Very simple GUI Application with Secure Role-Based Access
Converge’s GUI helps streamline your network with an intuitive design that helps save time and simplifies operational procedures. Build for or service providers that need to be able to make simple updates or changes quickly and easily while delivering real-time services to customers.
Deep Discovery with Simple Navigation and Intuitive Point and Click Toolbar Menus
Converge™ EMS offers a powerful discovery mechanism to quickly discover devices based on a range of IP addresses along with deep discovery of all the attributes and services. Converge™ EMS provides a complete real-time topology view of your network with the ability to overlay devices on geographical maps. Devices can be grouped by sites in large network, thereby providing ease of management. Each menu provides the ability to drill down to get details.
Easily view Network Topology, Devices, Ports and Chassis with Context Menu
Provides customer map views with discovered NIDs, Switches, Services, E-Line,E-Lan, and EVCs. Converge™ provides a real-time, map based, view of your network for device inventory, with an easy to use comprehensive device Inventory hierarchy that is organized by Sites or Geographical/Logical Maps of your Network.
Pre-Provisioning and Zero Touch Provisioning For Simple Setup and Device Configuration
Converge™ EMS supports the full service life cycle including design, deployment and operation of end to end CE 2.0 services and devices. This also simplifies the configuration of many different attributes (like a VLAN or EVC) on multiple devices at same time. Converge’s ™ powerful Service Manager enables a granular service design to build and maintain a catalog of differentiated services that allow a quick and efficient end-to-end service provisioning, ultimately accelerating the time to revenue. With a simple connection, Converge™ automatically pushes all pre-set profiles, configuration info and software updates to the device ensuring an extremely quick service delivery to your customer.
Configuration Management for Service Design and Templates
Converge™ EMS provides a consolidated real-time Inventory view of all the managed devices and services in the network and the mapping between the two. Its advanced scheduling capability makes bulk upgrades and backups and restores on a large number of devices easy, thereby reducing OpEx. Converge™ EMS also provides a launch-point for device Web and CLI access. Services and devices are provisioned using an advanced multi-stage provisioning engine, which supports rapid turn-up and zero-touch provisioning. Its advanced pre-provisioning and zero-touch provisioning capabilities will enable carriers to quickly turn up new devices and services, reducing time-consuming administrative responsibilities, truck-rolls and operational costs.
Converge™ EMS provides an extremely effective Fault Management solution with pro-active fault identification, isolation and troubleshooting. Its real-time color-coded notifications and customizable dashboard make monitoring of large networks easy and intuitive. Alarms can be propagated to upper level NMS/OSS via North Bound Interfaces. Device traps and regular polling insure an always up to date view of all managed devices in the network. Customizable thresholds allow administrator to monitor for SLA violations and proactively respond to issues in the network. Its advanced filtering, sorting and reporting capabilities make monitoring and troubleshooting very easy thereby reducing service outages and improving service availability.
OAM & Performance Monitoring
Converge™ EMS allows for centralized real-time performance data collection and analysis to monitor customer SLAs. It supports the setting of performance thresholds of monitoring and trend analysis to identify issues before they become service affecting. Extensive graphical options allow ease of real-time and historical performance analysis and the performance dashboards allows easy monitoring with a customizable view of the performance data. Custom Performance reports can be generated with just a few clicks. The many of the key performance indicators (KPIs) are based on IEEE 802.3ah, 802.1ag and ITU-T .1731 measurements.
Converge™ allows for a simply integration and configuration with a service provider’s NMS/OSS API’s through northbound protocols like SNMP, MTOSI, CLI, Java, and SOAP. These standards based APIs allow for easy integration and are capable of sending event data / topology data/ performance data to a higher level OSS. This Northbound interface provides network topology, configuration retrieval, provisioning services, and facilitates the integration with higher layer NMS/OSS for fault management and flow through provisioning.
