Juniper Address Pool Manager (APM), is a cloud-native, container-based application running on a Kubernetes cluster that manages address pools in a network. APM monitors the IPv4 address pools on broadband network gateways (BNGs) in the network. When the free address utilization drops below a specified threshold on a BNG, APM adds unused prefixes from a centralized pool to BNG's address pool.

APM in cooperation with the BNG supports monitoring and linking address pools for subscribers that connect via PPPoE, or PPP over L2TP network server (LNS).

The benefits of APM are as follows:

  • Improves the efficiency of address utilization
  • Reduces the overhead and complexity of monitoring and provisioning by automating monitoring and provisioning.
  • Allows reclamation of underutilized prefixes for redistribution to the pools that need them.
  • Enables APM to work with the BNG Controller.

These release notes accompany APM Release 3.2.0.
