Configuring Dynamic Profiles for the DHCP Layer 3 Wholesale Network Solution

A dynamic profile is a set of characteristics, defined in a type of template, that you can use to provide services for broadband applications. These services are assigned dynamically to interfaces as they access the network. When configuring dynamic profiles for the DHCP Layer 3 wholesale network, you can choose to configure one dynamic profile to address all incoming subscribers or you can configure individual dynamic profiles for use by the different network management groups (that is, the wholesaler and any retailers). In fact, you can create multiple dynamic profiles that you can use to roll out different services and selectively apply those dynamic profiles to different subscriber groups as necessary.

In this solution example, one dynamic profile is created for use by the wholesaler when subscribers initially access the network. Other dynamic profiles are created for the subscribers for each individual retailer to use after they are redirected to that retailer network space.

Configuring a Wholesale Dynamic Profile for use in the DHCP Solution

You can configure a basic access profile to initially manage subscribers that access the network.

To configure a dynamic profile for use by the wholesaler:

  1. Create a wholesale dynamic profile.
    [edit] user@host# edit dynamic-profiles Wholesaler1
  2. Define the dynamic profile interfaces.

    See Configuring Dynamic Subscriber Interfaces Using IP Demux Interfaces in Dynamic Profiles for the minimal dynamic demux interface configuration.

Configuring a Retail Dynamic Profile for use in the DHCP Solution

To configure a dynamic profile for use with retailer access:

  1. Create a retail dynamic profile.
    [edit] user@host# edit dynamic-profiles Subscriber_Profile_Retail1
  2. Define the dynamic routing instance variable in the dynamic profile.
    [edit dynamic-profiles “Subscriber_Profile_Retail1”]user@host# edit routing-instances $junos-routing-instance
  3. Set the dynamic interface variable for the dynamic routing instance.
    [edit dynamic-profiles “Subscriber_Profile_Retail1” routing-instances “$junos-routing-instance”]user@host# set interface $junos-interface-name
  4. Define the dynamic profile interfaces.

    See Configuring Dynamic Subscriber Interfaces Using IP Demux Interfaces in Dynamic Profiles for the minimal dynamic demux interface configuration.
