SSR120 Device Onboarding

Congratulations on your new Session Smart Routing (SSR) WAN Edge device!

Let's get it set up in the Mist cloud with WAN Assurance.

Connect Your Device to the Cloud

Device Connections

Your SSR device uses Port 0 (ge-0-0) as a default WAN port to contact Mist for zero-touch provisioning (ZTP). You will also be setting up Port 3 (ge-0-3) with a LAN network.

  1. Connect Port 0 to an Ethernet WAN link capable of providing the device with:

    • DHCP address assignment
    • Connectivity to the Internet and Mist
  2. Connect Port 3 to your LAN devices, including:

    • Mist-managed Juniper EX switches
    • Mist APs
    • User devices
  3. Power on the device.

Great job! Your SSR device is now connected to the Mist cloud and awaiting further instructions.

When a device is assigned to a site and set to be managed by Mist, upon first connection of the device to the cloud you will be prompted to upgrade to a version of software compatible with Mist. In some initial onboarding cases, this upgrade process may take up to 30 minutes or more.

Onboarding Complete!

Fantastic, your device is in your inventory! To provision your SSR device with ZTP, log into Mist and continue to WAN configuration.
