CONSTELLATION

Overview

Managing Wireless Network Access Services

The EION network management system, Constellation, provides full TMN architecture. The implementation is a three - tier architecture, based on SNMP v2, RMI, Java, JDBC and other open interfaces.

    This provides simple integration of Constellation into existing management and billing systems of the service providers or adaptation to the specific requirements of the environment.

    Service provisioning is an important aspect for every network service provider. The Constellation provisioning system offers the ability to provide a broad portfolio of access services in a large scale deployment, suitable for residential and enterprise customers alike.

    Service provisioning through Constellation is supported for both StarMAX 16d and StarPlus based networks. EION Constellation network management system is a three-tier distributed client/server network management and provisioning system.

    In this architecture, all the data processing is implemented by the middle tier servers. All the data, gathered by Constellation is stored in a relational management/ provisioning database.

    Data contained in the database is available to other applications via NBI RMI interfaces. The managed information is structured according to different MIB tables, standard as well as proprietary MIBs.
