Report of internship

I'm doing my internship in Aircom International,Gurgaon. During these 4 months(Jan15-May15) I was involved in learning and going through their product i.e.  I-View Life Plan(IVLP).

IVLP

 It is a product used worldwide by companies like Ericson, Huawei  etc. The main function of this product is configuration management. It works in collaboration with two other products of Aircom ,they are Asset(Planning Tool) and Optima(database).It takes the live data and configure it according to the requirement of the client.

The description of the other two tools:

  • Asset:

It is a planning tool. Using asset we decide the values that are to be changed in the live network for better performance.

  • Optima

It is used for loading the data from the server. The data is then stored in the optima database

ABOUT THE ORGANISATION:-

AIRCOM International is a telecom network management consultancy firm focusing on end-to-end network planning, sharing, outsourcing, and OSS optimization for IP and cellular networks. The company was founded in May 1995 and is headquartered in London, with offices in 16 countries.

A privately held company, AIRCOM works with many wireless carriers to upgrade and optimize networks as they migrate from 2G to 3G to 4G.

INTRODUCTION OF THE I-VIEW LIVE PLAN:-

I-VIEW Live Plan is a configuration management tool, which provides a streamlined mechanism for implementing both small and large-scale planned network changes. It addresses the requirements for radio networks and enables easy configuration of live networks, and where allowed, synchronization of your live and planned networks. You can download network configurations, modify them and then implement them. You can also define your own templates to enable you to configure large groups of cells quickly.

I-VIEW Live Plan supports two main processes:

  • The parameter 'data fill' for roll-out of new equipment
  • The operational control process of configuration change management relating to changes and upgrades to existing equipment in the network

OBJECTIVE OF THE PROJECT:-

I-VIEW Live Plan has been developed to meet the configuration management needs of both large and smaller operators, including:

  • Facilitating easy tuning and implementation of cell parameter changes into the network
  • Allowing parallel optimization of the network while maintaining consistency across any geographic partitioning of the network
  • Easy integration and data sharing with other network optimization tools such as performance monitoring, radio planning, frequency planning
  • Automated synchronization of the Live network to the Planned network
  • I-VIEW Live Plan operates in a Web interface, making multi-user scenarios easier to implement, and does not require Citrix

HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS:-

  • You have Administrator permissions for the machine on which you are installing.
  • Verify that the database, mediation and application servers are using the supported versions:
    • Oracle 11G R2 version 11.2.0.3
    • OS (including all patches)
  • You should have following software's installed in your system:-
    • Microsoft Visual Studio 2010
    • Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 ado.net entity framework tools
    • Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 tools for SQL Server
    • Tortoise SVN
    • Microsoft .net framework 4.5
    • Microsoft .net framework 4 Multi-Targeting Pack
    • Microsoft asp.net MVC2
    • Microsoft SQL Server
    • Microsoft Silverlight
    • Microsoft Silverlight SDK
    • Microsoft Silverlight Toolkit
    • Microsoft Silverlight tools for Visual Studio
    • MS Build Extension Pack
  • The Internet Information Services(IIS) Manager is set to 64-bit

PROJECT DESIGN:-

  • I-VIEW Live Plan is a configuration management tool, which provides a streamlined mechanism for implementing both small and large-scale planned network changes.
  • IVLP  maintains integrity between ASSET and LIVE network.

I-VIEW LIVE PLAN DETAILED DESIGN:-

Starting the I-View Live Plan:-

  • In your web browser, type the URL for your installation. The I-VIEW Live Plan front page appears:
  • Type your User name and Password
  • Click Login.

MODULES:-

The Functionality Explorer acts as a visual menu for accessing all the functions of I-VIEW Live Plan. It has a Microsoft Outlook™ look and feel, enabling you to quickly access a module even whilst working on a different module. The bottom section contains the main categories of functions. Each time you click one of these categories, the upper section changes according to your selection. In some cases it will list sub options, and in others it will display selection criteria for the option you have chosen.

From the Functionality Explorer, depending on your permissions, you can view the:

  • Dashboard
  • Search and Audit Tool
  • Live and Planned network scenarios
  • Discrepancies
  • Logs
  • Reports
  • Configuration options
  • Dependency management options

About I-View Live Plan Workspace:-

The Workspace is the area to the right of the Functionality Explorer, where data is displayed according to your selections.

This picture shows an example of the default Functionality Explorer displaying the Dashboard in the Workspace:

Logical Group Cell Template:-

Currently I'm working on Template and Group Management which is a part of Configuration module.

  • Templates can be applied on network elements
  • Templates can be applied on logical groups
  • LGCT includes two main components, they are level and priority.
  • Template and group management further consists:-
    • Template Wizard
    • Group Entity Wizard
    • Group Parameters Wizard
    • Template Associator
    • Association Viewer
    • Settings

Template Wizard:-You can create Network Entity Templates to configure large number of entities that you do not want to configure each one individually

Template Associator:-You can associate the newly created template in the "Template Associator" under "Template and Group Management".

Association Viewer:-You can view all associations created between network entities and templates in the Association Viewer.

  • From You can display associations based on
    • Template Association
    • Entity Association
    • Entity Group Association
    • Parameter Association

Settings:-Under "Template and Group Management", click on the "Settings" tab, you can import and export templates and associations.

  • Cell templates are imported and exported as *.csv files collected in a *.zip file
  • Cell template associations are imported as *.csv files

Group Entity Wizard:-In I-VIEW Live Plan, you can organise your network entities into logical groups.Click on "Entity Group Wizard" under "Template and Group Management" to create a group and assign network entities to it.

Parameter Group Wizard:-We can create parameter groups using parameter group wizard..Select the required parameters from the Available parameters list and move them to select parameter list.

FUTURE SCOPE OF THE PROJECT:-

Customization based on the customer requirements will be taken as Change Request.
