The STM-1 / STM-4 can be managed through an integrated NMS that manages all the equipment, providing customers with end-to-end provisioning from a single platform for multiple service types - from E1/DS1s, E3/DS3s, E4/STM-1e, STM-1o and 10/100Mbps Ethernet services.
VCL100 STM-1/4 Network Element Software
The VCL100 STM-1/4 node is managed through the embedded NES (Network Element Software). The main capabilities of NES are listed below:
User can access and control all of the above-mentioned features using a standard HTTP based web browser by enabling the Web server software module (NES-WEB-HTTP) within the Network Element Software. The Ethernet interface on the MIC (Management Interface Card) is to be used as the physical data connection for this purpose. NES also allows users to control remote nodes using SDH DCC bytes by enabling the in-band communication module (NES-IBC).
To provide network wide management and control of VCL100 STM-1/4 nodes through industry standard Network Management Systems, users can enable the Simple Network Management Protocol interface software module (NES-SNMP). This module provides open interfaces which can be also be used by Network Management System (NMS) which is described later in this document.
10/100 Mbps half-duplex LAN interface for NMS data connection to VCL100 STM-1/4 node (RJ45 connector) RS232C Craft interface for local Command Line Interface data connection 2 wire analog telephone interface for Engineering Order Wire (E1 or E2 bytes access) with omnibus calling In-band control channel supported for remote management (F2 & F3 bytes used from POH).
