The Exchange Complexity

typical Indian Telecom Exchange has the following plant entities:
A simple network may probably not require any computerization
effort. But the actual ground reality is very dynamic and is always changing.
Fault repairs; new connections; subsequent increase in plant items - the network
that was so simple now appears complex and interwoven.
Records are being
maintained manually as well as digitally. But there is no integration of most of
the data so that a meaningful analysis can be done. More often than not data is
not readily available. It is spread out here and there. And it is mobile too -
its always there in the small diary that the linesman personally carries.
The network complexities together with non-availability of data does
make life miserable for managers and engineers of our telephone exchanges.
TeleLogic - Logical Solutions for Complex Networks
is basically designed to plug in complexities associated with a typical Indian
The concept of connectivity is fundamental to
TeleLogic. And herein lies the core strength of the system. The inherent
connectivity logic makes possible network tracing and identification of plant
items that are linked together. Functionality
The Data Availability Aspect:
Creation and editing of exchanges;
vertical; cables; cabinet; pillars; distribution pillars; junctions; manholes
and like with user friendly data input screen and checks and
Facility to terminate a cable at ET
or DT of a connected entity. The termination box also displays
faulty/damaged/spare pairs or the terminals of the entity. Pair in and pair out
is also reflected instantly.
Facility to trace a pair or a group
of pairs based on either qualitative or quantitative criteria's. You can trace a
faulty pair or a set of pair or a specified set of pair or by typing in a
Interactive trace lets you trace one
junction at a time and allows to make changes to the network simultaneously. It
makes the task of reaching an unknown entity easier by logically tracing the
In-built and on-line ripple affect.
Changes in the network are immediately reflected throughout the
The system facilitates printing of
standard reports that you always
Generally the following data-set is required:
- Map of the exchange
- Location of plant items of the exchange
- Jumpering, termination and subscriber data
One of the most
frequently asked question is - Where is the data? Needless to say, the data has
to be keyed in. It is seen that data is always available in an exchange till the
primary level, in some form or the other. Like a schematic diagram of the
network could be a good starting point. Other network details can be integrated
later. The subscriber database in many exchanges carries a lot of details
providing information on jumpering and termination also.
maps of many Indian cities are now available.
Newer techniques like
physical trace of a pair from the MDF to the DP are now being implemented in
many exchanges round the country.
Data can be generated. And TeleLogic
provides you a tool to build this network of tomorrow.
