geant Integrated Network Managment System

One of the major challenges NOCs face is the requirement to use a variety of systems to monitor their network, a problem made even bigger when a single team is responsible for every layer of a hybrid infrastructure, such as G√ČANT. Monitoring both the optical layer and the routing platform is a complex task and requires a significant number of people. Provide the highest level of service in the most cost effective way was a key element in the NOC design. What is required is a tool able to hide the complexity of the infrastructure and provide the operators a single, simple interface where an initial diagnosis based on specified rules results in a single alarm clearly indentifying the fault. Providing a tool able to present alarms already processed and correlated across the different equipments is a very effective way to reduce cost by reducing the initial diagnostic phase hence giving more time to a more specialized team to solve the actual issue.
