There are many different types of connection that can be stored within our network circuit software, which we’ll go into in more detail below:
1. Transport connections
These include SDH, SONET, WDM, OTN, MPLS, PDH, DSL, fiber and subsea cables, as well as ordinary cables.
2. Ethernet connections
Ethernet links that can be registered and managed in the telecom connection inventory include ethernet over microwave/MPLS/SDH/SONET, GPON, and carrier and metro ethernets.
In addition, e-lines – which connect to ports over a WAN – e-LAN and e-tree can be logged within IMS.
3. Data connections
MPLS, IP, DCN, ATM and frame relays are the data connections that can be managed in the telecom circuit software.
4. Voice connections
IMS can also look after customer voice connections, signal links, voice routes, voice core and access links, and voice interconnects to other telecoms providers.
5. Mobile and radio connections
Mobile connections that can be managed within the network circuit software include core, RAN (2G, 3G and 4G), backhaul as well as both national and international connections.
Additionally, IMS can help a telecom service provider to maintain radio connections, such as those of the sub and microwave varieties.
