Description The FLEXENT OMP-FX is a new OMP that will replace both the existing simplex OMP and the High Availability OMP (HA-OMP). The FLEXENT OMP-FX is an OMP whose architecture is analogous to the , current simplex OMP that supports the Flexent product family and provides , some of the feature advantages of the existing HA-OMP . The OMP-FX may be installed with two cabinets for retrofit applications, or in a single cabinet configuration for new installations. NOTE: For DEFINITY Switch applications, the two cabinet configuration must be used, since only the Annex NTS and associated patch panels support that switch. The OMP-FX may interface with both the 5ESS Switch and VCDX, and will identified as the DCS within this document. Lucent Technologies — Proprietary See notice on first page Issue 4 November 2000 1-1 Introduction to the OMP-FX, Continued Value Added The OMP-FX has better system performance and data availability than that of the existing SPARCServer and UltraSPARC based OMPs at a greatly reduced price (compared to the HA-OMP). The OMP-FX has considerably less administrative complexity (compared with the HA-OMP) resulting in additional capacity for more OMP applications and minimal required training. To reduce transition costs and complexities, the OMP-FX allows customers to reuse many of the simplex OMP peripherals, including: s Miscellaneous Equipment Cabinet s Network Terminal Server (NTS) s System Console (terminal and keyboard) s Ethernet LAN Hubs s X-terminals (however, the Element Management System for Flexent applications will require 72 MB RAM) s Modems s Splitters s Printers Lucent Technologies — Proprietary See notice on first page 1-2 Issue 4 November 2000 Introduction to the OMP-FX, Continued Software Release/ Support Requirements The OMP-FX was introduced with ECP Software Release 14.0.

These tools are installed on the OMP-FX, executed through the DBretrofit command from a command line interface, and used to validate ECP data. To use this feature the service provider must have 200 MB of disk space, the Text Recent Change/Verify, OMP Recent Change/Verify, and Database Tools on OMP optional features. ECP Performance Tools The OMP-FX provides tools for processing ECP performance data. The tools, Uxtpl, systat, and pst are ECP resident and collect data related to ECP processor occupancy. The data files created by the tools are transferred manually to the OMP for post processing. The OMP provides two tools for processing the ECP performance data. The processtrp tools sorts the raw Uxtpl file and produces several summary reports. The processpst tools processes 72 separate files that represent 20-minute snapshots of pst output and produces four files that contain detailed summary reports in table format. Packaging for the OMP-FX Packaging for the OMP-FX provides scripts to identify the contents of the software, for installation, and the configuration of the OMP-FX. Lucent Technologies — Proprietary See notice on first page 1-12 Issue 4 November 2000 OMP-FX Supported Features, Continued ECP Maintenance and Administration Access The OMP-FX provides access to multiple user interfaces through its multiwindowing interface. This capability provides additional Input/Output (I/O) terminals without impacting the existing ECP TTY I/O ports. The OMP provides remote access to the following Executive Cellular Processor (ECP) interfaces: Maintenance CRT (MCRT), including Emergency Action Interface (EAI) s ECP Recent Change and Verify (RC/V) s ECP craft shell s ECP Control and Display Terminal (CDT) Status and Display s UNIX Real Time Reliable (RTR) shell s Receive Only Printer (ROP). 1 ECP Physical ROP ECP TTY Terminals Ethernet Hub 8 CDT Sessions 1 ECP MCRT Network Terminal Server s OMP Workstations <= 7 CDT Sessions < 23 VTTY Cut-through Sessions <= 12 (future 36) OMP RC/V Sessions OMP 3 ECP ROP Monitors One DCI Link Figure 1-5. ECP Maintenance and Administration Access Lucent Technologies — Proprietary See notice on first page Issue 4 November 2000 1-13 OMP-FX Supported Features, Continued ECP Control and Display Terminal Access The OMP supports one ECP EAI MCRT connection and up to eight ECP non-EAI Control and Display Terminal (CDT) connections. The OMP supports eight CDT virtual TTY (VTTY) sessions over the DCI interface. CDT connections are also provided through the ECP Input/Output Processor (IOP) ports configured for Control and Display terminals connected to the OMP Network Terminal Server (NTS). NOTE: VTTY over DCI is the recommended and default access method for CDT sessions and is launched from the OMP menus. (Access to the physical CDT connections is available through the command line only.) ECP Recent Change and Verify The OMP provides a Recent Change and Verify (RC/V) capability that splits software processes between the ECP and the OMP RC/V can still be run solely . on the ECP as well; however, the split-process RC/V runs faster and off loads some of the ECP processor demand. When possible, you should use this splitprocess version of RC/V, which divides the RC/V functions between the ECP and OMP as follows: s The RC/V front-end functions and the On-line Data Integrity functions are run on the OMP . s The Form Translation and Mapping (FTAM) functions and database record access routines remain on the ECP. (Continued on next page) Lucent Technologies — Proprietary See notice on first page 1-14 Issue 4 November 2000 OMP-FX Supported Features, Continued ECP Recent Change and Verify, Continued When you start an RC/V session, the