The following process walkthrough describes step-by-step how x:akta can help a Carrier's Carrier provide an end-to-end connection in a multi-vendor network.
This involves availability checks, automatic routing, patching localization, report generation, installation support, IP generation and configuration, parameter generation and activation.
|1. A request comes in to set up an IP connection between two sites through a multi-vendor network.|
|2. x:akta is used to find free ports with IP connectivity at each site.|
|3. Using x:akta's routing tools, connectivity is found across the multi-vendor network. Necessary patching information is located by x:akta.|
|4. If new patching is needed, x:akta generates a drawing in standard Visio format, showing detailed patching information.|
|5. Technicians perform the necessary patching on site, using the Visio drawings generated by x:akta.|
|6. IP addresses and subnets are automatically configured using the x:akta IP manager.|
|7. The appropriate parameters are generated by x:akta and passed to the specified equipment in the field for activation.|
|8. The connection is validated and the work order is completed.|
