TMA for HP OpenView

  • HP OpenView module for the management of Telindus equipment
  • Multiple management transport protocols
  • User-selectable alarm levels
  • Interactive pictures

Telecommunication networks evolve from year to year, and increasingly people rely on these networks for conducting their business. As a result, performance and reliability of these infrastructures have become an essential requirement in today’s world.

TMA (Telindus Management Application) for HP OpenView meets all these requirements by providing a powerful management tool for Telindus access equipment. TMA for HP OpenView supports permanent performance monitoring of each network element (alarms, status and statistics), network element configuration, and operator initiated actions (such as testing).

All alarms on each individual network element are immediately logged in the HP OpenView event-log, and the HP OpenView icon on the map reflects the resulting status. For this purpose, TMA for HP OpenView fully supports the HP OpenView alarm levels (warning, minor, major, critical). The operator can configure these alarm levels for each individual alarm condition. The status of all network equipment is also easily visualised by an interactive picture (including LED and push-button status), where colour-codes allow for a quick identification of the cause of potential network trouble.

A user-friendly menu enables the configuration of any individual network element. When activating configuration consistency, the management keeps the network element configurations completely consistent with centrally stored configuration profiles, even when a network element is replaced. Similarly code consistency allows keeping Flash code consistent with centrally stored firmware versions.

Integration with the HP OpenView Event-Log

All Telindus equipment supports a private SNMP MIB. It is ideal for performance monitoring based on the polling of different parameters (e.g. noise level, line attenuation). The HP OpenView platform provides the ability for representation of these polling results in graphical format. TMA for HP OpenView integrates seamlessly with third-party management modules, making it possible to integrate the management of Telindus modem and third-party router equipment, for example, on the same platform.

TMA for HP OpenView uses TCP/IP connectivity to address the Telindus equipment. Each network element may or may not be identified by an IP address. Some units (such as the Crocus inverse multiplexer) have a direct Ethernet port, whilst other units (such as the Aster and Crocus modem ranges) are connected to a controller device (Orchid 1003 LAN) which acts as an TCP/IP proxy. Only centrally installed modem equipment is connected to the Orchid 1003 LAN. An out-band auxiliary channel on the modem-link is used to give management access to remote equipment. Also more complex configurations such as management on extended links are possible.

In the case of management through an Orchid 1003 LAN, this controller can encapsulate the IP management traffic directly into X.25 SVC’s, Frame Relay PVC’s or PPP. This allows the transport of the management information over a packet switched backbone, without the need for an overlay network.

TCP/IP connectivity of management traffic

TMA for HP OpenView auto-discovers very quickly all network elements defined on the Orchid 1003 LAN. On the map, the network elements get always their name as it has been assigned on the Orchid 1003 LAN.
