TL1 is the most widely used management protocol in
telecommunication networks. Although it is simple and
easy to use, it manages complex network elements.WebNMS
Agent Toolkit can be used to build robust TL1 agent
that is specifically designed to render feature-rich
solutions for such complex applications. The toolkit
uses XML-driven TCS data to define the management information
for the TL1 agents.
Agent Toolkit Java Edition provides a complete development
environment with tools bundled to help developers through
every phase of the agent development cycle.
Key Features and Benefits
Netowork Element (NE) / Network System
Enables authentication that prevents unauthorized users
from accessing a particular resource.
Autonomous messages support
Unsolicited messages that notify the manager of some
Delayed Activation support
Input messages can be stored in a Message Pending buffer
at the NE for final execution later time.
Support for Built-in commands
Input commands applicable to all the NE in the network.
Asynchronous Message Processing
Improves system performance as many requests are sent
from the manager simultaneously without waiting for
the response of the previously sent message.
Helps you to monitor the agent details, such as the
number of requests received, number of responses and
autonomous messages sent, etc.
Manager gets updated about the request processing in
the NE using the automatic acknowledgment message.
Craft Terminal Interface
Provides a means of TL1 agent processing using local
Transport Provider Interface
Allows users to plug in their own transport protocol
