VC4-IMS allow users to manually create, change or delete network items and circuit routes.
The automatic connection configuration functionality allows network operators to automatically plan connections and services in IMS. This functionality is based on “least cost routing”. Rules to define the “costs” can be implemented based on customer requirements. For example shortest distance, least hops, least financial costs or combination.
IMS can link the automatic planning functionality with the workflow engine of IMS. Thereby, workflows
can be fully automated.
