About WPS

Overview

About WPS

WPS is a high-performance kernel, which provides support to design and configure Alcatel-Lucent networks, based on specific networks recommendations. WPS offers a centralized view, and configuration of all Network Elements (NE) and related parameters.

WPS kernel-based applications can be used for configuration at every stage of network management:

Data engineering of a new network

Data engineering for network expansion, densification

Data engineering for network optimization

Data engineering for upgrade provisioning

WPS manages configuration data coming from various sources. The source file format used in WPS is CM XML.

WPS operations support very large networks. A single instance of WPS supports multiple WMS main servers within a Regional Operational Center (ROC).

Installation scenarios

The following installation scenarios are applicable to the current version of the :

Installation on a PC client

Installation in a multi-user environment (such as Citrix Systems, Inc. Citrix ® servers).

A license file is required to use the application.

A demo license file is provided with the software for each installation scenario. The demo

licenses can be installed on any PC or Citrix server.

Note: The Version 3.0 software installs the plug-ins for all supported technologies automatically by default. The installed licenses filter what plug-ins are visible in the GUI.

The demo license supports all technologies (LTE, W-CDMA, and Small Cells). Thus, when the demo license is installed, the plug-ins for all supported technologies are visible in the GUI.

The GUI screen images in this document presume that the user only has the licenses installed. Thus, the user can only see the features and options in the GUI.

In a multi-user environment such as Citrix, a license is required for each server on which

the application must be installed. If the Citrix environment is composed of a farm of servers, ensure that you have the required set of licenses for installation and use.

For more information on installation and obtaining and importing the license files, see Alcatel-Lucent 9952 Wireless Provisioning System - Installation and Administration Guide, 9YZ-05608-0001-RJZZA.

Kernel package

Characteristics of the kernel package

Kernel package

The kernel package has the following characteristics:

Defines a structure for the network configuration data. For more information, see “Structure of the network configuration data” (p. 2-10).

Provides an event propagation that allows other services to monitor all changes of the network configuration data. The workorders are updated based on the event propagation. For more information, see “Event propagation” (p. 2-11).

Provides a GUI that is built as a set of independent panels. These panels interact through event propagation. For more information, see “GUI components” (p. 2-12).

Provides feature-specific services such as templates and datasets with the same model or GUI. For more information, see “Feature specific services” (p. 2-13).

Structure of the network configuration data

The WPS uses a generic representation of the network configuration data.

The following types of data structure are available:

Managed object types

Managed object instances

Managed object types

The following properties represent each managed object type in WPS:

Name and identifier of the type, for example, Lp, LogicalProcessor.

Containment constraints such as the kind of managed objects and how many managed objects it can contain.

Description of each attribute with the following information:

– Name

– Description

– A primary key indication for the attribute. A primary key is the object identifier in the containment tree.

– The data type and constraints of the attribute, for instance, a decimal in the range

[1 16383],

containing two IP addresses and a decimal.

or a list of 20-character maximum ASCII strings, or a structure

The WPS can manage several versions of the same object type. These versions are managed as different and independent object types.

The workspace contains a set of models that belong to a set of versions. A given managed object type can belong to only one version.

General principles Software architecture description

Kernel package

Managed object instances

Based on the object types information, the WPS can create and modify object instances. These object instances are organized into a containment tree. The following properties describe each node of the tree:

The managed object type

The key value (a unique identifier in the scope of its parent)

The attribute values

A list of all the managed object instances contained in the node

The keys and attribute values are expressed in the tool using one of the following data structures:

Atomic - Represents an atomic value such as an ASCII String, a decimal.

List - Represents an ordered or variable-length array of values.

Struct - Represents an ordered or fixed-length array of named values.

Event propagation

The event propagation allows other services to monitor all changes made to the network configuration data.

Workorder definition

A workorder defines the transition from an initial configuration to a final configuration that fulfills an evolution request.

A workorder is a structure composed of the following basic changes:

Creation of a MOI

Deletion of a MOI

Modification of a MOI

The network configuration represented in the WPS is the MO tree. The MO tree in WPS indicate the result of the execution of these changes on an initial reference network configuration. The MO tree managed within WPS is thus a final view of the configuration changes.

Configuration change events

An event propagation mechanism is implemented in the kernel, which ensures that any modification made on the MO tree generates an event. The events are broadcast to the potential listeners.

The event propagation mechanism is used in the GUI package. The workorder manager also considers these events to update the current workorder.

The interfaces used to update the MO tree within the WPS are all based on this mechanism.

General principles Software architecture description

Kernel package

Replaying workorders

The MO tree managed within the WPS is a final view of the network. The MO tree includes all the modifications represented by the workorders.

If a change must be made in the workorder list, the final view is rebuilt with the following:

A reference to the initial configuration snapshot is kept within the kernel. Usually, this is a reference to a snapshot that can be re-imported into WPS.

The workorder management service enables execution of workorder on a network configuration.

To re-evaluate a set of workorders, the WPS runs the following operations:

Discarding the current network configuration

Loading the initial snapshot

Executing the commands of each workorder in the list

GUI components

The GUI is implemented as a set of independent components that interact by referring to the same network configuration data. These components exchange data on the selection and modification events.

Modification events

The modification events are generated each time the MO tree is modified. Specific modification events are also broadcast when data structures such as templates or datasets are modified. The GUI elements such as panels or menu actions can subscribe to these notifications.

Current selection

The GUI package also relies on the concept of current selection. The current selection is handled through the exchange of selection events.

The selection can apply to any of the following objects:

Workorder

Template

Set of managed objects

The selection is exclusive, that is, the selection of an element replaces the previous selection.

This event-based selection mechanism allows any GUI element to be either a selection source, a selection listener, or both. For instance, a menu action can select an element. A menu action can listen to the selection of specific elements to turn itself enabled or disabled.

General principles Software architecture description

Feature specific services

Kernel package

WPS provides feature-specific services with the relevant mechanisms or the templates and the datasets.

The templates, datasets, and checks are implemented on top of the basic services and follow the same model and GUI mechanism.

Templates

A template is associated to a Managed Object type. The templates contain a list of default values for all the type attributes and can be used by the MO instantiation mechanism. This allows to initialize attribute values for new MOs. The templates can also be used during the MO lifetime to alter a subset of its attributes.

The template manager maintains the mapping between an object type and all the associated templates.

Specific modification events are generated in the following cases:

A template is created.

A template is deleted.

A template attribute is modified.

The association between a Managed Object and its original template is not retained within the tool. In other words, the template assignment feature is not supported in WPS.

Datasets

A dataset is a set of references to managed objects. A dataset manager maintains a list of all existing datasets.

Specific modification events are generated each time:
