Net Surveillance Presentation

Maintenance engineers can securely access the network view from literally "anywhere" that Internet access is available. They can also monitor, diagnose, and troubleshoot remotely with simple to use scripts.

  • PC based T1 and E1 probes that collect physical and line level status and performance information. The Intrusive and Non-intrusive "probes" for TDM networks are deployed at strategic locations in a network. They can transmit and collect voice, data, protocol, statistics, and performance information. These probes can relay information to a central / distributed Network Management System (NMS).

  • A "T1 E1 J1 Switch" for non-intrusive monitoring or intrusive diagnostics; The switch is "fail safe" during power disruptions and USB controlled by the PC that houses the probes.

  • The NetSurveyorWeb™ for T1E1 Physical Layer provides an instant overall graphical view of the health of the TDM network with drill down to individual lines; secure access through WEB; remote monitoring and diagnostics to troubleshoot any T1 E1 line; and a central database and applications for controlling, collecting, and analyzing the information provided by the various probes.

Using NetSurveyorWeb™ for T1E1 Physical Layer

Using any browser-capable-device, you can access the results from anywhere in the world. When you point your browser to the Application Server URL, the following page will be displayed.


Status

The LINK STATUS menu feature displays physical and data link status with Sync Loss, Carrier Loss and MTP layer status for all the available probes across the network.

  • The Historical icons indicate previous link errors of the probes which are rectified currently.
  • Sync Loss, Carrier Loss, Blue Alarm, Yellow Alarm, and AIS displays as a green check mark  , on (1) is displayed as red-cross  .
  • Click on the check mark  or the cross mark to view the alarm log. The log provides details about the alarm type, alarm condition, port, timeslot, and the timestamp at which the alarm occurred.
  • Each record can be expanded to obtain individual link information.

Case Study – GL's NMS Deployment at the United States Postal Service (USPS)

USPS outlined a request to replace existing test equipment and stressed that consideration must be taken to make the transition to the new equipment as smooth as possible. A “plug and play” system, very comparable to the existing system was carefully designed.

GL's system for the USPS was designed to provide T1 and LAN testing and monitoring as illustrated in the figure above. The system comprised of intrusive and non-intrusive line monitoring solutions. Salient features include -

  • TDM Monitoring Solution monitors 600 T1 lines and over 100 LANs monitored
  • SS7 & ISDN Monitoring Solution monitors 52 T1 E1 ISDN & SS7 with Voiceband Traffic
  • SS7 Monitoring Solution monitors 56 T1 SS7 - still growing
  • Customizable views per site, per link, per problem
  • Real-time and historical alarm displays
  • Intrusive T1 BER testing using T1E1 Switch
  • Quick T1 E1 J1 Switch hardware development
  • Customized software at probe and Webserver locations
