End user terminals
Operator equipment

 

The FMC concentrates all Operation Support Subsystems (OSS) and Business Support Subsystems (BSS) needed for the provision of broadband services with ForsONEway.

 

As the central point for OSS management, it acts as the Network Management System (NMS) that grants monitoring and control of all the elements part of ForsONEway: The subscriber modem (Odín), the Satellite Broadband Network Gateway (Mímir) and the Encapsulation and Modulation Subsystem (EMS).

User interface (web based)

FMC is a simple web based user interface, hosted by the Mímir server (in the event of ForsONEway platforms integrating several Mímirs, the FMC will be accessible via any of the Mímirs part of the platform).

 

Configuration

The Mímir(s) needs to be configured properly prior to usage in a live environment. The FMC allows editing the parameters in an easy way with the help of its web based user interface.

 

The FMC can also control several parameters of the connected EMS device(s).


Fair Access Policy (FAP)

In order to provide a fair share of bandwidth amongst the connected Odin terminals depending on the service they subscribe a configurable FAP mechanism has been implemented.


The FMC allows the configuration of multiple FAPs which can be stored and used with the Odins.

 

Service plans

Closely coupled to the FAP is the creation of different service plans. Multiple plans can be added and assigned to different Odín terminals.

 

A plan consists of the permitted download speed, the maximum downloaded data per month as well as which FAP to use.

 

Populations

A population is a group of Odín remote terminals sharing certain conditions. The FMC permits the filtering and composing populations or groups depending on their geographical location, plans, EMS and Mímir they belong to.

 

The grouping of Odín terminals by populations can help differentiated (regional by country) billing and accounting when applicable; In terms of operation.

 

User management

The users are closely linked to the FAP, plan and population. On top of that they have a username and password for logging in to the Mímir as well as an unique MAC-address of the terminal that the user owns.

 

Additional parameters that a user possesses are personal details such as name, e-mail and address.

 

Monitor

The FMC is able to present information regarding the health of both the Mímir(s) as well as the EMS(s). Health in this context meaning status, eventual error messages as well as log files.


Furthermore it is able of viewing connected Odíns both at present and in the past as well as information regarding time connected and downloaded/uploaded data for both the forward link and the return channel.