system performs the necessary validation and then sends an interprocessor message to the FTAM function. The FTAM process translates the incoming data into database-specific information and performs the requested operation (such as insert or review). The FTAM process sends the results of each operation to the front-end process for display via interprocessor messages. The RC/V monitor process on the ECP creates the ECP processes upon request from the OMP and connects processes on both processors to message ports. Twelve message ports are available on both the ECP and OMP for RC/V inter process communications. Lucent Technologies — Proprietary See notice on first page Issue 4 November 2000 1-15 OMP-FX Supported Features, Continued ECP ROP Monitoring The ECP ROP output stream is delivered to the OMP to provide immediate realtime access to service messages. You can view the output stream as it is delivered to the OMP or access daily log files where the output is stored. In addition to the standard physical ROPMON connection (between the NTS and ECP) and one logical ROPMON connection, the OMP provides two additional, configurable ROPMON (RM) devices over DCI in ECP Release 9.0. ECP–OMP Clock Synchronization A clock synchronization process on the OMP keeps the OMP clock in sync with the master clock on the ECP When the time difference between the OMP and . ECP is more than 30 seconds (but less than 1 hour 30 seconds), automatic synchronization is started. If the time difference exceeds 1 hour 30 seconds, manual synchronization is necessary. DEFINITY® Switch DCS Maintenance and Administration Access DEFINITY Switch DCS access is provided by the OMP using the same PROC Mode functionality that resides on the DCS Manager II. PROC Mode provides either basic or enhanced mode access to DCSs with release 6.0 and later generics. Lucent Technologies — Proprietary See notice on first page 1-16 Issue 4 November 2000 OMP-FX Supported Features, Continued 5ESS switch Maintenance and Administration Access This capability provides terminal access to the 5ESS switch and VCDX from the OMP-FX.

The OMP collects the service measurement and traffic data from the ECP and domestic 5ESS switches and stores all 24 hourly data files. The report generation tools reside on the OMP as well as the WatchMark FLEX/PM. Lucent Technologies — Proprietary See notice on first page 1-18 Issue 4 November 2000 OMP-FX Supported Features, Continued IS-41 Message Visibility The IS-41 MV feature provides a near real-time data channel and data management functions. The first application for MV is fraud control. IS-41 data is transferred to the OMP for processing and control. IS-41 MV includes the following functions: s Processes the data on the OMP and writes the data to the data channels. s Provides an Application Processor Interface (API) for customer access to five data channels. NOTE: See the IS-41 Message Visibility Application Programming Interface Programmer’s Guide (401-662-003) for detailed information about API. Lucent Technologies — Proprietary See notice on first page Issue 4 November 2000 1-19 OMP-FX Supported Features, Continued Authorized Roaming Lists (ARL) Neighbor MSC roaming relationships are defined in the Home Location Register (HLR) databases and currently apply to all home subscribers. The directory numbers of all home subscribers are vulnerable to clone fraud in all markets involved in the HLR roaming relationship. The optional ARL feature provides administration of the HLR on a per-subscriber basis to include the Mobile Switching Centers (MSCs) in which subscribers are allowed to roam. Tailoring a subscriber’s authorized service area for known roaming patterns limits vulnerability to just those markets in which service is desired. ARL is administered by maintaining a database on the OMP that contains persubscriber negative roaming list. Roaming lists specify MSCs in which a subscriber is not allowed to roam. An expiration date can be specified for a list entry to automatically restore roaming authorization after a given date. Up to eight list entries can be specified per subscriber and at least 20,000 subscribers are supported. High Capacity Automatic Message Accounting (HCAMA) High Capacity Automatic Message Accounting (HCAMA) Teleprocessing is an optional feature. It provides a high-throughput method for collecting and transmitting AMA data to the host collector. The feature uses the OMP instead of the ECP to transmit AMA data to the host collector. In addition, this feature uses the DCI link between the OMP and ECP to speed up data delivery and reduce the real-time processing demand on the ECP . Other major components of the HCAMA feature include: s A remote procedure call (RPC) server daemon that runs on the OMP This . server is the BILLDATS® Enhanced AMA Teleprocessing System (AMATPS+) RPC Server, commonly referred to as ARPCS. This server provides the client collector a highly efficient polling interface on the OMP, replacing the ECP’s AMATPS BX.25 port. s An AMATPS Applications Programming Interface, commonly referred to as AMATPS API. The AMATPS API is a shared object library that provides an interface between the ECP and the ARPCS. (Continued on next page) Lucent Technologies — Proprietary See notice on first page 1-20 Issue 4 November 2000 OMP-FX Supported Features, Continued High Capacity Automatic Message Accounting (HCAMA), Continued s A remote billing collector module, such as the BILLDATS collector, which polls the OMP’s ARPCS for billing data.

