Total reliability management for telecommunications software is essential in achieving high quality network products and a high level of network integrity. The special characteristics and reliability goals of telecommunications software are reviewed, followed by a description of the components of an effective strategy for comprehensive software reliability management. The programs of fault prevention, fault detection, fault removal, failure detection, failure diagnosis, and failure tolerance are shown to accomplish these goals. In addition, specific and advanced techniques for building these programs are discussed. The relationship of these techniques to the special characteristics of telecommunications software, and their coordination with each other is explained. The total reliability management for telecommunications software requires efforts from both suppliers and services providers
