Description
Do you find network management a high-pressure and challenging activity? On a daily basis
must you respond to demands for information on the status of the network, network trends
and optimization? This OSS-RC 10.3 Applications Workshop will give you an introduction to
the applications available in OSS-RC 10.3. for the management of Core, GSM, WCDMA,
LTE and IMS networks.
This course gives an introduction to the various Core Network applications available in OSSRC 10.3 for the Packet and Circuit Switched domains, covering the core nodes for GSM,
WCDMA, SAE and IMS. An introduction is also given to all GSM applications for
management of Ericsson BSS. The full suite of tools for managing an Ericsson WRAN/LTE
network is also covered in this training.
Along with identifying the OSS applications and tools for management of specific
technologies there are also a number of common applications that will be described in this
training, such as those used for fault and performance management.
The course approaches network management proactively, introducing the OSS-RC
applications that are used for the following key aspects of network management:
•
Finding the current status of the network, and troubleshooting the
network in the event of errors.
•
Identifying trends in the network, prediciting problems and optimising
the network as a result.
•
Regular maintanance tasks to keep the network running smoothly at all
times.
After the course, the participants should have a basic understanding of how to use all the
common OSS-RC applications and of how to proceed using the application themselves.
Note: While this course covers all technologies and their management using OSS-RC, some
participants may only require knowledge of just one or two technologies, in which case one
of the following courses may be more suitable:

Along with identifying the OSS applications and tools for management of the WCDMA/LTE
networks specific technologies there are also a number of common applications that will be
described in this training, such as those used for fault and performance management.
The course approaches network management proactively, introducing the OSS-RC
applications that are used for the following key aspects of network management:
•
Finding the current status of the network, and troubleshooting the
network in the event of errors.
•
Identifying trends in the network, prediciting problems and optimising
the network as a result.
•
Regular maintanance tasks to keep the network running smoothly at all
times.
After the course, the participants should have a basic understanding of how to use all the
common OSS-RC applications and of how to proceed using the application themselves.

Ericsson Network IQ 2 Report Migration Workshop
LZU 108 7730 R1A
Description
You are impressed with the ENIQ performance management….
You are now acquainted with the ENIQ Operation using product reports, but sometimes you
feel lost with the comprehensiveness of this new Performance Management solution.
You know ENIQ is an improvement on the previous solutions, in terms of performance and
capacity, but you were used to the old ways, with the old reports. You feel some reports are
missing, some information seems to no be available, and you do not know where to start.
ENIQ Overview and ENIQ Operation trainings were aimed at developing your competency in
using ENIQ from scratch.
This ENIQ Migration Workshop will guide you in the process of mapping your existing reports
to ensure all your information is taken into account. It will be based on a migration from SDM
to ENIQ as a use case, but will provide you with techniques to perform migrations from other
systems.
It will also demonstrate some of the most common pitfalls in migrating your reports, in order
to retain as much backward compatibility as possible. At this stage the conceptual;
differences between your previous PM solution and ENIQ will become clearer.
Finally it will train you in the use of the Alarm Module, to allow you to raise alarms
automatically when certain Performance Management thresholds are reached.
At the end of this course you will be able to migrate yourself reports of low to medium
complexity, and you will be able to prepare and monitor the migration of more complex
reports if you require Ericsson to take care of them as a service.
Note: This course does not deal with specific counter values or KPI’s interpretation, this is
covered in the corresponding PM course. It is not a substitute for Business Objects training if
you are involved in developing reports.

Ericsson Network IQ 2, System Administration
LZU 108 7731 R1A
Description
“Ericsson Network IQ (ENIQ) does not need to be administered.”
That is mostly true of the ENIQ database itself, but as an overall system it still needs to be
managed.
This course is for anyone responsible for the administration of the Ericsson Network IQ
System. It will focus on the daily, weekly and monthly task to be performed by an ENIQ
System Administrator. It will also give a larger perspective by experiencing the reporting
aspect of ENIQ, and by looking at what happens behind the scene to make ENIQ a futureproof performance management solution.
Note: This course will detail the administration of ENIQ; it does not deal with specific counter
values or KPI’s interpretation, this is covered in the corresponding PM course. It is not a

ENIQ 11 Statistics, Report migration workshop
LZU108 8100 R1A
Description
You are impressed with the ENIQ performance management capabilities.
You are now acquainted with the operation of ENIQ using product and customer reports, but
sometimes you feel lost with the comprehensiveness of this new performance tool.
You know ENIQ is an improvement on the previous solutions, in terms of performance and
capacity, but you were used to the old ways, with the old reports. You feel some reports are
missing, some counter information seems to no be available, and you do not know where to
start.
ENIQ 11 Statistics, Overview and ENIQ 11 Statistics, Operation courses were aimed at
developing your competency in using ENIQ from scratch.
This ENIQ Migration Workshop will guide you in the process of mapping your existing reports
to ensure all your information is taken into account. It will be based on a migration from SDM
to ENIQ as a use case, but will provide you with startegies to perform migrations from other
systems.
It will also demonstrate some of the most common pitfalls in migrating your reports, in order
to retain as much backward compatibility as possible. At this stage the conceptual
differences between your previous PM solution and ENIQ will become clearer.
This workshop is extremely flexible, and is aimed at resolving real-life issues. Therefore it is
even more beneficial if delivered on your equipment.
At the end of this course you will be able to migrate yourself reports of low to medium
complexity, and you will be able to prepare and monitor the migration of more complex
reports if you require Ericsson to take care of them as a service.
Note: This course does not deal with specific counter values or KPI’s interpretation, this is
covered in the corresponding PM courses. It is not a substitute for Business Objects training
