WebNMS OSS Mediation Architecture
Below is illustration of how WebNMS Framework can be used to integrate OSS systems to EMS/NMS systems.
The mediation architecture uses a common XML messaging model to
easily integrate management protocols into the mediation solution.
SNMP, TL1, CLI and other protocols, including proprietary protocols,
are converted to and from XML messages. These XML messages can be
processed more easily by the mediation services layer. The mediation
services layer provides a set of services, including data collection,
event management, and configuration services. These services are
made available via the northbound OSS interfaces to NMS and OSS
The mediation solution uses a multi-tier architecture with a relational
database back-end. This provides a clustered, scalable and reliable
solution that can meet a wide range of service provider needs. The
distributed architecture, along with the open, standards-based,
extensible design, ensures integration with diverse service provider
environments and the ability to evolve with changing needs.
