Data processing

FeaturesAdvantages
Simulation of protection mechanisms – NetworkMining allows what-if network survivability modeling (e.g. what if this cable will be damaged, which trails and paths will survive and which will be down?)
Allows investigate behavior of the network in case of failures
Supports assurance processes that rely on highly accurate data and actual network behavior (e.g. in the corporate market)
Supports the trouble-shooting of complex network faults (e.g. combination of several outages)
Up-front SPOF calculations – For every trail single Point of Failures are determined
Detect unexpected SPOFs
Pre-calculation of SPOFs supports pro-active SLA management
Pre-calculation of SPOFs accelerates network assurance processes
SRG computations – NetworkMining allows to combine objects into Shared Risk Groups (e.g. if two cables share the same rail track they can be marked as belonging to the same SRG) and calculate all consequences
Avoids manual configuration of SRG
Enables impact assessment of SRG
Capacity usage calculations – combining detailed network snapshots and knowledge about transmission technologies capabilities, NetworkMining is able to build precise and detailed view on how much network capacity have been allocated already and how much still available for new provisioning.
Supports capacity management processes with simple retrieval of data. No complex calculations required.
Simplifies and enhances business logic in provisioning processes
Enables easy pre-sales decision making
Equipment usage calculations – detailed statistics about all network assets (racks, cards etc.) collected and made available for analysis
Supports asset management processes with simple retrieval of data. No correlations between physical and logical inventory required.
Simplifies and enhances business logic in provisioning processes
Routing engine – is an automatic circuit design tool, capable to utilize detailed info about the multi-layered network structure
Enables circuits design for point to point transport technologies (SDH, WDM and OTN)
Simplifies technical pre-sales
Ensures compliance with SLA diversity
Reconciliation - NetworkMining has rich capabilities to make an incremental network discovery. Every new discovery round results compared with the data already stored in the repository, delta between new and old network snapshot calculated and analyzed.
Enables detailed follow up on the network transformation progress
Helps to detects if the actual network implementation deviates from the expected
Planning, retiring and reservation engine – NetworkMining offers capabilities to perform operational network planning tasks. New inventory (equipment, circuits etc.) can be easily added. NetworkMining is able to obey all equipment limitations and restriction (e.g. card A can be deployed only to the slot B). System will track the status (planned, implemented, conflicted etc.) and inform whenever it has been changed.
Support tactical day-to-day planning needs
Helps to automated transport technology related objects planning (both active and unmanaged equipment and trails)
