Overview of SDMT-Background

Service Data Management Toolkit (SDMT) is used to migrate subscriber


data from devices of Huawei and other vendors.

SingleSDBTOOL SDMT, a tool provided in USC 3.1 solution converts data


format and import subscriber data to the in-memory database.

SingleSDBTOOL SDMT integrates the data import function (used in the


Linux operating system) and data format conversion function (used in
the Windows operating system) and provides a more user-friendly client
for operations.

SingleSDBTOOL SDMT adds license control.

Overview of SDMT-Converting Data Format

The SDMT converts subscriber data in the format of other vendors to


subscriber data in Huawei standard format. The tool functions like a
platform. The information for processing the conversion, such as the
mapping between the format of other vendors and Huawei standard
format are exported to the SDMT through configuration files.

The SDMT server runs on the Linux operating system of the OMU board
and the SDMT client runs on the Windows operating system of a
computer connected to the OMU. The SDMT client transfers the original
data and the configuration file to the SDMT server for conversion. After
converting the data format, the SDMT server returns the converted data
to the SDMT client.

Overview of SDMT-Importing Data

The SDMT processes the mapping between data and fields in the database
recorded in the configuration file to import subscriber data and authentication
data in Huawei standard format into the in-memory database of the HLR.

The SDMT server runs on the Linux operating system of the OMU board and the
SDMT client runs on the Windows operating system of a computer connected to
the OMU. The SDMT client transfers the original data and the configuration file
to the SDMT server for data import. After completing the processing, the SDMT
encapsulates the processed data into messages and sends the messages to the
DTL module, which then inserts data in to the in-memory database.
