Centrally coordinating configurations for the CERTIUM VCS system

Full and tangible employment of fundamental CERTIUM ecosystem design concepts, the R&S®VCMS combines modular design, central control and reliability through redundancy. It is crucial within the CERTIUM VCS system, where it stores all device configuration settings in a common central location, which also has a redundant backup. Together with the R&S RCMS remote control service, the two devices are the management branch of CERTIUM. SQL and HTTP provide full IP compatibility, enabling R&S®DB5400 to offer password protected web access to its database.

Features & benefits

Centralized configuration and management

Intuitive management of distributed VCSs, gateways and SBCs

Reliability and maintainability are essential to the CERTIUM philosophy. Centralized management of distributed systems is a sophisticated way to enhance both. Separating devices and their configurations provides an extra layer of resilience to a system. In the unlikely event of a device failure, its impact will be limited to a piece of hardware without compromising the more global system configuration settings.

Centralized radiomonitoring and control

Benefit from a flexible topology to monitor distant radio sites remotely

At the core of the R&S®DB5400 VCMS server sits the radio remote control management (RRCM) system. It enables an additional level of communications between individual radios and network management. The R&S®DB5400 also allows remote control and monitoring, e.g. between a control center and a radio site hundreds of miles apart.

Quad redundancy concept

Set of multiple redundancy mechanisms for unmatched ATC reliability

Four is better than one. With the R&S®DB5400 VCMS server, Rohde & Schwarz has introduced a unique quad redundancy topology with two pairs of two redundant servers each, ensuring overall system availability of 99.999 % (a.k.a. 'five nines'). In addition to that, the VCS supports dedicated protocols such as PRP. Thanks to the network's sophisticated architecture, redundancy can be extended to entire control centers and radio sites.
