  • Publication number: 20240121152
    Abstract: When a controller receives a tunnel setting order from a high-order Ops (operation system), the controller divides the setting order into a first setting processing step related to setting registration of a user, a second setting processing step related to a transfer surface of the tunnel, a third setting processing step related to an interface of each transfer apparatus used for a tunnel of the transfer surface, and a fourth setting processing step related to a parameter to be set to the interface and stores the setting processing steps in a setting management DB. Subsequently, the controller creates a configuration for executing each setting processing step indicated in the tunnel setting order by reflecting information indicated in each divided setting processing step to a template of each setting processing step. In addition, the controller inputs the created configuration to a transfer apparatus at a setting destination of the tunnel.
