Loop-iNET Intelligent Network Management System
Loop-iNET Intelligent Network
Management System
Features
Description
 Web based application following design of thin client
computing
Loop-iNET, based on the scalable and modularized
architecture, is a set of intelligent network management
software programs which can be taken as both Element
Management Layer (EML) and Network Management
Layer (NML) based the Telecommunications
Management Network (TMN) model. This program is
flexibly designed to manage your network regardless of
size or complexity. You can add or remove any
component as you want without affecting operations of
the system. It provides a GUI (graphical user interface)
for the management of a communications network
containing Loop Telecom products.
 Windows style user desktop environment
 Supported browsers: Firefox; Internet Explorer (IE)
 Supported server platform: MS Windows, Linux
(CentOS)
 Database server: MySQL RDBMS
 Multi-language support (upon request)
 Automatic load balancing for the major components to
increase performance of iNET server
 Hot standby server redundancy with automatic failover to
provide high availability(HA) for the major system
components
 System access security with role-based user access
control. The access privilege can be customized through
any combination of operation functions and managed
NEs. User inherits privileges automatically from group
privilege
 System operation and user access log
 Multi-hierarchical subnet structure allows user to provide
multi-level network topology display
 SNMP based management system that supports SNMP
functions including commands, alarms, and statistics
gathering. Other protocol support includes Network Time
Protocol (NTP).
 Up to 100,000 Network Elements(NEs) and unlimited
concurrent user connection logged into the iNET server
 Network elements of same model with different versions
managed by iNET simultaneously
The workforce management is facilitated by the multiple
levels of login security, which provides the network
manager great flexibility of work assignment. The
hierarchical grouping feature, cities, buildings, and
rooms, allow rapid access to the desired network
element.
All SNMP provided functions are available in Loop-iNET.
This includes the execution of all commands, the
gathering of all statistics, and the display of all alarm
conditions in real time. The map and the reports can be
printed as well as viewed directly from the iNET.
By offering feature-rich functionalities, Loop-iNET
maximizes the network efficiency, minimizes the
operating costs and reduces the potential risks.
Moreover, it supports the protocols of SNMP, NTP, and
more (upon request). Customization adaptation into
different protocols is allowed and upon request.
 Node statistics data and alarm reports can be displayed
and saved in MS Excel format.
 Enriched topology management provides
zoom-in/zoom-out and drag-and-drop functionalities in
view, subnet view, link and NE panel status
 Alarm management that provides automatic suppressing
and notification via Email with advanced filtering system
 Build-in system monitoring and NE connectivity tool with
NE connectivity status for system administration purpose
 Robust and reliable design based on distributed system
architecture which provides flexible and scalable solution
for network expansions.
 Performance management shows current statistics for
the NEs and system
 Advanced optional functions:
-

 iNET Software Maintenance Agreement (SMA)
Purchase of the 1st year SMA is mandatory. Please specify how many years of iNET SMA you desire to purchase.
The iNET software upgrade/patches on existing functionality are only available within the maintenance period
purchased.
Note: Software maintenance packages are available only in yearly basis starting from date of purchase of iNET. The
price quoted for the new SMA applies only before the expiration of the current SMA.
iNET Type
Loop-iNET-SMA
Loop-iNET-RSMA
Description
Loop-iNET Annual Software Maintenance
- Access to software patches/upgrade,
including feature enhancements and major
new versions.
- 5x8 (GMT+8) field problem remote
diagnosis.
- 5x8 (GMT+8) consulting via e-mail, phone
call and IMs (Skype, MSN, …)
- Remote commencement of software
patching
Loop-iNET annual reinstatement of SMA
(software maintenance agreement).
Notes
 Purchase of the 1st year SMA is
mandatory.
 Please order the number of years of
SMA coverage you want to purchase.
 All remote support activities, if
purchased, are made possible through
remote supporting tools, such as VPN or
remote desktop. It’s the end customer’s
responsibility to provide all necessary
remote access connections and tools at
the customer side.
Since Loop-iNET software will keep evolving to 
support new plug-in cards and new features, it
is very important to maintain your maintenance
service and reserve your access in software
upgrade package. If the purchased SMA has 
expired, you need to extend the maintenance
service by reinstating your SMA and

purchasing RSMA for all prior unpaid year(s).
Customer with existing iNET running shall
reinstate any expired SMA before making any
new order of iNET software components and
services.
New purchase of iNET components and
services will NOT reinstate the expired
SMA automatically.
5x8 denotes Monday through Friday
from 9:00am to 5:00pm (GMT+8)
SMA will cover Loop-iNET Software only,
and will not cover problems in system
hardware, operating system platform,
network condition, and viruses.
It is mandatory to maintain valid SMA when
any customized functions are needed in the
later phases, a NRE charge might be required.
