Managing fixed and mobile switching
networks is an extremely complicated task. To access the network
data, a text-based interface is typically used, which makes it
difficult to maintain an overview of the connections across the
network. The resulting data puzzle is solved by the use of
ad-hoc views of data using spreadsheets and other kind of
documents not designed for the complicated task a switch expert
faces. Only a few people with many years of experience are
capable of understanding a switching network as one unit.
With the rapid growth in the size of
networks it becomes more and more difficult to maintain an
overview of the network and how changes will affect operations.
As a result, too many network changes are implemented in a
"trial and error" way - a much too expensive and inefficient way
of maintaining a network.
Controlling the network development process
is essential through all its phases, from planning and storing
data to implementing the changes. SAT quickly and efficiently
answers questions like:
Which trees point to this circuit group?
Show me all the paths from this digit!
If I change this digit, which other elements will be
Is my network consistent?
SAT presents the network data in a
user-friendly interactive tree explorer. The main network
elements treated by SAT per switch are: trees, digits,
destinations, alternatives, sub-destinations, announcements,
special routes, routes, circuit groups and circuits.
Complete network consistency and control for the
Simulation of planned changes
Tools for analyzing and comparing different network
The ability to view and track all paths through the
network in both directions
The ability to filter out distracting elements
SAT additionally features:
Reports made from a SQL interface to the network data
End Of Selection (EOS) analysis
Comparison of switch configurations