Lucent Technologies — Proprietary See notice on first page 1-34 Issue 4 November 2000 Netra t 1120 Hardware Architecture, Continued Disk Architecture The OMP-FX has two internal 18.2 GB hard drives. One disk is considered the boot disk and the other the backup disk, or hot spare. The operating system and application software are stored on both disks. The data is mirrored across 3 (of 7) partitions of the two disks. In case of the boot disk failure, the backup disk can be converted to a bootable disk with a fully functioning operating system and OMP application packages within two hours. During disk recovery, the OMP is capable of copying data from one disk partition to a redundant partition at a minimum rate of 100 MB per minute on an idle system. The OMP-FX is capable of performing a reliable system backup of the disks while in a fully operational in multi-user mode. Solstice DiskSuite v4.2 is the software used to perform disk mirroring to ensure high data availability and reliability. DiskSuite also performs automatic mirror resynchronization after a system failure. The disk mirroring information is set up during staging and requires 50 MB of disk space. NOTE: Release 16 and later will support 2 external 18.2 GB disk drives, in addition to the 2 internal disk drives. CD-ROM The CD-ROM drive is a standard device with multimedia features, which includes multi-session capability and fast access for image and video data. The CD-ROM is a 644 MB capacity SunCD model. Lucent Technologies — Proprietary See notice on first page Issue 4 November 2000 1-35 Netra t 1120 Hardware Architecture, Continued Digital Audio Tape (DAT) Drive The 4-mm tape drive is read/write capable and is compatible with the ECP tape and with tapes used for software distribution. One 4-mm DAT DDS-3 tape drive, which is capable of 24 GB of storage, provides sufficient capacity to backup all the OMP’s programs and data (in compressed form) without having to replace the tape. The transfer rate is 2 MB (compressed data) per second. The compression ratio is dependent upon the type of data being compressed. PCI-DCI Card The Peripheral Control Interface - Dual Serial Channel (DSCH) Computer Interconnect (PCI-DCI) provides a primary high speed connection (700 K bytes per second) between the ECP and the OMP-FX. There is a new Real Time Reliable (RTR) driver for the PCI-DCI card. The driver supports the different versions (SBus or PCI) of the DCI card by identifying the type of card and setting several global flags. As the driver executes, decisions in the hardware dependent sections of the code are based on the hardware local flags. Current plans are to use the PCI-DCI driver for the OMP-FX only. Lucent Technologies — Proprietary See notice on first page 1-36 Issue 4 November 2000 Netra t 1120 Hardware Architecture, Continued Alarm Card The OMP-FX introduces an alarm card. The alarm card monitors the system performance and can alert operators to system conditions through an LED on the front panel and through a connector. The connector can be interfaced to a remote console or other application. The system can generate a maximum of three alarm conditions of which two are user configured and one is the system alarm. The alarm card also allows the system to be reset remotely in case of a “systemhung” condition. NOTE: Remote reset capabilities are NOT available in the initial release of the OMP-FX. The additional software drivers and packages required for the operation of the alarm card are supplied on a separate CD and are loaded with the operating system during staging.
