About this Network Configuration Example
This network configuration example (NCE) describes how to set up the network and the security infrastructure in a small branch office using Juniper Networks’ NFX150 NextGen services gateways. It outlines the dual role of the Juniper Networks’ NFX150 Network Services Platform as a branch security gateway and a virtualization platform. This NCE provides step-by-step configuration for initial onboarding and provisioning of basic services, such as DHCP service, source NAT, and 802.1X authentication for users connected to the NFX150 Next Generation universal CPE (uCPE) services gateway. The RADIUS server used for authentication is run as a virtualized network function (VNF) on the NFX150 device. The operating system used for VNF is Ubuntu.
