EMS (Element Management System) software is a C/S architecture integrated device management platform, which is designed based on SNMP protocol. Now, it is mainly used for managing EPON and GPON series products.
EMS need following operational environment：
OS: Windows2000, Windows XP, Windows NT
Support centralization management of C-Data’s EPON, GPON & EDFA serial products
Support discovering topology automatically, TreeView, editing topology
Support all functional configuration operations of EPON and GPON
Support division of management rights
Support real-time alarm and historic alarm log query
Support perfect log management
Support database backup and import functions
Support real-time performance collection and port traffic statistics.
Windows of topology is the main display area of the EMS software, according to the management device, user can move device to right position on regional background map for visual management. Double click the device object on the topology diagram, you can enter the device management window to perform various operations on the device.
The administrator can add or modify the passive network part of the topology diagram manually,such as the optical shunt in EPON/GPON network, to make the topology same to the actual network layout.
