Provisioning Devices 2: Device Grouping

This tutorial describes optional steps that you can use to organize the devices in your deployment. It assumes that you have already created and assigned device models to devices and have created at least a default service class for devices. These steps may not be typical in many deployments, but are offered as a means of creating ordered categories in which to place devices.

For example, if the deployment includes multiple device types that support different TR-069 data model specifications, it may be useful to create a device group for each data model.

Prerequisite

Complete the tutorial Provisioning Devices 1: Basic Setup.

About Device Groups

Device groups are containers for organizing devices that share common parameters. For example, you can group devices by region, service type, or vendor type. Devices can belong to more than one device group.

For this tutorial, use the information in the following table to create the device group.

Table 1. Device Group Details
Name Type
LabDG Device

Create a Device Group

Create a device group for lab devices. Base membership in the device group on the device ID (device-based).

  1. From the ACS Hub, go to Device Groups.

  2. In the action bar, click Create.
  3. Type a name and choose a type for the device group. Optionally, type a description.

  4. In the action bar, click Save.

    A screen with the device group details appears.

  5. Click Add Devices, and in the action bar, click Add.

    The Associated Devices screen appears.

  6. In the action bar, click Add.

    The Associated Devices screen appears.

  7. Select all devices in the list, and in the action bar, click Add.
  8. In the action bar, click Confirm to save the device group.

Create a Service Class

Using the task Create a Default Service Class described earlier in this tutorial, create a service class for lab devices. Rather than adding the service class to the “Walled Garden” device group, add it to the “LabDG” device group created in the previous section.

Set the priority of the “LabSC” service class to a higher value than the priority specified in the default service class. The parameters in the lab device service class override the same parameters in the default service class.

For this tutorial, use the information in the following tables to create the service class.
