WebNMS Launches High-Performance Carrier Ethernet OAM Solution

WebNMS, provider of Element Management System (EMS) and Network Management Systems (NMS) solutions for the telecom industry, today announced the launch of its high-performance Carrier Ethernet OAM solution. Available immediately, the new solution combines multi-vendor support with a state-of-the-art feature set to drive operating expense (OPEX) reductions for service providers managing Carrier Ethernet equipment from a single vendor or from multiple vendors.

WebNMS will showcase its new OAM solution in booth #133 at Light Reading’s Ethernet Expo Americas 2012, being held November 6-8, 2012, at the Hilton New York in New York City.

To maintain service continuity and reduce OPEX in multi-vendor Carrier Ethernet environments, service providers need to control, measure and report Ethernet service in a standard way, across all services and all vendors’ devices. Not every vendor, however, uses the MEF-Ethernet management model or standard MIBs, opting instead to implement custom RFCs and commands. The resulting fragmentation sticks service providers with multiple management consoles and systems integrations. The new WebNMS Carrier Ethernet OAM solution creates a single console for multi-vendor environments and delivers shorter time-to-market for new services, end-to-end service performance monitoring, and a more cost-effective, scalable and resilient infrastructure for data and voice services.

“We’ve engineered the WebNMS Carrier Ethernet OAM solution to directly address the management challenge service providers face,” said Eric Wegner, business development manager, WebNMS. “Our solution provides a console from which service providers can manage all of their Carrier Ethernet equipment. As a result, our users gain a unified system of their networks to enable informed, proactive management and swift problem resolution that effectively runs their operations.”

High-Performance Carrier Ethernet OAM

To overcome the management challenge, the WebNMS Carrier Ethernet OAM solution employs 1) pre-built MEF object models to support standards-based equipment and 2) the extensible WebNMS object model, which can be mapped to support custom equipment. Built on top of the WebNMS Framework, the WebNMS Carrier Ethernet OAM solution features a distributed architecture and integration with OSS systems to deliver a highly scalable, highly available and cost effective solution.

The WebNMS Carrier Ethernet OAM solution gives service providers better control over their networks with flow-through automation, real-time QoS performance and bandwidth monitoring that accelerate time-to-market and ensure customer Service Level Agreements (SLAs) are met. The new solution includes:

  • Auto-Discovery – WebNMS Carrier Ethernet OAM solution automatically discovers switches, ports and E-line/E-Lan services. Logical elements like services, UNIs, endpoints and profiles are also captured by the discovery filter. These objects can be seen both under the Network Database list view and a Carrier Ethernet Physical Map.
  • Provisioning – The user interface enables point-and-click provisioning of Ethernet services and OAM profiles. Logical elements like services, endpoints, UNIs, NNIs and Ports can be added. Bandwidth profile, performance profile, an RFC2544 profile and CFM profile can be added, and the same can be associated to endpoints of a service.
  • Class of Service (CoS) – Flows allow for testing of throughput, latency and jitter. The network can be engineered for different traffic priorities. Point-and-click configuration, activation and monitoring of RFC2544 tests as well as threshold definitions and notification reception are supported.
  • Performance – Monitoring and health checking include real-time reporting on service and network performance metrics, port and EVC utilization, transmission errors, and QoS thresholds. Historical reporting can be viewed, exported or sent to an OSS interface. KPI dashboards, graphs and charts display attributes like delay, frame loss, jitter and availability.
  • Fault Management – Carrier Ethernet traps from multiple vendors such as RFC2544FdAlarm and RFC2544JitterAlarm are parsed and correlated into meaningful events and alarms. Ethernet devices that do not implement SNMP can also be configured and monitored via CLI commands.
  • Northbound OSS Integration – Attributes and object models can exposed to an OSS interface via SOAP/XML, SNMP or CORBA.
