Nortel Preside Multiservice Data Manager (MDM) is an element management system (EMS) for managing faults, configuration, accounting, performance, and security of Nortel's telecommunications network and devices.
For details about Nortel MDM operation and concepts, see the Nortel product documentation.
The MDMConnector integrates Nortel Preside MDM telecommunication networks and devices with 
CA Spectrum
's Telco EMS Manager. MDMConnector runs on the same machine as the MDM application. Nortel Preside MDM uses a node to represent any managed element, including devices, ports, cards, shelves, and so on. Links, which are a physical or logical connection between two nodes, are also supported. When you discover and model a network managed by MDM, the MDMConnector queries the MDM Network Modeling server for nodes and links and forwards them to 
CA Spectrum
. MDMConnector also registers with the MDM Alarm and Status server for events and forwards them to 
CA Spectrum
. MDMConnector periodically checks status of MDM and reports it to 
CA Spectrum
 along with its own status through the heartbeat mechanism.
