Paper Abstract

In this paper, we present a Proxy-Agent Management Platform, which supports the managed objects of the Optical Cross-Connects (OXC). OXC is a sophisticated WDM network element (NE) that makes the WDM networks reconfigurable. It consists of several sub-NEs, such as 3R modules, Mux/Demux modules, transponder modules, optical switch fabric modules, and operation administration and maintenance processing modules. The OXC network element manager requests and gathers the managed information, alarms, and events from those sub-NEs in the OXC network element, and updates the Management Information Base (MIB) of the OXC managed object existed in the local or remote OXC network element management system. We propose an OXC network element manager with proxy-agent functions which could configure, control, and manage the sub-NEs via an unified access interface on the Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA). The proxy-agent in the OXC network element management system offers its own MIB information to SNMP and/or CMIP manager. The proposed platform achieves high code reusability, provides unified access interfaces between sub-NEs and proxy-agent via ORB, and offers authentication and authorization. The proposed platform is verified on simulated testbed, and shows that managed objects can be added or droped easily to develop an intelligent OXC system.
