DAISY 2G Swap: Assumptions
DAISY supports the daily swap activities for a “parcel” scenario, where sites are swapped in “clusters”. At every “cluster swap”, DAISY calculates parameters using internal mapping rules, fixes all the incoming/out coming neighbors, and generates the proper data for the NetAct. The tool is able to manage a general M:N BSC swap scenario, and It can be used for GEMINI (providing input as “.asc” ex-Siemens DB in ACL format) or in Multivendor projects (using a general purpose Excel template). DAISY works together with Plan Editor to generate data for the NetAct. After the initial configuration of Plan Editor there is no need to access it again, since DAISY is able to directly interwork with the tool to upload the generated cluster plan and to export it toward NetAct. DAISY 2G Swap Assumptions - BSC must be already integrated to the Core Network; - BSC must be already integrated to NetAct, so that plan provisioning is possible; - BSC, as a logical object, must be already created in RNW DB; - DAISY doesn’t provide all parameters needed to build up the objects, but only the relevant ones: the “default” parameter values for each objects have to be already defined in Plan Editor’s templates. The PE templates will be referred by DAISY, when importing data into PE.

MUSA-DAISY Startup: Startup of MUSA
DAISY is a module of MUSA tool. To access DAISY it is needed to run MUSA and to select a MUSA Project.

Note: The features described in this slide-set are related to the version of DAISY.

MUSA-DAISY Startup: Project creation
A Project can represent a BSC to be swapped, a group of them, a Town, an area, etc. At each DAISY project corresponds a folder in the MUSA\Projects directory, where the tool will search for input (by default) and will store all its output data. The first time you run the tool two choices are available: - use the Demo Project already present - create a new empty project, to store your input and output files generated by DAISY.

To create an empty project, when the “Select Project” dialog appears, press the “New Project” button… …and type your project name
