NOKIA NEMU

NETWORK ELEMENT MANAGEMENT UNIT

1 2006 © NOKIA IPA ESS - Nokia Nemu.ppt/ APr / 10.11.2006


Objectives
• Identify and describe the philosophy of the Nokia NEMU in terms of its role in the
Telecommunication Management Networks (TMN). Also, list the key functions of
NEMU in the network elements whilst making a difference to the role of the OMU
unit. The experienced participants are expected to list and clarify the differences in
the NEMU solution between the Nokia 2G and 3G networks.
• Identify and clearly explain the differences between the NEMU server and client.
Using a logical diagram, illustrate how the NEMU server and clients are connected
with the network elements on the O&M LAN. Briefly explain the role of the System
Management Server (SMS) and give limited details on the compact NEMU hardware.
• Explain what are the Element Manager and the Application Manager and the
relationship that they share. Also, define what are NEMU applications. Finally,
describe the role of the Action Viewer application.
• Given the management areas of fault, configuration and performance, identify what
applications are available for use.
• Demonstrate the ability to start a NEMU EM session from the client. Also, the
participants should demonstrate their ability to start and navigate applications
through the use of the application manager.

The Role of Network Element Management
Business Functions of Service management systems:
MIS
Management • take care of subscriber data
Systems • provision services and subscribers
• collect and rate, bill offered services
• create, promote and monitor services
Service CCB
Management Operations Support Systems (OSS):
Systems • collect information from the underlying networks
and pre/post-process the raw data
Planning • analyse and distribute information
System • optimise network capacity and quality
Operations
Support OSS
Systems Element management systems (EM):
• EMs are part of the NE (RNC, BTS, AXC, etc.)
functionality
BTS AXC NE y • monitor the functioning of the equipment
Element
Management RNC NE x
• collect raw data (performance indicators)
BTS
Systems • local GUI provided for site engineers
• mediate towards the OSS system
NE = network element, CCB = customer care and
billing, MIS = management information system

• NEMU is a graphical interface that allows common tasks, PM post-processing


functions and OSS mediation to be achieved efficiently as possible.

NEMU Support’s Different Applications

• NEMU is a unit that is found


at the network element –
but the interface can be
launched from a client
computer
• NEMU applications make
network operation and
maintenance easier to
perform
• NEMU works in a windows
environment that is easier to
learn than command line

• The Network Element has an OMU which is responsible for the real-time O&M
tasks, databases, hardware supervision and storage devices. MML is used to
issue commands.
• NEMU is used to support the interface, graphical tools, PM post-processing
and act’s as a mediator between the network element and the OSS.

Physical NEMU Architecture
COMPACT for A-series (IPA2800) MEDIUM for B-series (DX200)

CPU card

• There are two types of NEMU. A compact version that is included in the
cabinet of the IPA2800 (RNC and MGW).
• The Medium version is situated as an external unit and is used in the DX 200
network elements of the MSC and HLR.

Application Launcher
• The Application Launcher is
the launch pad to the NEMU
Environment
IP-address of NE
• Each user/group has their own
Nemuadmin
username and password
• The name (or IP address) of the
nemuuser
NEMU (network element) is
given
• When a session to NEMU is
initiated then the Application
Launcher is displayed.

Navigating the Network Elements in NEMU
• The Network
Elements, such as
the RNC, contain a
logical structure of
the network (left
window).
• Navigating the
network and
finding/changing
parameters can be
done easily through
the graphical
interface.
• Common commands
can be learnt easier
as opposed to a
command line
approach.

NEMU and Information Security
• Each user/group must be
registered in NEMU with
an associated profile
• NEMU keeps an Action Log
of all the user events in the
NEMU Action Log Viewer
network for Application provides
troubleshooting purposes graphical user interface
to view logs

• NEMU uses a separate


application to configure
the user profiles Fetched from NEMU

12 2006 © NOKIA IPA ESS - Nokia Nemu.ppt/ APr / 10.11.2006


NEMU Applications – Fault Management
• Although network
monitoring is performed by
the OSS (NetAct), that
element monitoring and
status checking is done
through NEMU
• In the RNC, it is possible to
determine the amount of
working cells against the
network alarms.
• Tools like this can be used
in daily routines and
troubleshooting

13 2006 © NOKIA IPA ESS - Nokia Nemu.ppt/ APr / 10.11.2006


NEMU Applications – Configuration
Management (1/2)
• There are many
parameters used in the
network, especially in the
radio part. NEMU
applications can be used
to define new
connections, change
existing definitions and
remove old connections
• NEMU can be used easily
to make changes
• Mass changes of
parameters in the network
should be performed
through the use of the
OSS (NetAct)

NEMU Application – Configuration
Management (2/2)
Navigation View Principle
reused in modification dialogs

Using progress bars


Keeping the user informed what
is going on

• In the RNC, new base stations can be created through the use of the NEMU
application. The creation progress can also be monitored

15 2006 © NOKIA IPA ESS - Nokia Nemu.ppt/ APr / 10.11.2006


NEMU Applications – Performance
Management
• The network elements
generate a massive amount
of performance data. In the
RNC and MGW, these are
stored in NEMU before
transfer to the OSS.
• In the RNC and MGW,
graphical tools are used to
perform the administration
of statistics (ie what’s on)
• The RNC also contains
applications that are used to
view on-line Post-processed
statistics.

NEMU Review (1/5)
1) On the TMN what philosophy of management does NEMU support?

a. Business Management
b. Service Management
c. Network ‘Wide’ Management
d. Network element management

21 2006 © NOKIA IPA ESS - Nokia Nemu.ppt/ APr / 10.11.2006


NEMU Review (2/5)
2) Explain briefly the difference between the NEMU client and server. Also,
what is the role of the System Management Server (SMS)?

NEMU server is a physical unit located in the network element which contains
the graphical applications (also taskes care of OSS Mediation). Whereas the
Client is a PC/UNIX box connected via LAN to the Server and through JAVA
Launches a graphical interface. The SMS is responsible for monitoring and
maintaining NEMU in the Network.

NEMU Review (3/5)
3) Explain briefly the difference between NEMU and the OMU?
NEMU manages the external interfaces to and from the LAN (inc clients and
the OSS through the open COBRA interface. NEMU acts as a mediation function
to the OSS and contains the graphical tools. The OMU is responsible for the
real-time maintenance and recovery of the network element. It is also responsible
for the routing of data outside the element. It manages the BTS O&M in RNC.
