CanogaView EMS – Element Management System

Network management is a daunting task for your Tech Support staff. With networks consisting of a myriad of differing equipment types and multiple manufacturers, Network Management Systems tries to tie everything together. The value of these expensive systems come into question when the techs use them as nothing more than alarm reporters because they are; slow, cumbersome, does not cover all device functions and does not support all network devices.

For "real work", techs often revert to the device's Command Line Interface (CLI). While this addresses Tech's immediate needs, it increases level of training needed and demands a greater skill level of the technician. For the less frequently used systems, or for uncommon problems, the techs need to look up information in manuals and tech guides, delaying service restoral. CanogaView EMS is an easy to use, intuitive graphical interface operation and management of Canoga Perkins NIDs. CanogaView EMS turns the novice and occasional user into Canoga Experts. CanogaView EMS increases technician confidence, decreases circuit configuration time and mistakes, reduces the time it takes to identify and correct problems, thereby increasing circuit availability. CanogaView EMS presents a Graphical and Tabular representation of NID Network Elements.

Canoga Perkins NID Network Elements are manageable using multiple techniques (SNMP, Craft Terminal, and Telnet) and multiple SNMP Managers. A typical network would have a Primary CanogaView EMS Server and one or more Back-up or Secondary Servers. Clients (users) access the CanogaView EMS Server using standard Web Browsers (Internet Explorer, Mozilla FireFox). Field Techs/Engineers get access to CanogaView either as a Client access the server. Network Control and the Field Techs share and see the same information. Field Techs looking at a photo like graphical presentation of the equipment they are working on greatly reduces mistakes.

The example above show how multiple instances of CanogaView EMS overlap to manage subsets of the overall network. National Trouble Center has access to the entire network while the Regional centers access only those network elements within their regions. CanogaView EMS for special purposes, such as the Performance Collection System application for CanogaView EMS or for asset reporting to higher management systems, are transparent to other instances of CanogaView EMS in the network. This flexibility allows you to deploy CanogaView EMS where and how you need it to support YOUR operations.
