The DynamicTMN® CMIP Manager SDK provides a set of high-level Java APIs and development tools which greatly simplify the task of developing Java-based platform-independent Common Management Information Protocol (CMIP) manager software for use in Telecommunications Management Network (TMN) deployments such as:

  • operation support systems (OSS)
  • network management systems (NMS)
  • element management systems (EMS)
  • trouble administration systems
  • subscriber management systems
  • home location register (HLR) administration
  • electronic bonding applications
  • fault management applications
  • local number portability (LNP) LSMS and SOA
  • security management applications
  • equipment provisioning applications
  • billing systems
  • network topology applications
  • protocol mediators and Q-adaptors
  • management system protocol adaptor plug-ins
  • and many more...

By using the CMIP manager SDK's high-level GDMO manager API, CMIS messaging API and ASN.1 API, CMIP network management projects that previously required large teams of seasoned CMIP developers can now be completed in a fraction of the time with only a few developers having little or no CMIP development experience. This results in across the board reduction in costs on everything from development license fees to software development resource costs.

Also, since the toolkit is entirely Java-based, you can now enjoy all the benefits of platform independence such as:

  • choice of hardware platform (Intel, Sun, HP, IBM, Apple, etc)
  • choice of operating system (Linux, Windows, Solaris, HP-UX, AIX, etc.)
  • choice of deployment (standlone, web-app, EJB, legacy integration, etc.)
