Self-service networks allow users to create their own network topology: As many virtual networks as they like, interconnected with virtual routers and connected to an external network. Provider networks map to actual physical networks or VLANs in the datacenter and can't be used for creating users' topologies.They can only be set up by an admin.

Also self-service networks enables VXLAN, in that way, you will have a private tunnels within your openstack nodes, that will allow you to create your own vxlan/subnets. Later that vxlan/subnets can be connected to the external/provider networks using an openstack router
