VCentral is a centralized Element Management System (EMS) offering insight and control into the health of the Venturi Optimization Engine. VCentral is an integral part of the Venturi optimization solution. It is a carrier class management system for managing the Venturi Optimization Engines from a central Network Operations Center (NOC). VCentral allows operator to configure, monitor, and manage multiple Optimization Engines. It has a simple, easy to use web browser based user interface. VCentral offers network administrators several unique and powerful management advantages:
VCentral enables fast, accurate configuration of multiple Optimization Engines. The configuration operations can be done on a single engine or a group of engines at the same time. Individual Optimization Engines can be upgraded from a main VCentral location by the click of a button.
VCentral provides the network administrator with real-time status of the network's overall health in a single summary view, allowing administrators to benefit from faster diagnosis and issue resolution. By enabling a single system-wide view of alarms and received SNMP traps, VCentral also eliminates the need to observe multiple alarm locations, track log entries, or interpret MIB (Management Information Base) files. Simultaneously, SNMP traps can be sent to a Network Management System for efficient analysis and processing by the Network Operations Center. The current alarm list shows all the outstanding alarms on the system whereas the Network Events list shows the history of all the events generated on the system.
VCentral contains a Network Map that displays each managed Venturi Optimization Engine as nodes on the GUI. It represents Venturi Optimization Engines and their status. It is sensitive to the changes in the Optimization Engine’s status and it quickly reflects those changes in the GUI. Any outstanding alarm on the Optimization Engine gets propagated to the Network map. The nodes representing the Optimization Engine on a network map blinks according to the severity of the outstanding alarm on the Optimization Engine. For example, a critical alarm on the Optimization Engine makes the color of the node representing the Optimization Engine on the network map to display red. The Network map can be used at any point of time to monitor the status of the complete network of Venturi Optimization Engines.
VCentral enables network-wide visibility of Optimization Engine performance, providing single-engine, engine group and all the engines level aggregate. VCentral also expedites data gathering and performance analysis, and different customized charts such as Daily, Weekly, Monthly, and Custom time period graphs can be generated.
VCentral supports end user activities such as performance and session length are available, ensuring better market understanding and decision making. In addition, usage information provides additional customer service tool for trouble ticket resolution.
