How to connect Preseem to your Telrad EPC (topology mappings)
Preseem can query the BreezeVIEW API to map each UE to its eNodeB. This enables Preseem to measure QoE metrics for each eNodeB, and in the future, to apply its Active Queue Management algorithms to maximize the QoE of customers attached to a congested eNodeB.
To setup the Preseem-Telrad integration, you will need to provide the following:
- The hostname or IP address of your BreezeVIEW server. Since this is usually accessible only within the management network, Preseem is usually setup to connect to it from the Preseem appliance.
- The username and password of a BreezeVIEW account. We recommend creating a new read-only account for this purpose; instructions for this are provided below.
Once you have this information, start a conversation in the Preseem web application, and provide it to us. We will then configure Preseem to connect to the BreezeVIEW API; after that, Preseem will automatically keep in sync with BreezeVIEW.
To create a new BreezeVIEW user, login to BreezeVIEW as an administrative user.
Use the menu at the top left of the screen to open a CLI window:
Once the CLI opens, type
adduser and press enter. Follow the prompts to create the user; an example is below.
