Performance management challenges


Data analysis End-to-end Multi-vendor

A user needs to see a high level monitoring view but also be able to drill into the details for troubleshooting To be confident with the analysis a user needs to be sure the data availability and integrity is high

As interdependence between network domains increases it is no longer feasible to analyse a piece of the network in isolation Without a tool that provides and end-to-end view significant manual work is required to troubleshoot and report on the network

With typically 15 or more vendors in a network managing all the vendor specific tools is costly and time consuming Having multiple tools makes it difficult to get an aligned view of performance across vendors without significant manual work

2012 AIRCOM International Ltd

Addressing the challenges


with OPTIMA
A Performance Management system that allows you to:
Reliably load network performance data Store multi-vendor, multi-technology PM data on a single database Analyse PM data using flexible queries and graphs Drill down/up/across on data to find root causes to problems Create custom reports, performance alarms and threshold crossing alerts A platform for Radio, Core, TX, IP and Fixed networks A highly configurable and flexible system that allows easy integration to many 3rd party sources and reporting solutions

SNMP Alarm Forwarding


Requires the Alarms module to work


An SNMP Agent provides an outgoing interface for alarms and is compliant with X.733 (ITU Alarm reporting standard). External SNMP clients (such as a fault management system) can request information about alarms in the database.

The SNMP Agent can send SNMP TRAPS to external SNMP clients (forward alarms to a fault management system).

Sandbox overview

User development area for prototyping analysis solutions Create data tables, materialized views, views, private synonyms and database links through the OPTIMA client Elevated rights allow users to develop functions and procedures within their Sandbox storage, access to the rest of the system remains read-only outside the OPTIMA client

Reduces impact on production environment and prevents prototypes bringing down the system
Dedicated and self contained storage area allocated by system administrators to individual users Automatic expiry of objects, configurable based on the type of object and user
2012 AIRCOM International Ltd

42

Sandbox administration

Monitor and manage all Sandbox objects created by Sandbox users Manage storage allocation for all Sandbox users

Manage expiry options for Sandbox objects to ensure storage is released from old objects and ensure objects in regular use are promoted to the production environment and managed properly, i.e. monitored, maintained, backed up etc
Manage user promotion requests; rejecting, accepting and implementing.

Vendor Interfaces management


2012 AIRCOM International Ltd

Vendor Interfaces
An OPTIMA interface refers to unique feed of data from an external south bound system into the AIRCOM OPTIMA database for reporting and analysis. Standard interfaces are deployed using standard off the shelf AIRCOM mediation and database program components.

OPTIMA interfaces are developed by AIRCOMs dedicated Vendor Interfaces team.

A library of approximately 150 unique interfaces are available off the shelf.
New interfaces are being developed continuously and versions are updated as vendors release new versions. Interfaces are priced according to a complexity matrix comprising of the following: Data model Standard reports and modules required Standard KPI set required Parser Loader Summaries required Busy hour summaries required
2012 AIRCOM International Ltd

55

Interfaces - Components
Each interface consists of the following components
Component Parser Description Interface specific parser used to parse the data from the vendor proprietary format to a standard .csv file An instance of the OPTIMA installation tool template covering the data model for a specific interface AIRCOMs standard KPIs, reports, modules and module combinations for a specific interface

OIT Template

KPIs, reports and modules

Mediation and database programs

Standard off the shelf mediation and database components used to deploy an interface. Except the parser all the programs are non-specific to an interface

OPTIMA Licensing model


2012 AIRCOM International Ltd

AIRCOM OPTIMA licensing summary


In terms of licensing the AIRCOM OPTIMA solution can be divided into two distinct parts: client and interfaces The AIRCOM OPTIMA client is licensed based on the size of the network which is measured by the number of elements managed in the loaded interfaces Additionally, it is possible to buy Productivity Packs for the client side. These packs are licensed in the same way as the AIRCOM OPTIMA client.

The AIRCOM OPTIMA interfaces are licensed around the number and types of interfaces loading into the data warehouse
AIRCOM grants to the Customer a non-exclusive and non-transferable licence to use the Licensed Material in the Territory during the Licence Period for the internal business purposes of the Customer

Interface Sizing Notes


*Raw table is a direct mapping of one or many interface measurement objects/classes/groups. ** The size of an interface could increase if there is higher technological complexity of functional analysis, data collection, data interpretation etc. High complexity involves: a) Multiple network elements presenting in a domain.e.g.: PSCORE interface including SGSN and GGSN CSCORE interface including MSS/MGW/HLR/RCP And/or

b) Functional complexity: -If the NE has multiple functionalities then the presentation/analysis is complex. e.g.: IPCORE interface like Multimedia core platform having functionality GGSN, SGSN, PDSN/FA,HA, ASN Gateway,Session Control Manager,ePDG, MME, SGW, PGW, Security Gateway
***Hourly summary tables will also be created where data is sub hourly e.g. 15minutes.
