Circuit to Packet Network Software Overview
This topic provides an overview of the software components of the CTPView Network Management System and the CTP platforms.
A typical Circuit to Packet network consists of one or more CTP platforms and a CTPView server. The CTPView server runs the CTPView Network Management System software to manage the CTP platforms and construct the circuit-to-packet traffic bundles.
The software components consist of the following:
CTPOS—Operating system that runs on the CTP platforms.
Fedora Core (FC) OS—Operating system that runs on the CTPView server.
CTPView Network Management System—Software that you use to build circuits and manage the CTP platforms. You can access this software through a browser application or through a text-based menu set.
In this document, we use the term CTPView GUI to refer to the browser application, and the term CTPView server menu to refer to the text-based menus. CTPView software typically refers to the CTPView Network Management System without regard to the method used to access the server.
