Abstract

"This volume brings together the full range of topics in telecommunications network management, including the evolution of management techniques and first-hand accounts of management experiences in new technologies and services. The reader will understand how information modeling and distributed management help in simplifying network representation, introducing computing platforms, where necessary, and offsetting operations costs.Telecommunications Network Management is key to successfully keeping up with the increasingly market-driven telecommunications field. It covers a wide range of topics from the evolution of management techniques to the experiences of management in new technologies and services. Where the authors' previous book, NETWORK MANAGEMENT INTO THE 21st CENTURY, introduced network management techniques, standards, and applications, this book covers the implementation of these concepts in today's telecommunications industry. Foremost experts in the field have contributed all original material for this important book that will provide the reader with experiences in implementing management infrastructures for information networking."
