Network management system eases configuration of modems

18 May 2005 Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

Satel is offering an effective way to control, adjust, and monitor a modem network. The Satel Network Management System (NMS) is the tool to use when one needs to check the status of the data network, or when it is essential to re-configure the modems, which monitor the power grid. No longer is it necessary to individually check every single modem on the spot, as the Satel NMS helps one monitor and update the configuration, without leaving the desk, says Satel.

The Network Management System is a program for managing Satelline radio-modem networks. With the aid of this program, the network can be managed, monitored, and configured remotely and centralised from a central location. Adjusting the parameters or changing the monitored attributes can be done effortlessly via a computer and every modem does not need to be individually reprogrammed. The program can be a considerable asset, especially when used in a large network consisting of several modems or more.

The Satel NMS requires a personal computer running Microsoft Windows, and a network using Satelline-3AS NMS radio modems. A special NMS interface is required to connect the modem to the computer running the net monitoring program. The substation modems do not require any additional equipment to run this system.

Invisible and efficient

Satel NMS software does not affect the normal operation of the modem, as the data traffic it sends is 'invisible' to the other applications in use and the traffic protocols do not get crossed. The NMS may, however, slightly affect the timing of the data transfer, in spite of the minimal amount of bandwidth the application uses. If the network is idle, the NMS-software can be used in offline mode that provides the program with full use of the entire bandwidth. This enables accelerated testing and configuration of the network. The NMS requires only a small amount of bandwidth because it communicates with compact identifiers. The identifier system enables the full regulation of the modems and ensures compatibility with future models.

Using the Satel NMS software is straightforward, claims Satel. When the network of modems is being installed, the modem settings are programmed uniformly, after which the entire network can be configured from a central location. Alarm settings and other parameters can be altered effortlessly. The graphical net-designing tool makes adding modems and links easily. Once a new modem has been added to the network, the settings and routing information is automatically sent to it.
