Part Number E36037-01
|PDF · Mobi · ePub|
Oracle Communications Unified Inventory Management (UIM) technology packs provide support for specific technology domains and a base for project-specific adaptation. Wherever possible, technology packs include elements and business logic based on relevant industry standards. The use of industry standards provides a set of elements and business logic that you can use with a minimal amount of customization.
Technology packs are separately licensed and may evolve over multiple releases. Guidelines are provided to facilitate uptake of new or enriched elements while preserving existing user implementations of the technology packs.
The L2 VPN Technology Pack provides business entities and behaviors required by providers of data networking services using Layer 2 virtual private networks (VPNs) as standardized by RFCs 2764, 4761, and 4762. This includes support for virtual leased lines (VLLs) and virtual private LAN service (VPLS) that may be deployed in hub-and-spoke, meshed, and hierarchical topologies.
This guide contains the following:
Information about Layer 2 VPN technology and the technology pack
Contents of the technology pack
Instructions for configuring a Layer 2 VPN service
Example implementation scenario
