Use SQL Server management Studio to restore the backup to your Analysis Services instance.
After connecting to Analysis Services, right-click the Databases node and select Restore…, browse to the .ABF file and restore the database to the server. After that, it should show up as a database. The documentation can be found here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms174874(v=sql.110).aspx
