FCAPS

Acronym for Fault, Configuration, Accounting, Performance, and Security, FCAPS is the key concept used to define the overall functionality of an enterprise management system. The idea of FCAPS stems directly from ITU.T recommendations that describes the five different types of information handled by management systems as the following:

  • Fault Management: alarm handling, trouble detection, trouble correction, test and acceptance, network recovery
  • Configuration Management: system turn-up, network provisioning, auto-discovery, back up and restore, database handling
  • Accounting Management: track service usage, bill for services
  • Performance Management: data collection, report generation, data analysis
  • Security Management: control NE access, enable NE functions, access logs
