Network Alarm Reporting Systems (NARS)

Total Network visibility exposes ailing and failing equipment.

NARS combines fault detection, remote access and datascoping in a cost-effective, modular package.

NARS (Network Alarm Reporting Systems)
NARS is a central fault management system that provides end-to- end network visibility. Attached to communication equipment at hub locations, NARS fault management capabilities detect and report signal level alarms in real-time. Integrated remote access and control facilities make NARS the perfect tool for attended or unattended sites. Using NARS, the Network Manager can rapidly isolate the ailing and failing components of the network and maximize efficiency.

Automated fault detection
Using interactively defined conditions, the monitor function detects and reports all signal level alarms related to remote equipment. Audible alarms and link identification error messages rapidly isolate problem areas. NARS access capabilities enable diagnostics to be performed centrally for quick problem resolution without the costly dispatch of technical support personnel.

Datascoping of remote links
Datascoping facilities at the control centre is a feature unique to Omicron's product series. Without additional circuit or equipment, the Network Manager can view and analyze Rx and Tx data of remote links to determine protocol related faults.

Omicron's modular architecture
Omicron's wide range of data communication products is based on an innovative modular design. Reliable products can be mixed and matched in 19'" racks. Up to 32 racks with 16 interface cards can be combined for a cost-effective, space saving solution. The Omicron modular concept provides a migration path for network growth by building on investments already in place.

Easy to use operator interface
A menu driven operator interface supported by an on-line help facility provides access and control of network configuration information, alarms, trends, link status, etc. Refer to the SureNeT brochure for more information.

By combining monitoring, datascoping and access function, Omicron provides the Network Manager with another powerful fault isolation system to enhance performance and reduce costs.
