE Selfcare application — Service providers can use the cCPE Selfcare application, which runs on the Junos Space Network Management Platform to provision, manage, and monitor cCPE services. APIs are also available for integrating your operations support systems (OSS) and using it to provision and mange cCPE services.
  • cCPE Selfcare Web portal — Enterprise business customers can use the cCPE Selfcare Web portal to monitor their cCPE services and perform certain configuration changes.

As an option to the cCPE Selfcare application, you can use Junos Space Services Activation Director to provision the network, create subscriber sites, and associate Layer 3 VPN services with subscribers. If you use Junos Space Services Activation Director, the cCPE Selfcare application can import customers and their associated network inventory (interfaces on the router connecting to subscriber sites) from Junos Space Services Activation Director. Otherwise, the cCPE Selfcare application provides its own API and Web GUI to enable importing this information from your OSS.

In addition to inventory management functions, the cCPE Selfcare application implements monitoring and service change APIs that enable service providers to integrate their OSS.

The cCPE Selfcare application also provides a Web portal that enables enterprise customers to manage and monitor their cCPE services. Authorized administrators can change certain configuration parameters and view states and statistics for their cCPE resources. For security purposes, the cCPE Selfcare portal exposes only configuration capabilities that are safely changed by the end subscriber; changing the configuration does not affect other cCPE subscribers.
