Use case

Cross-domain performance management for full insight

Unified performance management is important in multi-domain network environments. UMBOSS addresses this need by consolidating performance data from different sources and providing comprehensive insights for efficient network operations.


Which performance system is for what?

Consider the following example: a telecom provider has a FTTH network managed by its own vendor-specific (e.g., Huawei 2000) element management system (EMS), DWDM with its own EMS (e.g., Ericsson SOME), and its core network monitored with generic PM. All three systems work independently from each other as they belong to three different units within your organization.

Troubleshooting in such a setup means you have to inspect different data in different systems, and perhaps even overcome organizational boundaries. You have to use a lot of imagination and effort to figure out what’s wrong.

Absence of a unified approach simply makes daily operations difficult and has a negative impact on your network’s overall quality.

Efficient network operations require unified performance management

The UMBOSS Performance Management (PM) module is designed to consolidate performance data originating from multiple collectors: SNMP, non-SNMP and EMSs. It provides unified insight into the overall performance of your network across different domains. The schematic below describes this umbrella concept within a performance management landscape.

Key features of UMBOSS Performance Management

Collection of performance data (PD) from different sources and their normalization and store
KPI modeling and calculations for improved insight
Detection of threshold violation with upper and lower value warnings: minor, major, and critical thresholds for different time periods of day, week, month, and year
Advanced analytical functionalities such as: trend predictions and forecasting, proactive reporting, automatic threshold suggestions
Administration tool allows configuration of all performance metrics, object types and graph templates with feature-rich graphing properties
All performance data is accessible from the UMBOSS Portal, one easily searches for an object and selects performance variables to inspect
Performance data is easily exported in various formats for further use and processing

Benefits of unified performance management

Single performance management across different domains
Unified performance analysis of network and IT performance
End-to-end visibility and reporting
Preemptive reaction to forthcoming network or computing issues
Higher availability of network, IT systems and services
Faster troubleshooting with relevant data
