The VMware Smart Assurance Adapter for Alcatel-Lucent 5620 SAM EMS (the Adapter) collects topology and alarm information from the Alcatel-Lucent 5620 Service Aware Manager (SAM) element management system (EMS), normalizes the information, and delivers the normalized information to the MPLS Topology Server and the MPLS Monitoring Server. An MPLS Manager deployment that includes the Adapter shows the flow of information for the Adapter.
The Adapter forwards the topology and alarm information that MPLS Manager needs to model and monitor MPLS VPN networks that are populated with Alcatel-Lucent routers or switches.
The VMware Smart Assurance Adapter for Alcatel-Lucent 5620 SAM EMS User Guide describes the Adapter in detail and presents configuration procedures for the Adapter. It also identifies the records that MPLS Manager receives from the Adapter to build the MPLS VPN data models.
