The FRM220-NMC is a Network Management Controller card that can be placed in a compatible FRM220 series chassis to provide network management functions. The management interface supports a local RS-232 serial console or remote TCP/IP management by Telnet, HTTP or SNMP protocols. The card is designed to be hot swapped so that it may be field replaced without affecting any online service of any other rack cards.
The card also supports online firmware upgrade from TFTP server, using any user interface. Support for any standard NMS is provided by the included enterprise MIB file. CTC Union also provides and maintains their own EMS (Element Management System) which is a Java based client/server manager for monitoring and maintaining a large number of network elements over a long period of time.
