5529 Statistics and Data Collector

With the introduction of sensitive real-time services, such as voice and video over broadband access, service providers need to deploy Operations Support System (OSS) applications that track service quality, bandwidth usage, and network load. To do this, the OSS applications must be supplied with a large volume of network-generated statistical and performance data.

A high-performance application, the Nokia 5529 Statistics and Data Collector (SDC) collects data, statistics, and performance information from Nokia access network elements (NEs). Data is collected, stored, organized and transferred under the control of the OSS application. The 5529 SDC implements optimized collection mechanisms that protect NEs from processing overload. The 5529 SDC also provides a simpler, more efficient and cost-effective means for integration with the service-assurance OSS.

The 5529 SDC is an enhanced application that is part of the broader Nokia access management portfolio, including the Nokia 5520 Access Management System (AMS) and the Nokia 5529 family of products.
