The revenue eXtraction gateway (rXg) is RG Nets' next-generation IP data and voice revenue generating network gateway, combining the latest technologies to maximize operator profitability and minimize cost. This operation manual describes how to use the features and functionality present on each corresponding view of the rXg administrative console.

This operation manual assumes that the rXg device has been properly installed by a certified technician or qualified engineer associated with an entity that has a current RG Nets operator support agreement. Before continuing to use this manual on a newly installed rXg, please review the rXg installation and initial configuration guide. You can always find the latest version of the rXg quick start guide in the FAQ section of the RG Nets customer portal. Once you have gone through the rXg installation process, you will have the URL and access credentials for the RG Nets customer portal.

The primary mechanism used to navigate within the rXg administrative console is the menu at the top of each page. The menu is present at the top of all views of the console and allows quick access to all functionality.

Each of the buttons of the main menu represents a subsystem of the rXg. The primary link on each button leads to a dashboard of that subsystem. The menu text of the primary button becomes red to indicate which subsystem is currently being viewed.

Bringing the mouse pointer over a primary menu button and holding it there will reveal a sub-menu for each section. The links in the sub-menu bring up views to configure the various aspects of the subsystem. Once again, red indicates the subsystem that is currently being displayed.

A side panel menu can be accessed by clicking the arrow icon to the left of the screen. This side panel menu contains a history of the 4 most recently visited pages, as well as context-sensitive links to related configuration and informational pages.

Data Display, Sorting and Searching

Operator manipulation of data in the rXg administrative console is accomplished through AJAX enabled scaffolds. Each view consists of one or more scaffolds for various data aspects that can be manipulated to configure the subsystem.

Scaffolds display pertinent properties directly in the list view. Each of the column headers may be clicked to sort the data. Clicking the same column header again toggles the sort between ascending and descending. For example, if the first field header is clicked on the Accounts scaffold, the records are sorted by login.

Clicking on the login field header again reverses the sort. The data is now presented as a descending list.

Similarly, clicking on the third field header twice changes the sort to be descending by time.

Scaffolds containing a large number of records are automatically paginated. Navigation through the pages is accomplished through a set of links on the lower right corner of the scaffold. If the scaffold does not contain enough records for pagination, the pagination controls will not be displayed.

The previous and next links move backward and forward through the pages of records. The numbers enable quick access to a specific page.

The search link displays a form that enables the list display to be limited to items that match the data entered into the search field.

This is extremely useful when looking for a particular record in a scaffold that has a large data-set. In the example below, entering "baker" into the search field reduces the dataset from 94 to 2.

Clicking on the show link at the right of each record displays all of the detailed information available for that record.

Screen space limitations dictate that a reduced set of fields be present in the list view. Using the show link gives access to the other fields stored in the record. In addition to payload fields, meta-data fields such as the create and last update time, as well as the creator's administrative login and last updater may be seen in the detailed display.

Some scaffolds have additional per-record display capabilities. These can be accessed by using the additional links displayed at the right side of the list view. For example, several scaffolds can display per-record graphs.

To close a show, graph, help or other detailed display drop down, click on the white X in the red box at the top right of the detailed display area.

Data Entry and Export

The create new link found at the upper right is used to add data to the scaffold. Some scaffolds, such as those found in instruments , do not have a create new link because data cannot be directly added to the scaffold. When the create new link is clicked, a drop down appears with the fillable form elements available when creating a new record.

A new record is created immediately upon clicking the create button. If any errors are detected during the record creation, they are displayed inline in the form. The original data entered is preserved. Simply change the data to conform to the requirements and hit create to try to create the record again.

The export link allows the operator to download the data in the scaffold as a separated value text format. By clicking the export link, a drop down will appear that enables the configuration of the download. By default, the export mechanism will download all data in the scaffold with headers in a comma separated value (CSV) format.

Once downloaded, the data can be imported into a broad spectrum of software. For example, Microsoft Excel can import the data to create graphs and Crystal Reports can import the data for customized report generation.
