What is L3VPN  

Layer 3 Virtual Private Networks (l3vpn): L3VPN is a technology based on PE. It uses MPLS to forward VPN packets over service provider backbones.

L3VPN comprises the following types of devices:

            Customer edge (CE) device—A CE resides on a customer network and has one or more interfaces directly connected to service provider networks. It can be a router, a switch, or a host. 

·           Provider edge (PE) device—A PE resides at the edge of a service provider network and connects one or more CEs. On an MPLS network, all VPN services are processed on the PEs.

·           Provider (P) device—A P device is a core device on a service provider network. It is not directly connected to any CE. It has only basic MPLS forwarding capability.

Introduction 

This project in ONOS implements the L3VPN creation requests from App. It provides a Rest Api for north app to use. When getting creation requests , the L3VPN component prepares the configuration informations and downloads the configuration informations into PE devices.

The Project is primarily driven by Yang Model.

Architecture

The architecture of L3VPN as below:

What we do

NetL3VPN manager

It's a application. 

  • Provide REST services.
  • Provide distributed store for L3VPN instances.
  • Provide Resource Allocation for L3VPN instance.

How we do

  • Build onos and start onos cli session.
  • Activate the below necessary apps in cli

    Info
    titleApplications to activate

    app activate org.onosproject.yang
    app activate org.onosproject.config
    app activate org.onosproject.restconf
    app activate org.onosproject.protocols.restconfserver
    app activate org.onosproject.netconf
    app activate org.onosproject.netconfsb
    app activate org.onosproject.apps.l3vpn
    app activate org.onosproject.drivers.huawei

  • Configure all the necessary pre-configuration on the device to establish a netconf connection and then connect to the devices by following NETCONF#ConnectyourowndevicetoONOS
  • Configure L3VPN instance by sending via json.
