SNMP management system called Ikarus provides graphical interface between administrator and managed GPON network. Ikarus is developed by OFA company for management and maintance of ZTE GPON networks. The key feature of this system is simplicity. Ikarus focus on quick registration of new ONTs and easy configuration maintance of GPON network. All new registered ONU are automatically added to monitoring and diagnose systems. Sophisticated monitoring system can recognise significant changes occured in network which activate alarm and network administrator will be informed by SMS or email. Ikarus also allow to do multiple changes, for example change bandwidth profile for specific group of ONUs.
|Setup of triple-play services||TV, Data (including the rate for the customer), Phone; specification of correct VLAN for a service|
|Setup of security functions for ONT||Firewall, DHCP Snooping, Option82, IP source guard|
|ONT modes||Setup of Bridge (eg. for different ports - typically for STB) Router; IP source selection - static, DHCP, PPPoE|
|Optical power diagnostic||Power level ONT/OLT, distance from OLT, temperature of ONT, firmware version, broken fiber detection, uptime/downtime|
|ONT status monitoring||Working, dying, loss; also support of restore defaults or reboot ONT|
NMS Ikarus is working in cloud architecture. NMS server runs on CentOS and connection to NIX is ensured with redundant direct lines. System based on this architecture doesn’t need install new programs. ISP login to NMS server through webpages via HTTP/HTTPS protocol from any devices. Every ISP have unique login and password. ISP can manage all OLT in his network after succesfull login. Change of configuration is applied immediately (SNMP OID is send to OLT). NMS Ikarus can be connected with any account/billing system via SOAP / REST, now also by using webhooks. It allows automatic configuration of unregistered ONU according parameters stored in account/billing system. If ISP require to use own NMS server we can install Ikarus to ISP’s server placed in his network. In the case of interest please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. NMS Ikarus can be customized for every ISP. We can change language, create several levels of administrator accounts and also we can add new functions to NMS.

If you are interested, it's possible to install NMS server locally on your server with CentOS platform
|Graphs||daily, weekly, monthly, yearly|
|Power parameters||ONT/OLT signal power, power of laser on ONT|
|Data flows||Both directions for OLT and ONT including separating on multicast, unicast and broadcast packets.|
|ONT status||working/dying/los, uptime/downtime, power level ONT/OLT, distance from OLT, temperature of ONT, firmware version, broken fiber detection|
|Watchdog||Alarms via SMS and Emails of each parameters or, for example, for specific ONT.|
