Networking Requirements

An enterprise wants to add a branch site, Site2, deploy a CPE as the gateway, and connect Site2 to the WAN through an Internet link, as shown in Figure 2-2. No professional software commissioning engineer is available at Site2. The hardware installation test engineer needs to complete the CPE deployment after installing the CPE.

Solution Design

Hardware installation test engineers usually have limited skills in commissioning router software. However, they have a basic understanding of the operations, for example, connecting terminals such as mobile phones, tablets, and laptops to the network and browsing web pages. Therefore, they can deploy the CPE at Site2 using email-based deployment in the following ways:

  1. The tenant administrator creates Site2 on the Agile Controller-Campus, completes the ZTP configuration for Site2, and sends a deployment email to the specified email address.
  2. The hardware installation test engineer confirms that the mobile phone, tablet, or laptop that is used as the deployment terminal receives the deployment email.
  3. After installing the CPE at the site, the hardware installation test engineer connects the deployment terminal to the CPE in wired or wireless mode and starts the deployment process by accessing the URL in the deployment email. The CPE is automatically deployed after receiving the URL access request.

  1. Create a branch site, complete the ZTP configuration, and send a deployment email on the Agile Controller-Campus as a tenant administrator.

    1. Log in to the Agile Controller-Campus as a tenant administrator.
    2. Choose Configuration > Global Parameters and set global network parameters.
    3. If no required site template is available in the system, create a site template for creating a branch site.
      1. Choose Configuration > Site > Template. On the Site Template page that is displayed, click Create.
      2. Enter the template information.

    4. Create an email template.
      1. Choose Configuration > Site > Template > Email Template.
      2. On the Email Template page that is displayed, click Create. Enter the template information.

    5. Add devices in a batch based on the device models and use them as the CPE gateways for the new branch site.
      1. Choose Device Management > Device List. The Device List page is displayed.
      2. Click Add Device and set Addition method to Manually create.
      3. Set Mode to Device Model, and click Add.
      4. On the page that is displayed, set Type, Device Model, and Quantity, and click OK.
      5. Click Edit, change the value of Device Name, and click Submit.
      6. Click OK.

    6. Create a branch site.
      1. Choose Configuration > Site.
      2. On the Site page that is displayed, click Create. Set Creation mode to Single.
      3. Enter the site information, and select the site template configured in the previous step. For a branch site, you need to select the hub site to which it connects.
      4. Under Add Device, select the devices added in the previous step.
      5. Click OK.

    7. Complete the ZTP configuration for the new branch site and send a deployment email.
      1. Configure the WAN links.
        1. Choose Configuration > Site > ZTP Configuration. The ZTP Configuration page is displayed.
        2. In the Not Activated list, click the new branch site. The WAN Link page displays link information.
        3. Click in the Operation column in the right pane.
        4. In the Set WAN Link dialog box that is displayed, set WAN link parameters.
        5. Click Apply Changes.

      2. Complete the NTP configuration.

        On the NTP page that is displayed, select a time zone for the devices. Enter NTP information and click Apply Changes.

      3. After completing the ZTP configuration, click Send Email.
        1. In the displayed Send Email dialog box, select the site to deploy and click .
        2. Enter the recipient email address and CC email address, select the created email template, modify the email content, and click OK.

    8. Complete the underlay and overlay network configurations for the branch site. The configuration details are not mentioned here.

  2. Perform email-based deployment as a deployment engineer.

    1. Check the deployment email.
    2. Install a CPE onsite and connect the deployment terminal that receives the email to the CPE.
      1. Install the CPE, connect cables, and power on the CPE.
      2. Connect the deployment terminal to the CPE.
    • Wireless access

      In the device's factory settings, the deployment Wi-Fi network SSID is a character string that consists of PnP_ and the last six digits of the device's ESN, in the PnP_xxxxxx format. The deployment Wi-Fi password is a character string that consists of AR and the last six digits of the network SSID, in the ARxxxxxx format.

      The deployment engineer uses a deployment terminal to search for the deployment Wi-Fi network SSID and enters the deployment Wi-Fi password to access the device. When the deployment terminal has been connected to the specified deployment Wi-Fi network and obtained an IP address, this deployment terminal has been connected to the device.

      Only the devices with the default WLAN mode as the AP mode support wireless access of deployment terminals.

    1. Wired access (the following example uses a PC with Windows 7 installed).
      1. Use an Ethernet cable to connect the PC to the management interface of the CPE.

        The CPE's management interface is often marked with the Management or MGMT silkscreen. Management interfaces of some device models do not have this silkscreen. You can check the position of the management interface by referring to the product documentation.

      2. Configure the PC to obtain an IP address dynamically.

        In factory settings, the IP address of the management interface is, the subnet mask is, and the DHCP server function is enabled so that the PC can automatically obtain an IP address through DHCP. If the PC can ping the IP address of the management interface, the PC has successfully connected to the CPE.

    2. Perform email-based deployment.

    If two gateways are deployed at a site, disconnect the cable between them before deployment, and then reconnect it after deployment. If the cable is not disconnected, deployment may fail.

    1. On the deployment terminal, open the deployment email, click the URL in the email or copy the URL to the browser's address bar to execute it. The deployment Portal page is then displayed in the browser.
    2. On the page that is displayed, enter the password and click GO. The system uses the password to decrypt the encrypted URL.

      The entered password must be the same as the value of URL encryption key specified in set global network parameters.

    3. Click Check Parameters to check the automatically parsed parameters and click Confirm Deployment to start the deployment process.

    4. After the CPE completes deployment and registers with the Agile Controller-Campus, the following page is displayed on the deployment terminal, indicating that the deployment is successful.

  3. Verify the deployment result.

    • Check whether the CPE status is Normal on the Agile Controller-Campus as a tenant administrator.

      Choose Device Management > Device List. On the Device List page that is displayed, find the target CPE. If Status displays Normal, the AR has successfully registered with the Agile Controller-Campus and gone online.

    • If an AR650 or AR1600 series router is deployed as a CPE, check the CTRL indicator status on the AR. If the indicator is steady on, the AR has successfully registered with the Agile Controller-Campus.
