New Flexent Applications


NETWORK WIRELESS SYSTEMS

Radio Cluster Server (RCS): This is the application that runs on


the individual Applications Processors (APs) within the APC, and controls the Microcells and Modcells

Message Management Application (MMA): This application allows


IS-634 (other vendor) base stations to work with the Flexent platform

Element Management System (EMS): A web based GUI interface


that runs on the OMP-FX. First use will be for APC OA&M

Flexent OA&M Evolution Strategy


NETWORK WIRELESS SYSTEMS

The Flexent/AUTOPLEX wireless network architecture is evolving. Therefore, an integrated OA&M framework is needed to manage: new Flexent network elements (e.g.. Application Processors, Flexent cell sites). existing AUTOPLEX network elements (e.g. ECPC, Series II cell sites).

17

Lucent Technologies Proprietary Use Pursuant to Company Instructions

First Step: Introducing the EMS


NETWORK WIRELESS SYSTEMS

The Element Management System (EMS)


A new user interface for performing OA&M functions. Introduced in Release13.0 for Flexent AP fault management. Web-based Graphical User Interface (Release 15.0). A new framework for OA&M applications. Eventually will replace ECP status display pages. Eventually will provide one uniform OA&M fault management interface for all Flexent/AUTOPLEX network elements. Runs on the OMP-FX.
