Virtual NMS to enable anyone to monitor the operation of iDirect modem/routers.NYNEX have developed a virtual network management system (vNMS) server/software system to help anyone concerned with the operation of iDirect remote sites.
The system is applicable to satellite broadband service providers and resellers who have a number of iDirect sites that they have a responsibility to monitor and keep working. It is also applicable to a business leasing several iDirect sites, for example across Africa/Europe/Middle East, but concerned centrally that all sites are operational and working normally. Even individual end users might wish to have an independent means of monitoring the performance of their terminal.
How it works:
Imagine that you are the manager concerned about several iDirect
sites. You have access to these sites, either physically by visiting
them or by remote access via LAN or WAN using the modem passwords.
You need to set up an account on the Nynex vNMS server.
Registration is available to you even if you don't have your iDirect
service provided by Nynex. Having set up the account you
download some 'collector' client software that you then apply to all
your iDirect routers. Once running, this software collects service
status and traffic flow information about your remotes and sends it
periodically to the vNMS server.
Nynex operates a number of iDirect networks in Europe, Middle East and North Africa.
Satellites include: Eutelsat W6, Telstar 11N, Eutelsat EB4A Eutelsat W2A and NSS12
