Alcatel-Lucent TSM-8000

The Alcatel-Lucent TSM-8000 Fault Management System is a graphically oriented element management system. It is scalable through software keys to support small, medium, or large telecommunication networks. The TSM-8000 supports multiple users, multiple networks and multiple protocols. It automatically collects and stores alarm, status, and performance data from the monitored transmission equipment. This information is displayed both graphically and textually to the operator. The TSM-8000 also provides comprehensive reports for all current and historical activity for the entire network including all operator actions. As an option, the TSM-8000 provides SNMP fault reporting and controls to and from a higher-level Manager of Managers (MoM).

The TSM-8000 supports SNMP (V1, V2 and V3), TL1, and MCS-11 protocols for fault management. It uses a Client/Server architecture residing on Microsoft Windows platform. Remote access, alarm paging, and e-mail notification are standard features. As an optional feature, the customer can assess the TSM-8000 via a web browser which allows the customer remote visibility to the TSM-8000 where access to the Internet is available.
