YateMMI is a Mobile Management Interface intended to control and configure Core network equipment and Radio Network equipment (RAN equipment are not yet supported).
You can log in on the MMI using any browser, if you forward YateMMI port 80 to 127.0.0.1 on port 2080, web address will be http://127.0.0.1:2080/mmi/
YateMMI is organised in contexts, modules and submenus as shown in the below picture.
Each context has a software wizard (setup assistant), more wizards or none which will lead the user through a series of reasonable steps, to perform configuration easier.
Note: More details can be found in YateMMI Concepts section.
Only one MMI can be present in a network.
Usually, when an equipment is purchased, MMI is configured for that equipment.
Network configuration is the first step for setting up the MMI, here generic information about the network will be set (network name, type, dialect, indicator; APNs; Diameter support; STP settings, etc.)
Some of these information will be used in the later added on network equipment. Specific configuration parameters for each equipment will be set when adding one.
MMI can be used to configure “just YateHSS/HLR” for an existing network or can be used to configure major equipment (YateHSS/HRL, YateUCN, YateSMSC) of a Core network using setup type: “Extending Network” .
Setting up a network in just YateHSS/HLR mode is used when you want to add just an YateHSS/HLR to your network, mostly used by mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs)
More details about YateHSS/HRL can be found here.
Setting up a network in “Extending network” mode is recommended when you want to add other types of equipment to your network, not just YateHSS/HLR.
For the moment YateMMI can be used to configure YateUCN, YateHSS/HLR and Diameter/SS7 settings for YateSMSC and YateUSGW.
Note: You can add the rest of the equipment (with Add custom equipment), see their status, view logs and download configuration.
To add an equipment go to Equipment context (menu entry) and click Add equipment and a software wizard will help you with configuration steps/sections.
Note: You can use navigation buttons (from the bottom right corner of the screen: [Previous], [Next], [Skip], [Finish]) to return to a previous step or fast move between wizard steps.
Note: Multiple different equipment can be installed on the device and there might also be the same equipment multiple times (for example: there may be multiple YateUCN, YateHSS, etc.)
After completion of a wizard, a notice will appear and ask if you would like to Apply changes.
After pressing “Apply” four new options will appear:
- The settings will be saved and the equipment will restart to apply the new changes;
- Restarting will close current connections (sigtran, diameter, s1ap, etc). All connections will need to be restored.
- It can take several minutes and is not advised in Production environment.
- The settings will be saved and the equipment will reload to apply the new changes;
- The connections won’t be closed (sigtran, diameter, s1ap, etc).
- It’s the preferred method for Production environment since the connection between network nodes won’t be interrupted.
- There are cases when a restart will be necessary instead.
- The settings will be saved, but you must restart/reload the device manually to apply them;
- In order for the changes to be applied you will have to restart/reload manually the device, otherwise the changes will only be saved locally;
- This procedure is recommended for Production environment, but engineers needs to know the right way of reloading.
- Settings will be merged, but only locally;
- This means the changes won’t be pushed to the actual equipment, it will only appear on the interface as if the changes are made; in reality the equipment will still have the old configuration;
- It is advised to use this command in very specific situations only. Depending on the state of the equipment you might need to run “Force config” afterwards.
Depending on the MMI user rights, a second notice can appear, from here you can push the changes to equipment immediately, if Allow web apply is enabled.
Note: Sometimes if your new settings are not applied to the equipment or any problem appears, it's required to click Reset tries and then Push changes now
- Use right button [Edit] or click on the equipment and press [Edit] button.
- Navigate to the step/section you need to make changes and then click [Finish].
- By default there aren’t any SIM profiles imported in MMI: You can add a SIM profile from SIM profiles submenu by clicking [Add] or [Import]
- If you have purchased an equipment from us, we already imported the SIM profile and the SIMs to your MMI.
- If you have purchased an equipment from us, we already added CS/PS/IMS profiles to your MMI.
Subscriber management context is available only after YateHSS/HLR equipment was added. If you define more than one YateHSS/HLR equipment, they will be synchronized through the clustering module and every change in Subscriber management will be reflected in any added YateHSS/HLR. MMI will connect to the first defined YateHSS/HLR and push changes to it.
- Before you can add SIMs you need to add a SIM profile to assign SIMs to it.
- You can import/export SIMs from/to a file
- The file type must be .csv or .out
For more details regarding SIM importation to YateMMI, please check our documentation.
- Add/Edit subscribers
- Before you can add subscribers, you need to have SIMs added, to assign subscribers to them.
- Add/Edit bookmarked subscribers
- Use Add user button from the bottom left corner.
- Allow web apply: If set to true the user will be allowed to push changes on equipment directly from the interface without waiting for the cron to run.
- Each MMI user is listed in a table row, here you can find Edit and Delete buttons. (picture below)
