This document will guide through the steps of adding a new user to the SimcardDB which will be queried by eNBs in regular intervals for new IDs. For following this howto, it is required to have:
The eNB will query the SimcardDB in regular intervals for new simcard ids. In this section we will add a simcard to the SimcardDB. You could then investigate when the simcard id becomes available on the eNB and whether it can be used (both steps are not part of the howto).
Start by logging into your NMS Dashboard.
Click on the Services button on the to see currently instantiated services.
Click Add in the subheader to add a new service.
Select SimcardDB as this is the service we want to provide. The differentiation between instantiating a new SimcardDB and adding a Simcard will be made using the configuration parameter Software-Type in the next steps.
Please choose the latest version.
Software Type SimCard, choose the computer which supplied the SimcardDB and fill out the
configuration parameters as shown.
Click Proceed to continue.
Refresh the page to see the new instance. Click on it once appears.
Wait and refresh the page from time to time until the status changes from Start Requested. Once your instance has been deployed the SimcardId should be propagated to the eNB/EPC associated with the underlying SimcardDB.
