The VMware Smart Assurance Adapter for Alcatel-Lucent 5620 SAM EMS provides a link from the Alcatel-Lucent 5620 SAM EMS Service Aware Manager Open Interface (SAM-O) to the following VMware Smart Assurance Domain Managers:
IP Availability Manager
MPLS Topology Manager
Network Protocol Managers (Manager for BGP, Manager for OSPF, Manager for IS-IS)
The Adapter sends topology queries by XML streams to the EMS, where they are processed. Near real-time events are passed from the EMS by Java Message Service (JMS), also in XML format, to the Adapter. Based on the events, the Adapter creates notifications in the Adapter Platform. The Adapter Platform creates notifications for display in the Service Assurance Global Console.
