The system has two STM-1 optical / electrical interfaces in the aggregate side and allows for upto 3 tributary add-on cards. The following tributaries are available as add-on cards for the chasis:
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.
Additionally it provides a single 10/100Base-T Ethernet port, which can be mapped to one VC-12 bandwidth towards the aggregate side. This feature does not use any tributary slot and hence can supplement E1/DS1/E3/DS3 customers requiring a single Ethernet interface. This Ethernet interface on the base card is optional.
VCL100MC-1 Network Element Software (NES)
The VCL100MC-1 node is managed through the embedded (Network Element Software). The main capabilities are listed below:
A standard Network Element Software (NES) starter package enables all of the above.
User can access and control all of the above-mentioned features using a standard Hyper Text Transfer Protocol (HTTP) based web browser. The Ethernet interface on the base chassis is to be used as the physical data connection for this purpose. The NES also allows users to control remote nodes using the web browser interface. For this purpose Valiant uses SDH DCC bytes for carrying the management information to the remote node.
To provide network wide management and control of VCL100MC-1 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.
The (NES) point-and-click provisioning tool (PNCP) is a set of software modules that enables customers to provision end-end circuits is a network that comprises all Valiant family of SDH products. Users can enable this feature using the node-resident software module NES-NODE-PNCP, and the server-resident software module NES-HOST-PNCP.
Network Management System
The STM-1 / STM-4 provides support for centralized network management through Network Management System (NMS).
