You can perform the following tasks from this page:

  • View administrative details about the service. See General Information in Table 1.

  • View resources required for the service and its performance specification. See Service Requirements and Service Performance in Table 1.

  • View the service chain, with its constituent VNFs. See Service Configuration in Table 1.

Field Descriptions

Table 1 provides guidelines on using the fields on the Service Overview page.

Table 1: Fields on the Service Overview Page



General Information


View a summary about the service’s capabilities.

The network service designer provides this summary.


View the state of the network service:

  • Discontinued—Service is no longer available for customers.

  • Published—Service designer has published service to network catalog, and it is available for customers.


View the number of tenants using this service.

Service Requirements


View the number of CPUs that the service needs (cores).


View the amount of RAM that the service needs in gigabytes (GB).

Service Performance


View the number of sessions concurrently supported by one instance of the service.


View the data rate for the service in megabytes per second (Mbps) or gigabytes per second (Gbps).


View the time a packet takes to traverse the service in milliseconds (ms) or nanoseconds (ns).

Service Configuration (graphic of the service chain)


View the ingress point—the point at which packets enter the service.


View the egress point—the point at which packets exit the service.

One or more VNFs

Click to view settings for the VNF.

The service designer can configure the VNF settings in Network Service Designer and the administrative user can configure the VNF settings in Customer Portal.

Best Practice:

The network service designer configures settings for the virtual machine (VM) in which the virtualized network function (VNF) resides and the administrative user configures settings for the service, such as policies. The service designer can also configure a few example settings for the service. These example settings should be generic and not network-specific.
