NetPOD EVO - Functional Modules

PIM - GEO: Georeferenced Maps

Your customized map.
The Georeferenced Maps, enables the user, to create maps based on Google Maps™. The site location is defined with longitude and latitude by the user. Sites are placed automatically on the map in the exact location.
Maps can be created in an unlimited number and the user can customize them in style and data visualization. The client requires an internet connection.

PIM - ESA: Server Automations

SW Module designed for Server automation and scheduling.
Allows creating an unlimited number of “server side” automation in an easy and intuitive way with any combination and any possible Audition.
The automation will controls any alarmed or prealarmed input when it changes its status (rising edge or falling edge). The wide range of scheduling options allow running scheduled tasks automatically once, secondly, minutely, hourly, daily, monthly, yearly, in specified period with correlation of alarm/events.

PIM - HTTP: Proxy HTTP

Integrates the direct management of devices configurable via web browser.
For security purposes or for network structure problems some client could be on a private network or on a public network but encapsulated in a VPN tunnel (virtual private network), and therefore it is not able to reach a device via internet. The “http proxy” module overcomes this obstacle allowing the management of web server enabled equipment for the NetPOD interface. Moreover, the SW module is transparent to the internet.

PIM - UDS: User Definable Screens

To create your custom dashboards views.
The UDS module allows to associate different data typologies (spectrum monitoring, any type of data inputs/outputs, enumerated values and formulas) and to put them in the same window. For example, UDS can be used to concentrate all links of several broadcasting sites, or to monitor the complete STL chain from the studio to the last transmitter, or to design a command panel to manage the status of a transmitter as you were in front of it. All this can be set in one or “n” UDS dashboards windows.

PIM - INETPOD: Mobile Client

Client for iOS and Android
Application for iPhone®, iPad® and Android devices that enables you to monitor and manage your network in mobility.
Ideal for technicians on the territory to manage the assigned equipment, tickets, inventory, etc.
CTO can see the performance of all network in your hand.
Specifications:
- iOS >= 7.0
- Android >= 4.4

PIM - TEC: Technicians

Extend alarm forwarding rules.
This PIM adds to the system a new entity: the technician list. Technicians can be divided in geographical or technical areas of responsibility so that, for example, RF technicians won’t be disturbed by electrical problems, and so on.
The system can be configured to send voice alarms, e-mails and SMS, based on the work shifts and the availability of the technicians All commands, response and alarms sent/received by a technician are logged.

PIM - CIM: Central Inventory Management System

Central inventory & asset management
The central inventory & asset management system provides complete details about the hardware used or installed in the system.

You can search Equipment by Name, Code, Location, Group, MUX, Service, Customer, Hardware Types, etc.
This module allows the system to enrich incidents and alarms with specific device information. So it provides also the ability to:
- Manage the Reports and export them to Excel or CSV formats that can be integrate with third-party reporting engines or print it out for future reference.
- Manage Incident and Change processes based on ITIL best practice.
- Archive any photos, manuals and related documents of your inventory.
All these features are extremely configurable, and can be personalized manage ticketing and escalation by the customer or by the organization.

PIM – S2S: SMS to SNMP Proxy

This module gives you the capacity to convert an SMS into SNMP information.

The system takes information from the SMS and translates this into SNMP messages: these are received by NMS to update the state of the agent, or the measurement, to create an alarm or to change an alarm state into a normal state.

Groups

Grant user access to specific I/Os

The Group PIM allows the visualization of each input / output / device only to users with granted access. Basically, it splits the network to create different layers of representation in a user-level or geographical way, associated with one or more groups.

The user will not see the measures that have not been associated as well as the relative alarms, messages or icons in the map. Furthermore, for each group one can specify both the reading and writing permissions.

Performance Management

Performance Management enables the dashboard and immediate snapshots.

This tool allows users to manage the KPI using all the measurements available in the network.

One can access real time information, or calculate the SLA (Service Level Agreement) filtered by the period (daily, weekly, monthly or yearly) and type (Operator, MUX, Service, Region, Area, Structure, etc.).

FM Multiplex

This function allows full remote control of FM probes, dedicated to the QoS FM monitoring. You can customize rules for scan frequency (even on different transmitters) for setting alarms and analysis criteria, using both HTTP and SNMP protocols.

RDS information contained in the processed MPX signal is easily visualized and represented as RDS/RBDS data and statistics.

Traps Manager

The Traps Manager allows NetPOD software to customize the managing of the traps sent by the devices in the network.

Traps are used to update in real time the value of the configured measurements to know the state of the single alarms on the single I/O.

Legacy NetPOD Plug-In Modules (RDF)

PIM - RTCC: Timed Outputs PIM

To activate commands at preset timetables.
The timed outputs module allows the supervisor to set up the SET and RESET of a RDF output at a preset time or even to enable an ‘automation program’ periodically. Periodical activation can be programmed daily or according to a weekly timetable. The module is therefore very useful whenever you want the RDF to execute a command, or a sequence of commands, autonomously at preset times (absolute) or at regular intervals (periodic).

PIM - CDGP: CDMA/GPRS

GPRS & CDMA modem management module.
The GPRS and the CDMA use the internet over GSM (GPRS) and internet over CDMA to carry data from one remote site data concentrator (RDF) to the control center. At any connection, the telecom network manager assigns an IP address, and this IP address changes every new connection. That’s why we have designed a dedicated SW to manage these connections. The IP address of the control center is fixed.

PIM - MX: Matrixes

Switching matrixes remote management.
The Matrix Control Module allows configuring and managing switching matrixes to route audio, video and IF signals. The module has an editor and a display editor to configure the matrix and to display its status. The editor allows setup the matrix network and the signal routing. A simple click will then be enough to make the system find the best routing for the signal.

PIM - RAUTO: Local RDF Automation

To add local and remote automations managed by andperformed on the RDF.
You can create and store in the peripheral some “automations” and the RDF will perform them without asking or needing to connect to the control center, Automations will be started following an event or a level measurement at a set input and can start on the RDF itself or another RDF, according to the automation type. The automation can end automatically or after the input level, that has started the automation, return inside and set limit.
