1 Introduction
1.1 System overview

The Cogeco Peer 1 Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN) Self-Service Portal User Guide provides customers with a quick
way to set up and manage wide area networks, including privacy and security. Cogeco Peer 1 will create and manage
subscriber organizations and grant them access for self-management through the Self-Service Portal. This SD-WAN
Portal provides a flexible management approach, meaning Cogeco Peer 1 may perform all network service management
on behalf of its subscriber organizations, or a subscriber organization may perform self-service setup and management
of their networks.

1.2 Subscriber staff requirements

    1.2.1 Roles

    A single admin account is provided to get started with the Self-Service Portal. This account should be used to create
    individual user accounts for staff who will access the portal. The admin account is a special account that may not be
    restricted from accessing any areas of the system. All other user accounts will access only those areas of the system
    permitted through their user group permissions. See Create a user group for more information.

    1.2.2 Knowledge and training

    General knowledge of networking is required for Subscriber staff to use the Self-Service Portal. Knowledge of basic
    networking should include a basic understanding of:

    •   LANs
    •   Zones
    •   Subnets
    •   Virtual LANs (VLANs)
    •   Network monitoring, operations, and policies


2 Getting started
2.1 Logging on

3 Managing branches
3.1 Overview

Branches identify the physical location of a franchise or operational center for the organization. A branch will host a single
Network Service Gateway (NSG) which can be one of several types:

•    NSG-C – A 3-port physical NSG with dual WAN uplink ports and one dedicated LAN ports
•    NSG-E – A 6-port physical NSG with dual WAN uplink ports and four dedicated LAN ports
•    NSG-V – A software image with NSG functionality that can be deployed as a software-only form factor on a
     customer-provided appliance or as a virtual machine

The NSG supplies a physical point of access to the branch to the rest of the network. Through the NSG device and network
services policies, much of the network configuration handled by other devices (firewalls) can be eliminated to create a
single end-to-end solution.

3.2 Create a branch

4 Managing networks
4.1 Overview

Different networks may be used to separate specific areas within an organization such as finance, accounting, customer
records, etc. A network can be defined as a simple or a custom network.

A simple network takes only a network name, description, number of zones and the size of a zone as input. It is called a
simple network because it creates a 1:1 ratio between zones and subnets [1 zone has 1 subnet created automatically].
Selecting the approximate size of each zone will reserve the required IP addresses and ensure no overlap. Each subnet is
predefined to automatically pick-up the next available internet protocol (IP) address block. Additional zones and subnets
can be added later as required.

A custom network allows complete flexibility to the number of zones and subnets to be used. It allows each object to be
defined independently and allows for multiple subnets per zone.

4.2       Create a new L3 network

1.    Navigate to the ‘Networks’ page.

Click ‘L3 Networks’ in the left menu. The L3 Networks page lists the existing L3 networks in your organization.




Click . The Network Details page will open.




Enter a name and description for the network.

For ‘Simple network definition’, select the number of zones (up to 10) and the number of hosted devices per zone.

•     Small (up to 250 devices)

•     Medium (up to 1000 devices)

•     Large (up to 4000 devices)

Alternatively, select ‘Custom network definition’ to create an empty network within which you can define zones and
subnets as required.

Click .

Note: If you select the simple network option, one subnet will be created for every zone.

7 Reports
These reports are available to organizations that have been assigned with appropriate customer profiles and users with
appropriate roles.

The 95th percentile throughput data displayed in various reports is aimed to help the network planners to evaluate the
regular and sustained utilization of a network. Self-Service Portal uses the algorithm below to calculate the 95th
percentile data for the various reports:


    1. Let n be the length of the (sorted) array and 0 < p = n return the largest element in the array.
       Else let lower be the element in position floor (pos) in the array and let upper be the next
       element in the array.
       Return lower + d * (upper - lower)


For more details about the algorithm, refer to http://commons.apache.org/proper/commons-math/javadocs/api-3.5/
org/apache/commons/math3/stat/descriptive/rank/Percentile.html
