FCAPS is an acronym for fault, configuration, accounting, performance, security. The term is widely used to describe the full range of network management tasks. This article is intended to explain how the AggreGate Network Manager complies with the FCAPS model.
Being an umbrella IT management system, AggreGate Network Manager covers hundreds of monitoring and management objectives which are implied by FCAPS. While competing systems often require purchasing a suite of diverse products, AggreGate Network Manager includes all NMS modules in a single software package with a very simple licensing model.
The below sections briefly list FCAPS objectives tackled by the Network Manager. However, the underlying AggreGate IoT Platform with its data modeling and visualization capabilities makes it easy to extend any specific installation with other functions matching the FCAPS concept.
