8.     EMS SPECIFICATIONS AND FUNCTIONAL REQUIREMENTS
Telecom Management Network Architecture: The Telecom
Management Network Architecture for WiMAX shall be based on the five
Layer TMN Model of the ITU(T). The TMN hierarchy is pyramidal from top
to bottom consisting of Business Management Layer (BML), Service
Management Layer (SML), Network Management Layer (NML), Element
Management Layer (EML) and the Network Element Layer(NEL). In the
WiMAX based solution, bottom two Layers are taken into account
while the top three Layers are part of existing OSS/BSS. The bidder
shall commit to provide full support to all activities that relate to successful
implementation of the TMN model and providing necessary interface
information. The integration with the top three layers will be the
responsibility of the successful bidders.
An Element Management System (EMS) shall be supplied which shall
follow the TMN architecture as per ITU M.3010 standard. The EMS shall
provide all FCAPS functionality and web based management capabilities
for the supplied solution, including:
• Fault management
• Configuration management

• Security management

The EMS shall have open North bound interfaces such as ITU Q3 or
TMF-CORBA.SNMP and shall be capable of integration with other
standards based NMS systems in BSNL . The interfaces towards/ from
Network elements may be SNMP ver2 or better.

The EMS shall use Open APIs and standard interfaces. Details of
interfaces and APIs will be supplied as part of documentation to be
supplied, by the Vendor to BSNL for enabling integration of the NMS/
Billing/ Accounting Systems with higher level OSS/ Billing system. The
Bidder shall provide time bound support in such integration effort of BSNL
for the entire period of the contract (inclusive of AMC).

Device management: The offered solution shall provide the following
functionalities:

                                      21
  information about distributed Network Elements supplied by both
  successful bidders.
The functions of bottom two layers are as follows:

8.1 Network Element Layer (NEL): The different Network Elements
      involved in the WiMAX are CPE, Base Station, ASN Gateway etc.
8.2 Element Management Layer (eML): For each group of Network
      Element (NE) there will be element Management System (EMS).
      One such group in WiMAX system will consists of CPEs, associated
      base stations and the concerned ASN Gateway. The role of EMS is
      to control and manage all aspects of the domain such as Fault,
      Configuration, Accounting, Performance and Security (FCAPS) as
      defined by ITU-T and to ensure maximum usage of the devices
      resources. The EMS shall support FCAPS as per TEC standard
      SD/NMS-02/01. The EMS communicates with NE on either vendor
      proprietary interface or standard interface like SNMP, CMISE, TL1.
      These EMSs inturn communicate via open standard, northbound
      interface (SNMP/Java API/ CORBA API/XML API) to NMS/PMS of
      EXISTING OSS/BSS, which is in Network Management Layer
      (NML). The EMS performs the following functions:
8.2.1 Configuration management: Menu-driven hierarchy based
operations on the Network elements through all necessary commands or
operations to configure network components shall be provided. Tasks
shall be able to be characterized by either single command or scripts that
combine a sequence of commands to one compound task.

End user configuration and provisioning management: It shall be
possible to create, configure, provision and manage end users with
differentiated QoS requirements based on per user bandwidth allocation
etc. It shall be also possible to support QoS based service classes for
applications such as voice and multimedia.

Software Management: For remote Installation, Upgrade & Correction of
the NEs, including downloading of Patch application for SW corrections in
the network and backup on a monthly basis.

Alarm and Event Handling: All alarms from all network elements being
managed shall be received and logged. The alarms shall be visible in
various ways e.g. displayed in alarm lists on the screens of defined
operators; printouts may be automatically generated on specific devices
for further treatment.

                                    22
Performance Management: Performance management of WiMAX sites:
Load over NEs/ sites/ zones, number of active user connections, sessions
with detailed parameters, session terminations, access point restarts,
positioning events, access denied, Online site usage monitoring etc.

Report Generation: The EMS shall be capable of providing the following
reports:
• Inventory reports, including current version and status
• Performance reports, by different time cuts (hour, day, week, month,
   etc)
• Configuration reports
• Performance characteristics over a specified period of time

System administration: Includes all customer related system and
account management tasks such as:
• Addition/change/configuration/removal            of          accounts
  (username/password, etc) into the database
• Addition/change/configuration/removal of NEs
• Addition/change/configuration/verification/removal of sites.

Operator creation and access rights management
• Network manager shall be able to create operators with users I/D and
  passwords. He shall also be able to control and limit operators’
  authorization, rights and privileges. Network manager is an account
  with full control, rights and privileges.
• Access control procedures shall allow classification of operators
  groups with common access rights characteristics with possibilities to
  restrict and extend the common access rights for single operators.
• Restriction of access to network elements and/or to logs shall be
  possible.
• All messages between EMS and the NEs shall be logged.
• It shall be possible to evaluate and trace the Operator, who initiated the
  message.
• The system shall block the access from a local or remote terminal after
  receipt of consecutive 5 wrong logins/ passwords and unauthorized
  commands.

8.3      Network Management Layer (NML): The NML basically has
        three primary functions.
8.3.1   Integrated Fault Management and Root-Cause analysis of
        multivendor and multitechnology networks. This function is taken
                                    23
          care by NMS of EXISTING OSS/BSS which is HP OpenView.
8.3.2      Integrated, single screen, end-to-end service provisioning of
          multivendor and multitechnology networks. This function is taken
          care by PMS of existing OSS/BSS, which is Metasolve’s ASAP.
8.3.3     Integration Layer between the eML and the SML; This role is to
          bring together information from the EMSs that support it, and
          then integrate, correlate and summarize that information, so as to
          pass on relevant information to Service Management Systems
          (SMSs) in the SML; in the reverse direction, the NML receives
          information from the SML, processes it and passes on relevant
          commands and data to the appropriate eMS; the eMS then
          sends specific command to the NE. The EMS shall support
          SNMP/ Java API/ CORBA API / XML for communicating with
          NMS so that complete management of the network is
          efficient.

8.4        Number of Network elements handled by each EMS should be
          at least 0.25 million scalable to 1 million. EMS hardware shall be
          supplied with complete disk/database redundancy.

          and expandable to minimum 4 processors, 64 bit, RISC/ CISC
          based system with at least 1.0 GHz clock, 8 GB RAM, 1GB
          Cache Memory.


8.6                    Client Workstation Specifications: The minimum
           specifications are as under:
        P-IV or later with 80GB HDD, 17” color TFT display, 512 MB RAM,
        Keyboard, Mouse, Ethernet interfaces (10/100 Mbps) with industry
        standard Operating system like Unix, Windows etc. with GUI.
