Use case

  • Add modems after first installation of NMS Prime
  • Support new modem type within your cable network

How to create a new config file:

The Provisioning module of NMS Prime lets you create new configuration files, which can later be assigned to cable modems and mtas.

The GUI for the creation of new config files is located in the left sidebar under Provisioning → Configfiles.

A recursive Configfile tree is now displayed.

Overview of existing configfiles for cable modems and mtas

If you click on an existing configuration or click on "Create Configfile" at the top left, you will see the following page:

Edit page example for editing config files in nms prime

Treeview in Overview-Page explained:

The configuration files are built by going down the items in the treeview. This means that you are able to input general configurations for each vendor and then creating sub-items (or sub-configs) that are specific to each product of this vendor.
This makes updating configfiles easy, because if you want to update something for on vendor, you just have to edit the topmost configfile and affect all underlying ones automatically.

Tipps for creating and editing a configuration file:

If the "Public Use" field is set to "No" you are not able to select this configfile when registering a new modem or mta. Configurations with Public Use set to "No" can be used to structure the treeview. The Config file parameters will still be used for all sub-configs.
When creating or editing the config-file interpreter for cable modems and mtas will always check for validity if you click on save. In case of errors you will get a warning message.
If you have multiple firmware uploaded in one tree-structure only the last one found will be used. The same goes for the certificate.
All fields, except the name, are optional. If you upload a firmware, then a certificate file must be uploaded too.

All modem types are supported. Common types are Fritzbox, Thomson, Arris, Technicolor, ...

  1. Robin Sachse: could be useful to add stuff here, when you prepare your configfile video and get in discussion with Martin Zimmerling for verifying the site..
