UHP NMS system is shipped pre-installed in a server running Linux. NMS is traditionally collocated with the network Hub however availability of Web interface allows location at any alternate place. The system provides multi-user, multi-language interface and supports multiple Virtual Network Operators (VNO) sharing common network infrastructure.
The user interface focuses the operator’s attention on the most important events in the system, and also provides the operator with an exhaustive information needed for analysis and troubleshooting. By selecting most suitable settings for the display, the operator can display the information in the desired format: logs, graphs and/or tables. All key network characteristics are displayed on a single page, known as the dashboard.
UHP Smart Redundancy facilitates self-healing architecture for a single VSAT Hub and also for multiple geographically diverse (redundant) Hubs. Architecture of the Hub with Smart Redundancy is not different from a traditional Hub architecture, but all the controllers are universal and can assume any role.
The NMS continuously analyzes status of the network. If any problems arise, it re-assigns the role of a failed device to one of the redundant controllers. The re-assignment makes use of the same software key that was earlier used in the failed device. That way the software is always in use without any downtime.
