It gives access to the repeaters Control Module and allows for on-line configuration of the repeaters. The AEM is a complete operations and maintenance centre for repeater networks. Network operators can use this information to optimise the network based on real net work utilisation. axell WIRELESS efficient network supervision with many Benefits Central Management All repeaters in a network can be managed from a central location. The RMC can be used localy on site.this includes both base stations and repeaters. or remotely over a modem connection. A logical tree shows the relationship and hierarchical build-up between the network elements . Geographical maps describes the network in a different but yet useful way. All repeater parameters can be read. RmC – Repeater maintenance Console The RMC is an online software program that simplifies control and installation of repeaters. Aem Axell Wireless element manger service and maitenance of repeater networks. which can be a valuable tool when it comes to network planning and trouble shooting.

Alarm sources indicate if faults have occurred in any of the repeaters and an extensive reporting tool enable optimised planning of the network’s coverage. In the tree structure the relationship between network elements. axell W I R E L ENetwork Optimisation SS The AEM can be used as a tool for network operators to optimise their networks. Both applications are Windows™ based and run on Windows 2000 and Windows XP. The repeaters send traffic reports to the AEM at regular intervals. The installation procedure is quick and simple and repeaters are integrated into the AEM application once they are installed on site. Each repeater can be monitored separately or the whole network can be presented in one overview chart. The repeaters are integrated into the network and controlled by the AEM. These reports are stored in a data base and can be monitored and analysed at any time. Information about where in the network.AEM and RMC .

It allows configuration. The alarms can be structured and displayed in different manners for example according to repeater ID. An overview screen can be designed to display the overall alarm situation for a whole network. The Axell Wireless Element Manager is a software tool for operation and maintenance of a repeater network. The user interface allows management of users. These windows can be moved around to suit every user’s preferences. In this way the AEM serves as a good tool for maintenance activities and planning. geographical and structural overviews. repeater type. The AEM opens up several windows depending on the activities at hand. Alarm thresholds and traffic reports can be configured. etc.efficient Alarm management The AEM logs all alarms for the repeaters in the network. axell WIRELESS axell WIRELESS 2 . using the Aem status.
axell WIRELESS network Configuration A network is configured by adding repeaters to it. external alarms. The user access levels to the connected repeaters can be controlled from the AEM. etc. placing them on a geographical or logical map and also placing them structurally in the system and finally by configuring the AEM repeaters settings. report intervals. 3 . sent messages log.multi-user Functionality The multi-user solution supports simultaneous use for up to 5 clients.

Complete Repeater management A repeater can be fully monitored and controlled via the AEM. but need no other configuration. The structure shows the inter-relationships and can be divided into regions to reflect the actual layout of the network. The repeaters and the base stations in the network are called network elements. uplink and downlink peak power. etc. In the status window parameters such as channel numbers. All users that are logged into the AEM will receive information from the system regarding all events and changes made in the system by other users. Other windows display hardware configuration. These settings are phone numbers. axell WIRELESS element structure The Element Explorer screen displays a tree-structure breakdown view of the network. Base stations can also be included in the network. They can be configured geographically and structurally in the AEM. alarm log. traffic and heartbeat log.

The maps can show a part of a region. The cause of the alarm is clearly indicated. Traffic Monitoring Depending on type of repeater the traffic through the repeater can be monitored. They also send alarms to the AEM in case of a failure.maps The AEM has an advanced feature for handling geographic maps. axell WIRELESS axell Alarms and heartbeats All repeaters in a network send heartbeats to the AEM at regular intervals. They can be organised so that the users can zoom down from the top level to an infinite number of sub-maps where the network elements are displayed. TCP/IP or SNMP traps. Each traffic log contains 96 inter vals of 15 minutes.or bmp-format. The Alarm Log function displays information about all alarms that have been sent to the AEM from a selected repeater. When the cursor is moved over a network element on a map an information box with data about the repeater or base station is displayed. a whole region or a country. There is also a full alarm search function available. The repeaters’ geographical positions on the maps are defined by GPS co-ordinates. By clicking on the network symbol the Repeater/Base station Information function is activated and access is given to more detailed information. the severity of the alarm and whether it has been acknowledged or not. The element is displayed on all maps covering this specific location. All traffic data is collected in a traffic log where the data can be displayed in numbers or in a graphical from.

the repeater firmware is automatically updated to the latest version in use. either via a RS232 interface directly into the repeater or via remote access via modem. Traffic monitoring via the RMC. The tool is used primarily at commissioning of repeaters on site. input and output power levels are updated continuously which makes the RMC an excellent help for example at antenna installations and other adjustments in the system. All repeater parameters can be displayed and all settings in the repeater can be made via the RMC. No commands and attributes need to be used. Dynamic information. but all settings are made through clicking. The RMC communicates with one repeater at a time. such as traffic utilization. axell WIRELESS 6 .
