Step 2: Up and Running

The SSR130 is onboarded to the Juniper Mist™ cloud. To provision the SSR130 with ZTP, log in to your Mist portal and begin the WAN configuration.

Configuring your SSR device is made simple through the use of the SSR WAN Edge Templates.

Create a Template

The WAN Edge Templates provide you with the basic network configuration in a single step, and allow for re-usable and consistent configuration for every SSR device you deploy. The template provides device specific, preconfigured WAN interfaces, LAN interfaces, a traffic steering policy, and an application policy. You simply name the template and select the device type.

  1. From the the organization sidebar menu, select WAN Edge Templates.

  2. Select Create Template in the upper right.

  3. Give the template a name.

  4. Place a checkmark in the Create from Device Model box.

  5. Select your SSR model from the dropdown.

  6. Click Create.

The device template is displayed. Scroll down through the template to see the preconfigured WAN interfaces, LAN interfaces, Traffic Steering, and Application Policies. Great job! You now have a working WAN Edge template you can apply to many sites and devices across your organization.

Assign the Template to a Site

Now that you have set up a template, you need to assign it to the site where your SSR will be deployed.
  1. Scroll to the top and click Assign to Site.
  2. Select the site from the list where you want the template applied.
  3. Click Apply.
Great work! All that remains is to associate the SSR130 with a site.

Assign the SSR130 to a Site

Once you associate the SSR130 with a site and a template, the working configuration will be complete.
  1. Select Organization on the left sidebar, and navigate to your organization's WAN Edges Inventory.
  2. Select your SSR130 and assign it to your site.
  3. If you are configuring a Mist-managed router (SSR Software version 6.x and greater), check the Manage configuration with Mist check box. For version 5.4.x and greater conductor-managed routers, make sure there is no check mark in the Manage Configuration from Mist under Manage Configuration.
  4. Select Assign to Site.

Congratulations you now have a Mist-claimed SSR130, and a basic configuration ready to send to your device!

Install the SSR130 Hardware

Your SSR130 installation has specific features that must be installed depending on your use and environment . Refer to the SSR130 Hardware Installation Guide to complete the following procedures:

  • Rack, Wall, or Surface Mounting
  • LTE Antenna Install
  • SIM Card Install
  • Connecting Power

Please return here after completing those procedures to complete the network connections.

Connect your SSR130 to the Mist Cloud

Your SSR130 uses port 0 (ge-0-0) as a default WAN port to contact Mist for zero-touch provisioning (ZTP). You'll need to set up port 3 (ge-0-3) with a LAN network.

  1. Connect SSR port 0 to an Ethernet WAN link that can provide:
  2. Connect SSR port 3 to your LAN devices, including:
    • Mist-managed Juniper EX switches
    • Mist APs
    • User devices
Great job, your SSR130 is now connected to the Mist cloud! In just a few minutes, Mist will send the template-driven configuration down to your device. Once the configuration has been applied, it will begin forwarding sessions from LAN to WAN as described by your policy.

Head over to the WAN Edges menu on the Mist sidebar, select your device, and watch events as the device completes ZTP.

As your client devices connected to the LAN are assigned addresses from the WAN Edge DHCP server and begin sending sessions, telemetry will populate the insights page, and Marvis will start analyzing it on your behalf.

For conductor-managed devices, additional views for Cloud Telemetry are configurable in the SSR GUI and PCLI.
