VideoIPath provides alarm monitoring functionality for integrated network elements and correlation with ongoing services to identify potentially service affecting issues quickly. The system may be used on its own or integrated into another operations support system.
Status information is typically retrieved from network elements using regular polling and notification mechanisms (e.g. SNMP traps). Details concerning how status information is retrieved for a specific device is captured in the driver for the device type.
A dashboard provides a centralized overview of the operational status of all equipment in the network. The dashboard is automatically populated based on detected equipment and the user is able to customize multiple dashboards for different parts of the network (e.g. one dashboard per site).
Alarms are presented in an alarm management user interface that allows the user to manage current alarms and browse or search for historic alarms recorded in the log. Alarms are automatically correlated per service allowing the user to view alarms related to a specific service.
