LCT Overview
In this chapter, you will learn about:
Basic concepts of the LCT. Functions and features of the ZXONM E300 LCT.

Basic Concepts
The LCT is short for Local Craft Terminal. The following describes relation between the ZXONM E300 LCT and NEs as well as LCT composition. 1. Relation among the ZXONM E300 LCT, the main EMS, and NEs Figure 1 shows relation among the ZXONM E300 LCT, the main EMS, and NEs.

Confidential and Proprietary Information of ZTE CORPORATION

ZXONM E300 (V3.18) LCT Users Manual

The ZXONM E300 LCT can gain local and remote access to NEs. It implements commissioning and maintenance of a single NE and monitors working status of NEs. 2. System composition Composition of the ZXONM E300 LCT is the same as that of the ZXONM E300 marked with dashed lines in Figure 1. The ZXONM E300 LCT integrates the GUI, the Manager, and the Database (which is not displayed in Figure 1). They are installed in a same computer, providing minor NE management. Functions of the GUI, the Manager, and the Database in the ZXONM E300 LCT are listed as follows: i. Manager It is also called a server. The Manager sends management messages to NEs and receives announcements from NEs. The Manager stores all the network management data in the Database, for example, basic data of the system management, the configuration management, and the alarm maintenance. The Manager of the EMS sets operation rights of the ZXONM E300 LCT. As shown in Figure 1, the Manager marked with dashed lines decides rights of the LCT to configure and control NEs. ii. GUI It is also called a client. The GUI provides graphic user interfaces and converts the requirements of user management into the messages in the internal formats. Then the client delivers them to the Manager. Operation interfaces of the ZXONM E300 LCT are consistent with the ZXONM E300 GUI. iii. Database The Database is used to query information about interfaces and management function modules, store information and process data consistency. For the ZXONM E300 LCT, the Database is an SQL Server database.

Functions and Features


1. Applies the SQL Server as support for the Database. 2. The rights of to manage or control NEs must be granted by the main EMS. 3. The style of LCT operation interfaces is consistent with that of the ZXONM E300 operation interfaces. 4. The LCT manages a single NE only. 5. The LCT does not enable you to configure many NEs, such as configuring Multiplex Section Protection, NE connections, and VLANs. The LCT does not provide the function of uploading network data,

2 Confidential and Proprietary Information of ZTE CORPORATION

Chapter 1 LCT Overview

uploading comparison, and downloading. In addition, the LCT does not implement management of security, reports, and services. 6. The main EMS decides the number of NEs accessing the LCT. Without EMS authorization, NEs only allow LCT with a default manager ID to log in and perform management. In other words, only one valid LCT can exist. 7. By default, the LCT manages up to five NEs. By changing the environment variable, you can change the number of managed NEs. 8. The LCT does not participate in main/slave switchover of the EMS.

Precautions
1. LCT runs abnormally because the virtual memory of the laptop is too low. On a low-configuration laptop, the Windows operating system may run abnormally due to the insufficient virtual memory. For example, when the number of NEs is great, login may costs a long time and you may fail in logging in to the database. To ensure normal running of the Windows operating system, expand the size of the virtual memory. 2. Methods used by the LCT EMS to back up and restore data There are two methods for the LCT EMS to back up and restore data. Select the DB backup/restore menu. On the LCT operation window, select System -> System Data Management -> DB Backup or Restore, and then set the DB Backup/Restore dialog box.
