User interface manual

5gVision is a suite of next-generation monitoring, alerting, packet sniffing, rate management, routing, and billing solutions that share a common web interface: quick, intuitive, and flexible.


The interface of 5gVision gives you complete control over your environment, allowing you to build your own screen menus, create any screen configurations, apply different color styles, auto-save sorts, filters, intervals and lots of other parameters.

The layout you come up with is individual to your monitoring needs and is independent of other users.

Each screen you create may contain from 1 to 16 information Blocks, for example:
  • you may monitor everything on just one chart canvas,
  • 5gVision User interface, Introduction overview
  • or have 2 Charts, one Report, and one CDR table per screen,
  • 5gVision User interface, Introduction overview
  • or 16 smaller blocks with 4 charts in each to monitor all your parameters at the same time,
  • 5gVision User interface, Introduction overview
  • or customer and vendor rates on the same screen in parallel,
  • 5gVision User interface, Introduction overview
  • or any other combinations.
5gVision is an umbrella term for several products, each of them sharing the same interface, user management and access control principles described in this manual.

Interface concepts

5gVision web interface is extremely flexible and allows full customization through the following features:
  • Interface layout, filters, styles, etc. are saved individually per each user.
  • The Menu tree that is a collection of each user's screens is drag-and-droppable, allowing to add new screens and move them around.
  • The Main screen layout consists of re-sizable functional blocks that can be dragged and dropped to change their position.
  • A possibility to clone screens or a whole environment among users (see Managing users).
  • Restricting users from seeing certain screens, objects, parameters, or from performing certian actions (see User access rules).
  • Very flexible filters and quick sorts in tables, even with thousands of records (Filtering).
  • Convenient table editing tools with group edit/delete.
  • Several default interface styles, as well as a possibility for users to create new styles.

Ways to get help

The Manual can be viewed in several different ways:
  • By opening the User Manual item in the Menu tree on the left. This item is at the top of the Menu tree when you first login, but you can move it in any place you wish. There are manuals for each major product inside this folder. This is a recommended way to work with the manual, as all the cross-links to other manuals will be working, allowing to easily jump to the referenced material.

  • The blue links inside manual pages make it really easy to open other sections of the current manual for a quick reference without interrupting your main reading.
Together with this, each user, upon refresh, is shown a series of Hints about system features, some of which are not so easy to discover. 5gVision User interface, Introduction hints Once a user viewed all the hints and pressed Close and never show, they wont popup any more. A user with Admin rights may also disable hints altogether in the User table, see Managing users.

Initial setup

For most products of the 5gVision suite an initial setup involves the following steps, that can only be performed only by users with the admin roles (see Managing users):
  • Change the default password provided for an Admin account. Passwords are generated randomly for every installation, but you may still change them to something more convenient for you.
  • Add more accounts with admin or user roles for all people in your company that will be using 5gVision. It is important that every person has his/her own login, as various interface configs are individual per each user.
  • If you wish to set up templates to copy pre-defined screen layouts to new users - you may create a new user whose menu/screen layouts will be used as a template, configure the menus and screens, and then clone the screens of this template user to some other users, see Managing users.
