Abstract

See full text

An Outage Measurement System (OMS) monitors and measures outage data at a network processing device. The outage data can be stored in the device and transferred to a Network Management System (NMS) or other correlation tool for deriving outage information. The OMS automates the outage measurement process and is more accurate, efficient and cost effective than previous outage measurement systems.
