This chapter describes the Oracle Communications Network Integrity Optical TMF814 CORBA cartridge.
The Optical TMF814 CORBA cartridge is used to discover your network using a TMF814 common object request broker architecture (CORBA) interface. This cartridge provides discovery actions capable of discovering both physical (equipment) and logical (interface) hierarchy details of managed elements (MEs). It uses the TMF814 CORBA interface as a discovery protocol to connect and retrieve details from network management systems (NMSs) or element management systems (EMSs).
Using this cartridge, you can configure Network Integrity to capture and retrieve data about a network system from equipment and system vendors that have adopted the TMF814 standard.
The Optical TMF814 CORBA cartridge can be used to discover the following network systems:
Synchronous optical networking (SONET)
Synchronous digital hierarchy (SDH)
Dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM)
Asynchronous transfer mode (ATM)
This cartridge supports versions 2.0, 2.1, 3.0, and 3.2 of the TMF814 implementation for the ManagedElementMgr and EquipmentInventoryMgr managers.
This cartridge translates MTNM objects obtained during discovery into the Oracle Communications Information Model and then writes the objects to the Network Integrity database.
To ensure scalability, this cartridge processes MEs individually. The duration of the discovery actions is proportional to the number and size of MEs to be discovered. It is not possible to pause and resume a scan, though a scan can be stopped.
