What is EMS (Element management system)?

An element management system (EMS) comprises frameworks and applications for overseeing network elements (NE) on the network element-management layer (NEL) of the Telecommunications Management Network (TMN) model. An element management system oversees at least one of a particular kind of telecommunications network component. The EMS deals with the capacities and abilities inside each NE except dealing with the traffic between various NEs in the organization.
