Event Horizon for MegaVision
Fault Management System

Event Horizon for MegaVisionT is a Fault Management System application (FMS) that provides advanced features not found with standard SNMP trap and alarm management systems that simply display SNMP traps and alarms. Event Horizon provides Network Operations Center (NOC) managers a means to understand problems and various ways to take immediate remedial action. For example, with direct connectivity, the affected device or site can be activated with a simple mouse click. Tools to allow remote access to equipment and control of backup systems are built in. Event Horizon is designed to complement MRV Communications' line of In-Reach environmental and alarming products.

Remote Visibility & Event History
Event Horizon is a full-featured FMS application, providing text based alarm screens that describe all the pertinent details of fault events. Alarms are summarized on a rolling color-coded alarm screen that displays each event in detail. Each alarm summary includes information on severity level, alarm description, equipment type, location, timestamp and cause. Additionally, all alarms, events and actions are kept in a historical file. Alarms can be filtered or queried for further detail when necessary. The historical logs are available for subsequent analysis to help isolate and understand trends and root cause analysis of problem conditions so that they can be averted in the future.

Monitor Contact Closures
Event Horizon will notify a NOC of any state change in a "dry contact closure" alarm input provided by In-Reach servers. These contact closures, known as Alarm Inputs, can be monitored and assigned user defined names such as Chicago -door alarm, Maple Street -water alarm and Boston -power supply fail. Friendly user programmed alarm descriptions are displayed in the alarm screen. Location descriptions can also be tied to the event. Once a contact closure occurs, an SNMP trap is sent to Event Horizon, which displays it in an easy to understand translated format rather than the raw SNMP coded format. These features ensure immediate and pinpoint identification of problems enabling network and system administrators to quickly identify and implement remedial measures.

Integrated Remote Access
Event Horizon adds value compared to a standard SNMP trap manager with its bi-directional monitoring and control features. For example, if an In-Reach contact closure-monitoring card detects a fault, the user can double-click the alarm and initiate a Telnet session to a user definable destination. Once connected to the alarmed component, the necessary corrective actions may be taken. The user-defined information to access the remote component is stored in a local relational database. The database content is user programmable and can be independent or tied to specific alarm events.

The ability to associate a Telnet session with individual alarms allows system and network administrators to not only monitor but also seamlessly control devices in need of immediate attention.

Remote Control (Alarms and Actions)
Additional functionality is available with Event Horizon and the In-Reach products. Network and system administrators can configure 'Actions ' to respond to alarms. Actions may include remotely activating back-up systems such as generators or auxiliary cooling systems to prevent remote problems from becoming emergencies. Actions are accomplished using SNMP "set" commands. For example, if an alarm comes in from a remote temperature sensor, a back-up air conditioning unit can be turned on or equipment can be remotely powered off. Event Horizon allows full monitoring and control of remote site network equipment for signal and contact based systems.

Remote Environmental Monitoring
The ability of In-Reach products to monitor remote site environmental conditions such as temperature and humidity is simplified by Event Horizon. Temperature and humidity sensors can be set to alarm via SNMP when thresholds are exceeded. Specific readings for temperature can also be queried and displayed.

Email Alerts
In addition to SNMP traps, an email alert can be defined to send alert notifications so that network and system administrators can be notified of critical alarm conditions. This ensures that the appropriate person is notified of critical problems and conditions.
