M2000 System Architecture

About This Chapter


This part describes the overall architecture, hardware architecture, software architecture, typical
configuration and interfaces of the M2000.
The M2000 system works in client/server mode.
The M2000 software consists of the client software, server software, and NE mediation software.
The software is mutually independent. The client software runs on the client, and the server
software and mediation software run on the server.
The M2000 server uses a PC server or an ATCA server.
The hardware of an M2000 client refers to a PC. An M2000 system can have multiple clients
and one server.
Besides the server and the client, the M2000 system may also include the following networking
devices based on requirements:
l

Router

Switch

Timeslot cross-multiplexer

2.2 Software Architecture of the M2000


This part describes the software architecture of the M2000 and the functional modules of each
part.

Overview
The M2000 software consists of three sub-systems:
l

Server software

Client software

NE mediation software

The NE mediation software varies according to the version of the NE. The NE mediation
software accesses the NE of the corresponding version and adapts it for the network.
Figure 2-5 shows the M2000 software architecture.

M2000 Server Software


Figure 2-6 shows the composition of the M2000 server software.
Figure 2-6 Component modules of the M2000 server software

The M2000 server software consists of many function modules. Through the CORBA software
bus, these modules communicate with each other and with the corresponding modules of the
M2000 client software.
The M2000 server provides the interface for the NMS through the NM interface module. It
provides interfaces for the mediation software of various NEs through the mediation common
module. Some modules access the M2000 server database through the database interface.
Table 2-1 describes these modules and their functions.

Each module of the M2000 server software, except the mediation common module and the NMS
interface module, corresponds to a module on GUI.
You can start the NE LMT directly from the M2000 client.

NE Mediation Software
The M2000 mediation module software consists of a series of mediation software. Each piece
of mediation software corresponds to one or more NE versions.
The mediation software provides the interface files and mediation files the NE needs to access
the M2000 system.

2.5 M2000 Interfaces


M2000 interfaces are classified into three types: the northbound interfaces, the southbound
interfaces and the internal interfaces. This part describes their functions.

Northbound Interfaces
The M2000 supports the following Itf-N network management interfaces:
l

CORBA interface
It complies with the 3GPP R6 protocol.

File interface
The NMS retrieves from the M2000 the alarm, performance, and configuration data saved
to text files.

Alarm streaming interface


The M2000 sends the processed NE alarms in the form of character stream to the NMS.

l

SNMP interface
The M2000 sends the processed alarms in the form of text to the NMS through the SNMP
alarm interface.

MML transparent transmission interface


The MML transparent transmission interface serves as a proxy for transferring MML
commands between the NMS and NEs. Through this interface, the NMS can operate and
maintain the associated NEs using MML commands.

Southbound Interfaces
The M2000 manages mobile NEs through the Human Machine Language (MML) interfaces or
binary interfaces.
In addition, the files such as NE log files and performance result files are transported using the
FTP protocol between the M2000 and managed NEs.

Internal Interfaces
The server software, client software, and mediation software in the M2000 system communicate
with each other through the CORBA interface.
