Element Management Systemager
The objective of EMS is to provide four major functions for telecommunication operators:
• Fault Management (FM)
• Performance Management (PM)
• Configuration Management (CM)
• Security Management (SM)
The EMS Server is designed to provide all the configuration and maintenance functions for the communication device. The method to
access EMS Server functions is via CORBA protocol according OMG CORBA Specification. When a user loads EMS Client software and
sets up a link to the EMS Server, it will be possible to monitor and control all network devices via CORBA actions. EMS Server uses SNMP
Protocol to monitor and control the network devices via SET GET and TRAP SNMP actions.
The major tasks include:
1. Collect configuration information from SNMP Agents via SNMP protocol and send to them control commands to change their state.
2. Guarantee storage of all information in external database server
3. Transfer control and configuration data to and from client SW via CORBA
4. Organize and maintain control objects in database and client configuration constructions, which describe system.
5. Provide role access to mentioned above objects

By utilizing a modular design, a large variety of configurations may
be realized and the unit may be custom tailored for each specific
application.
CORBA Server
CORBA Name Service provides the ORB (Object Request Broker)
central component of CORBA. It encompasses the entire communication infrastructure necessary to identify and locate objects,
handle connection management, deliver data and is responsible
for communication of requests.
EMS server
EMS Server collects the information data from the specific SNMP
agents and keeps updating it to the SQL server via the JDBC (Java
DataBase Connectivity) driver.
SQL Server
SQL Server is the place where the EMS collected data is stored, The
database will store Alarm Trap and all informations.
CTC Union’s EMS is compatible with MS-SQL 2000, 2005 and MS-SQL
2005 Express.

Workstation-Clients
Workstations act as clients in the CORBA architecture. They provide
the JAVA applet GUI to monitor and control the agents at far end.
They also receive the Alarm Traps from the corresponding SNMP
AGENTS. Multiple workstations are allowed in this field.

Network Element Discovery
The EMS has a tool for automatically discovering SNMP
agents on the network. Simply enter an IP address range
and the discovery program will ping every IP address
looking for SNMP agents. Once discovered, the agents
can be selected and brought into the broker for polling.
Performance Monitoring
Device performance is plotted over time using
standard PM data such as ES, UAS, etc. PM data is
typically only available for PDH devices such as the
ETU01A and ERM01.
Alarms sent by E-mail & SMS
The EMS is capable of sending emails and or SMS text
messages to selected administrators when critical alarms
occur. Prompt notification of system problems aid in
getting problems in the network fixed in the shortest time
possible.
