Karel Public Switching SolutionsCentralized Management On top of the state of the art design of DS200 Public Exchange, management utilities of the system are of equal adequacy. The term management includes operation, maintenance and monitoring of the system from local or particularly remote locations by the trained personnel of telecom operator. Today, operation, maintenance and monitoring of exchanges from remote locations are neither big deals nor technological achievements. Controlling exchanges from central offices through IP networks is the fashion which can be realized by Karel DS200 as well. This might be applicable for the operators that are wealthy enough to carry their IP infrastructures to individual switches. However, it is still odd to expect many operators to do so especially for sparsely populated areas. For those operators that do not have IP networks reaching to their exchanges which are distributed all over the sparsely populated areas of country, Karel implements IP over E1 technology. Regardless of the number and types of telephone exchanges in between, KAREL carries IP packages through the E1 trunks. In other words, operators using E1 trunks are no more concerned to set up a separate network for: Transmission of billing data and call records to central Monitoring the system performance as well as all minor and major alarms from the central office Delivering SMS and e-mail messages to predefined persons in case of an alarm Programming, operation and maintenance of remote exchanges from the central office
Public Switching Solutions Centralized Management ALR200 ALR200 is the real time monitoring, maintenance and operating center of DS200. It monitors the entire network and incorporates for the several abnormal states. Highlights: Monitoring: Alarm software enables us to monitor different types of statuses and alarms. You can intervene, query, save or delete the incoming alarm messages by choosing suitable options from the menu when you right click on the alarm message section. Alarm log reports: Analyzing alarms for precaution and improvement of system is available Statistics: Various call traffic statistics can be remotely analyzed Incoming / Outgoing call records: The system records calls which can be used for several purposes such as reorganizing the network User guided fault management: The user friendly system guides the operator for convenient solutions Integrated service assurance (line/connection testing): Tests can be performed periodically for ensuring a faultless system Extensions can be tested not only online but also from remote systemsALR200 monitors the entire network and generates alarm for the following cases: Link breakdown Card breakdown Line Breakdown Buffer Full Redundant CPU in operation The advanced report and query system of ALR200 enables to take detailed information about every alarm. Some of these queries are:
Alarm number Alarm Port Alarm Date / Time Operation Date / Time Alarm Message Intervation Date Alarm Received / Intervened In case of an alarm situation, the system notifies the related personnel at the PC monitor and buzzer. Also, the ALR200 sends alarm information through: SMS (short message service) to predefined mobile phones through built in GSM gateway and/or E-mail to predefined e-mail addresses, informing the recipients about the alarm situation.Public Switching Solutions Centralized Management Idea
Idea is used to program and the configure DS200 in order to simplify your operations.Highlights: Extensive settings about trunk routing and modules of the system are just a-few-click- operations Extensions parameters such as calling permission, line test, caller ID setting can be set for each extension, individually All of the parameters can be tested automatically and/or manually Special tables for signalling protocols for Public Exchanges facilitate easy programming of several parameters at once Idea can be run over an IP network or an E1 network for remote access Through user-friendly interfaces, the user can not only download parameters to PC but also backup transfer parameters to system easily Overall performance management (long-term and real time) concept and products Comfortable traffic controls High end SS7 management and call routing management Automated Network Configuration management Open interfaces Full control capabilities of all DS200 components Scaleable client/server architecture with state-of-the-art graphicalPublic Switching Solutions Centralized Management Net-CM-PSS

Net-Console is designed to assist the technical personnel to access the exchange and monitor its status in real time, including the state of each port on-line. Highlights: State provisioning of all ports with all activity details Connects network of computers and network of telephones on a single point and presents access at multi point (as much as the number of the computers) Connects network of computers and network of telephones at a single point and provides access at several points (as much as the number of the computers in the network) Blocked lines, unavailable links, busy channels can easily be seen and taken care of on time Extremely fast provisioning of new products and services Different type user levels, such as admin, guest Out of service online alarm indicationPublic Switching Solutions Unique Application Bridging the Digital Divide Digital divide is the gap between those who have and have not access to ICTs (Information and Communication Technologies). It results in a communitys alienation from the technological artifacts. In opposition to metropolitan areas, rural communities often lag far behind in deploying new technologies: Not more than "a few" telephone lines per 100 habitants in rural areas of the developing countries. The lack of both telephone lines and modern systems result in unavailability of telephone
communication, especially in CIS Countries and less developed areas within these countries provides testimony to the immense demand for communication. The communication concept devised by KAREL, offers comprehensive solutions to a multitude of requirements arising in connection with supplying sparsely populated areas with a digital telecommunications infrastructure. The concept provides not only for the aspect of perfect and cheap communication but also for special solutions to the problems specific to the CIS countries. Technology is flexible enough to adapt the requirements by tailor-made solutions. KAREL has developed a comprehensive concept that allows expansion and fulfilment of all demands at all times and under adapting country to modern and entirely digitalized conditions. Thanks to this concept, the size of an exchange can be dimensioned economically to meet local demands as well as allowing effortless adaptation to increasing number and traffic.Public Switching Solutions Field Proven Project Trouble: Inadequate old fashioned system Electromechanical (ATSK) switching systems and analog transmissions among them Insufficient switching infrastructure to meet the rising demands of less developed areas High breakdown rates due to lack of high technology Insufficient O&M Tools High electricity consumptions of electromechanical switching systems Rural Communities complain about: Poor voice quality High number of call attempt failures Unreliability Lack of features Telephone Operators are dissatisfied due to: Low revenues Low successful call statistics High O&M costs Unsatisfied customers Governments are concerned with: Alienation of rural community Socioeconomic imbalance between rural and metropolitan areas It is clear that overcoming all this annoying problems with analog and old fashioned systems is impossible. However, considering the fact that analog systems are widespread, replacing them with digital ones requires huge investments, this in turn slows down digitalization and make the technology cliff broader.
Public Switching Solutions Field Proven Project Unique Solution Although ATSK has problematic and inefficient performance with bulk mechanical structure and huge energy-consuming parts, costs of replacing ATSK are very high for developing countries. Karel implement a comprehensive cost effective concept via integrating DS200 digital exchange into ATSK.
