Service providers and enterprises must be able to rapidly provision and offer new MPLS and Carrier Ethernet services across their networks. In order to reduce operational costs and enable quick service rollouts, these network operators need an intelligent provisioning application that facilitates the design, deployment and management of services.

Junos Space Connectivity Services Director facilitates lifecycle management of connectivity services such as L2VPN and L3VPN services, QoS profile configuration, service performance validation and monitoring, and synchronization management. In addition to an intuitive graphical user interface, the application also supports a rich set of API functions to enable northbound integration and service orchestration with other OSS platforms.

Junos Space Network Management

Junos Space Connectivity Services Director is part of Junos Space, a comprehensive network management solution that simplifies management of Juniper’s switching, routing, and security devices. Junos Space is a critical component of Juniper’s SDN strategy as it provides a centralized management plane with a single point-of-access into the network and a common management platform for managing and creating applications to meet your specific needs. With Junos Space, you can simplify and automate the network, improve network agility, and deliver new services quickly, all from a single console. Junos Space is composed of the following software elements:

  • Junos Space Network Management Platform: Provides comprehensive FCAPS and element management of Juniper devices which improves operator efficiencies, providing a programmable interface and exposable APIs that enable the development and integration of third-party applications.
  • Junos Space Management Applications: Plug-and-play, domain-specific applications to help you provision new services and optimize workflow tasks across thousands of Juniper devices.

While the Junos Space Network Management Platform offers broad fault, configuration, and device provisioning capabilities with a task-specific user interface, Junos Space Management Applications extend the breadth of the platform to optimize network management for various domains. The Connectivity Services Director application runs on the Junos Space platform, where it enables users to automate the end-to-end provisioning of new services across thousands of devices with a simple point-and-click GUI, and to optimize management for specific domains such as core, edge, access and aggregation, data center, WAN, and campus and branch.

Junos Space Connectivity Services Director Product Description

Companies that offer MPLS and Carrier Ethernet services face common business challenges such as controlling capital and operating expenses, accelerating time to market and increasing customer satisfaction. At the same time, these companies also have to deal with technical challenges such as:

  • Provisioning a customer service rapidly and accurately
  • Scaling to keep up with customer demand
  • Tracking site-specific quality of service (QoS)
  • Troubleshooting and pinpointing problems in the network

Junos Space Connectivity Services Director allows service providers and enterprises to rapidly enable new service offerings. It facilitates an automated and streamlined approach to the service design and provisioning process and helps reduce fallout from misconfigured customer services, thereby increasing customer satisfaction and retention. Besides automating key provisioning tasks, Junos Space Connectivity Services Director also provides a complete network management solution, including automated service discovery, MPLS resource management, point-and-click service provisioning, validation, and troubleshooting for legacy ATM/TDM, MPLS and Carrier Ethernet environments.

The Junos Space Connectivity Services Director essentially manages the lifecycle of L2 and L3 services comprised of resource pool management, service design and provisioning, troubleshooting and performance monitoring, and service decommissioning. The highlevel capabilities of the product include:

  • Automating the design, activation, and validation of the provisioning process for L2 and L3 VPNs across ATM/TDM, MPLS and Carrier Ethernet networks, enabling service providers to efficiently and cost-effectively manage deployments while reducing fallout from misconfigured services.
  • Designing, provisioning and activation of RSVP-signaled label-switched paths (LSPs), as well as static LSPs, which can be configured as end-to-end, P2P, P2MP or full mesh.
  • Monitoring faults and performance of VPN services using standards-based protocols and technologies such as Ethernet Connectivity Fault Management (CFM), Ethernet link-level fault detection and management, and Bidirectional Forward Detection (BFD).
  • Provisioning synchronization interfaces such as IEEE1588- 2008(PTP) and Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE).

The Junos Space Network Management Platform and Junos Space Connectivity Services Director are all accessible through a northbound Representational State Transfer (REST)-based API. This enables network providers to tap into the rich functionality of Junos Space and build native applications on their Operations/ Business Support Systems (OSS/BSS) as they begin to embrace SDN architectures in their networks.

The Junos Space Network Management Platform infrastructure provides the basic capabilities for device management and system administration, such as:

  • Device discovery
  • Device image management
  • Device inventory management
  • Script management
  • Log files management
  • User and security administration
  • Fault management
  • Performance management

In addition to these basic functions, the Junos Space Network Management Platform facilitates a multi-tenant, plug-and-play application environment that enables fast start up and in-service device upgrades.
