Network Management Module

Network Management module


The SPEED-NMS module is the central management hub of the SPEED-CARRIER system. Configuration and monitoring of integrated modules are performed by a web-interface (Web GUI), SNMP or Command Line Interface. Using the corresponding Pan Dacom Direkt‘s MIB table the SPEED-CARRIER can be integrated into existing SNMP based management systems. With extensive monitoring features (such as transceivers RX-/TX-level, temperature etc.) the system status can be analyzed while in use. In the event of a change in actual status SNMP traps are sent. Furthermore the SPEED-NMS module supports an intuitive web interface which encrypts all data transfers (HTTPS). This enables an easy configuration and provides a consolidated overview of the entire system. For quick troubleshooting all slots and ports are color-coded within the web interface according to their status. In addition an „Active Alarms List“ is available which shows an overview of all the critical states. All alarms are stored in an alarm history, which identifies inactive alarms subsequently. Individual port labels enable a fast assignment of errors to a client or service. Physical access to the SPEED-NMS module is provided by a RS232 interface or an integrated 4-port Ethernet switch supporting two 10/100BaseTX and two SFP ports


  • FCAPS compliant management system
  • Multi-vendor solution
  • Active monitoring by thresholds and reports
  • Server/Client structure (optional web client)
  • Technical or alternatively service view for quick customer identification
  • Alarm filter per node or by priority with alarm escalation
  • SNMPv1, v2c or v3 management
  • User-friendly and intuitive web interface (HTTP/HTTPS)
  • RADIUS user authentication
  • SSHv2 incl. SCP or Telnet access
  • Port based alarm lock (time controlled alarm activation)
  • Configuration storage and software update of all slots via NMS module

Remote Management:

A connection to the remote site can be established via an in-band channel of an amplifier, a TDM card or using an own CWDM or DWDM wavelength for the management information. The integrated Ethernet switch is of particular interest when additional network units are to be managed by Ethernet at a location where a xWDM system is installed. As illustrated below, the Ethernet management port of a network unit can be connected directly to a switch port of the SPEED-NMS module. So data together with all SPEED-CARRIER management information is transmitted using a dedicated wavelength. No additional tranponder module is needed.
