The core of critical communication infrastructure
The Paging Network Controller (PNC) is the core of critical communication infrastructure. The possibility to deploy two redundant instances ensures the highest possible availability. It consists of the following software modules:
- Paging Operations (PO)
- Structure Configurator (SC)
- Operation & Maintenance Centre (OMC)
The three software modules:
The Paging Operations is responsible for the whole alerting job chain. Incoming paging messages from the input systems through TMIP interface are queued, batched and sent to the dispatching stage. The Dispatcher controls the distribution of the paging data as well as the base station configuration and monitoring confirmation data to and from the base stations. Additional features like message priority, automatic message repetition, message input cap, overload mode, encryption capability, complement the Paging Operations.
The Structure Configurator features the simple and safe configuration of the whole paging network. Additional features include easy drag-and-drop functionality as well as a configuration manager which allows you to save and restore different network configurations.
The OMC monitors base station parameters and all PNC instances by receiving and handling system alarms and events which can be relayed via paging, email, SNMP, Modbus, SMS, to service staff.
