AURORA GATEWAY CS or just agatewayCS for short, provides secure remote alarm monitoring over HTTPS for Avaya/Nortel CS1000 systems.
The agatewayCS is deployed as either a Linux or a Windows appliance on the customers local area network.
Error Codes from the CS1000 are sent to the agatewayCS as either:
Direct serial connection from the CS1000 TTY port
Direct SNMP trap messages from Call Servers, Signaling Servers, and Media Gateways
When an error code or alarm code is received from CS1000, agatewayCS queries the NortelAlarms.xml dataset for a list of alarm codes to be
ignored (AUD000, TIM000, etc…) or sent up to the webservice for processing.
If the error code is to be processed, an HTTP WebRequest containing the alarm variables is POSTED to the AlarmTraq API webservice located in your NOC using the most advanced encryption
protocols available, AES-256 provides you with peace of mind and the highest level of security. It's the same encryption your bank uses.
Raspberry Pi 4 with USB serial connection to CS1000
Version 3.0 (1/1/2020) includes several improvments including
Runs on Linux or Windows, from the tiny Raspberry Pi (see above) to a CentOS virtual machine
Compatable with most USB to serial converters to connect to CS1000 TTY port
Use of wildcards in the alarm filters to simplify blocking of needless alarms at the source
Supports alarming from multiple Call Servers, Signaling Servers, and Media Gateways via SNMP
agatewayCS - CS1000 Alarming Gateway (16:08)
Runs as a Linux service
Provides a customizable list of alarm codes and error messages that should be filtered which prevents excessive or unwanted alarm
codes from being processed. If an alarm code matches an entry in the filters table it will be ignored (AUD000, TIM000, etc…).
In the example below, An entry of CSC will filter all CSCxxx messages while an entry of CSC1 would filter all CSC1xx messages
