Data summarisation why/how is it done?


Raw data isnt normally stored for more than a couple of weeks Reporting on raw data can be very slow, depending on the report (e.g. 1-year-PLMN) Data mostly summarised in time and network dimension Reporter stores summaries on the plain network element counters, enabling very flexible KPI management Storage periods of summarised data is configurable to measurement level optimising storage capacity Busy hour summarisations based upon certain defined busy-hour criteria Further summarisations e.g. monthly level, quarterly, region-based are also possible

NetAct Reporter Introduction OSSREP/ 6-121277 v 4.0 en / 13 May 2005 / Bettina Baacke

NetAct supports Open & standard compliant interfaces which are following selected standards and specifications published by major standardization bodies and industry forums. Nokia currently sees the 3G Partnership Program (3GPP) as the most relevant industry forum for its technology domain in mobile networks. Therefore, the relevant specifications of the 3GPP Release 4 CORBA solution set have been selected as the basis for the standard compliant Nokia NetAct open interfaces. In addition, the OSS through Java (OSS/J) initiative is seen as an important forum since Nokia believes, that the results produced by this forum will greatly increase the Next Generation OSS (NG-OSS) concept launched by TMF. While 3GPP will help in creating the technology domain, specific and standardized south- and northbound interfaces, the OSS/J initiative with the NG-OSS framework will help in formulating standardized interfacing policies to other directions and systems. The operator processes of service assurance (fault & performance monitoring and reporting) and network development (radio configuration management) are within the functional focus of these interfaces. A standard compliant interface is preferably used to integrate 3rd party 2G and 3G mobile systems into NetAct.

Measurement Data Export Functionality


After the measurement data collection processes in UMA have transferred the data files to NetAct, The measurement data is parsed and optionally filtered. Filtering is based on measurement types, for example. The parsed and filtered data is sent to the Measurement Data Export. The export functionality writes the data into a specified directory, where it can be used by 3rd party applications or network management systems. The data cleanup process deletes the old files from the directory after a set storing time or based on disk usage.
