AT&T Workflow description

  1. ONT discovered bottom-up
  2. If ONT serial number is not allowed or unknown (i.e it has NOT been provisioned by OSS), disable the ONT; generate an event to external OSS that an ONU has been discovered but not yet provisioned.
  3. When OSS provisions the ONT, re-enable it & program 802.1x flow - UNI port(s) will be UP
  4. Ensure that DHCP fails here (because subscriber/service-binding has not been provisioned by OSS yet)
  5. 802.1x EAPOL message happens from RG, and ONOS AAA app adds options and sends to radius server. Options are pulled from Sadis/NEM - no subscriber information is required here
  6. If RG authentication fails, allow it to keep trying (in the future consider redirection to captive / self-help portal). DHCP should not succeed since RG authentication has failed
  7. If RG authentication succeeds, ONOS AAA app notifies via an event on the kafka bus that authentication has succeeded
  8. NEM can listen for the event, and then check to see if subscriber/service-binding has happened on that port from OSS - if not, then nothing to be done
  9. Must ensure that DHCP fails here even though RG has been authenticated (because subscriber/service-binding has not been provisioned by OSS yet)
  10. When OSS provisions the subscriber/service-binding on the UNI port and gives the C and S vlan info, then DHCP trap will be programmed on the port, and DHCP process can start
  11. If RG is disconnected from UNI port, force authentication again (even if subscriber/service-binding has been provisioned by OSS). Upon reconnection to UNI port, RG must re-authenticate before DHCP/other-traffic can flow on the provisioned VLANs.
  12. DHCP L2 relay -> add option 82, learn public IP address, forward via dataplane to external DHCP server

This schema summarizes the workflow, please note:

  • in light blue are environment events (wether they are triggered from hardware or from an operator)
  • in yellow are NEM configuration calls to ONOS or VOLTHA
  • in green are decisions
  • in orange event published on the kafka bus


NOTE: when we refer to service chain we are talking about the set of subscriber specific service instances that will trigger the add_subscriber call in ONOS-VOLTHA and provision the crossconnect in ONOS-FABRIC
