WebNMS's Remote Operations Management solution helps equipment
vendors deliver value that goes beyond supplying equipment to their
customers. Post deployment, equipment vendors can offer services
to monitor and manage devices for their customers. Equipment vendors
can offer these services remotely from a central site, allowing
it to be scaled easily as their customer base grows.
The solution offers the following benefits:
It enables a service delivery platform for equipment vendors.
It helps in optimization of operational costs.
It provides vendors increased visibility into the usage of
the devices by their customers, which can be used in developing
and improving the future versions of the device.
WebNMSs operations management solution is built over
WebNMS RME. The solution offers a secure, highly available,
scalable, resilient and customizable service delivery platform which
can be used for a wide range of equipments. The deployment involves
installation of a central server at the central location with remote
probes installed at each customer location. The remote probe collects
status of devices in its location and communicates it to the central
server. Operators and service personnel can access this information
at the central site or be informed by an e-mail or a message on
a mobile device.
Intelligent Distributed Architecture:
WebNMS FrameWork RME is designed around a twin layer architecture that
distributes intelligence and network facing functionalities across
locations. With a local database and option to transmit data periodically
and on demand, it efficiently uses a local archive of the performance
and fault values. In case of link failures it also buffers the
data and transmits it when the link is restored or available.
Support for multiple IP addresses: Critical when managing
resources across multiple enterprises, WebNMS FrameWork RME supports
management of devices with the same IP address in two different
WebNMS FrameWork RME supports remote management with a flexible remote
to center communication. The Distributed Mediation Server can
connect to the central server either through a dedicated connection
or through an on-demand dial-up connection. This ensures a cost-effective
deployment across hundreds of locations with low resource requirements.
Communication Across Secure Networks: Factoring in the
network security deployments across enterprises,
WebNMS FrameWork RME can manage devices and equipments across firewalls
and NAT-enabled networks. This is implemented in a secure manner
to ensure that the security of the enterprise is maintained at
the initial level.
Integrated Multi-Tier Security: The system uses SSL based
secure communication channel across the central and the remote
site to ensure communication security.
WebNMS FrameWork RME offers customer-wise view of network information
to allow operators to quickly get an overview of the status for
each customer. The customer-wise view is available for all inventory
fault and performance data.
Comprehensive Management: The system offers complete
fault, configuration, performance and security management of devices
and applications (optional) to enable vendors have enhanced visibility
of the customer deployments. With interfaces to integrate with
WebNMS FrameWork RME can be deployed as the basic engine powering a
workflow system with network related information.
Integrated reporting: The system comes integrated with
a comprehensive reporting engine for generating reports related
to different performance parameters. Additionally, the system
can be integrated with other third party reporting tools.
Multiple Protocol Support:
WebNMS FrameWork RME supports a comprehensive set of protocols on the
southbound. This helps it manage various devices including telecom
equipment. Some of the protocols supported at SNMP, TL1, CORBA
and CLI. On the northbound it supports TL1 and CORBA for integration
with other existing and legacy applications.
