UHP Network Management System (NMS) is a sophisticated and user-friendly tool for monitoring and controlling UHP networks. NMS substantially simplifies configuration of the Hub and of the remote terminals, collects and stores in its database information about current and historical status of the whole network and its individual elements, and also displays that information in graphical and tabular formats. The NMS system supports all UHP configurations and topologies, including TDM/TDMA, SCPC, SCPC-DAMA and Hubless TDMA.
  • Enhanced, graphical, web-based, multi-user, multi-role user interface
  • Main dashboard with complete network overview on one screen and easy navigation
  • Events correlator showing historical performance graphs and related events
  • Customized reports with statistics exported for further analysis
  • Individual/Group software upgrade of remote terminals via multicast
  • Support for all UHP modes of operation: TDM/TDMA, SCPC, DAMA, Hubless TDMA, redundancy
  • Management of multiple networks in a single NMS workspace, including geo-redundant Hubs
  • Virtual Network Operator (VNO) – sharing of common network infrastructure between operators
  • Ideal for any network size or topology – from a simple link and up to a multi-hub network
  • One-way control – allows sending one-way (“blind”) commands to non-responding terminals
  • API interface for external devices and software applications (OSS/BSS)

UHP NMS system is shipped pre-installed in a server running Linux. NMS is traditionally collocated with the network Hub however availability of Web interface allows location at any alternate place. The system provides multi-user, multi-language interface and supports multiple Virtual Network Operators (VNO) sharing common network infrastructure.

The user interface focuses the operator’s attention on the most important events in the system, and also provides the operator with an exhaustive information needed for analysis and troubleshooting. By selecting most suitable settings for the display, the operator can display the information in the desired format: logs, graphs and/or tables. All key network characteristics are displayed on a single page, known as the dashboard.

UHP Smart Redundancy facilitates self-healing architecture for a single VSAT Hub and also for multiple geographically diverse (redundant) Hubs. Architecture of the Hub with Smart Redundancy is not different from a traditional Hub architecture, but all the controllers are universal and can assume any role. 

The NMS continuously analyzes status of the network.  If any problems arise, it re-assigns the role of a failed device to one of the redundant controllers. The re-assignment makes use of the same software key that was earlier used in the failed device. That way the software is always in use without any downtime.
