Inventory / Configuration Management BOSS BROADCAST Manager inventory maintains real-time information of an entire broadcast network facility. It manages both physical (i.e. MUX) and logical (i.e. VLAN) assets of a broadcast network. The configuration management allows users an easy and flexible configuration of all components, metadata, and signals in the network.
Activation Engine The activation engine is a unique abstraction layer that takes the configuration sequence from inventory and communicates with devices or respective EMS using different protocols such as CORBA, XML, SNMP, Telnet, etc. The activation can be triggered by the event manager, or in case of a hardware-fault, it can be executed from the error correlation engine.
Fault Management – 100% Uptime The fault management feature allows for alarms to be grouped based on their origin/OID in “domains”. Domains allow for a sophisticated analysis of incidents in a large networks with thousands of traps. The Error Correlation Engine is capable of initiating a redundancy switching process in case of failure. This automation is based on Dimetis’ sophisticated algorithms that guarantee a services uptimes of up to 100%.
