Dear All,

I doubt this place is the right place to ask this question, anyway here I go.

We are an WISP that provide WiMAX broadband services, we have multiple service plateforms such as mail, ftp, web, dns etc... but all of those services are on dedicated hardware ressources. I would like to know, is there any webbased software that manages such service infrastructure, but at Carrier-Grade Level ?

I guess that it depends on what you consider to be carrier grade!

For those standards, I personally use Webmin:

www.webmin.com

It's continued to run on a Linux problem and I have records of it running in a number of cases for over 2 years without any problems. Incidentally, that is better than all of the UK carriers that have provided services for me!

Having said that I guess that if you are looking to go to the 'extreme' of reliability, then you may wish to be compiling those services to run under QNX rather than Linux:

www.qnx.com

This Posix OS is used in aircraft control and carrier grade applications. I believe that Cisco uses it in it's latest routers.

Well you see we have several services on Debian, it's a historic choice. I have reviewed webmin, but how can I interact with 6 web servers, 2 Mail servers, 2 DNS Servers ??? Can I do this with WebMin ? You see what I was looking for is an Service Provisionning Automation Plateforme. An OSS to be precise.

-> Sales creates an account for a 1024K DSL Connection
-> Sales Activates the account -> upon activation client services are provided.

Yes you can - Each system has webmin installed, and any of the webmin installations can be configured to integrate with any others.

This is probably going to require cusomisation of a software package for you. I'm afraid that this type of software is going to be very specialised (and probably expensive). I had a similar type of system when working in Belgium but it was totally created in house.

Some of the other experts here may have better knowledge of packages used in your area.
