  • Using a model-based approach for monitoring telecommunication networks: the GASPAR system

    Publication Year: 1997 , Page(s): 5/1 - 5/2

    The authors address the use of model-based techniques for diagnosing telecommunication networks. The aim is to design a system for the supervision of packet switching in the French telecommunication network, in such a way as to be both generic and efficient. i.e., to support technological evolution and to meet real time constraints. The basic idea of their work is to use the model for simulation a... View full abstract»

  • Knowledge-based diagnostic systems in the Internet

    Publication Year: 1997 , Page(s): 9/1 - 9/4

    The Internet offers the possibility to get access to distributed information. We present a diagnostic expert system shell kit D3 in which an http-server was integrated to allow one to run a full diagnostic process via a normal web browser. This way, it is also possible to serve an arbitrary number of different users with the same knowledge base. Further more, the web technology was used to impleme... View full abstract»

  • Intelligent agents for network management

    Publication Year: 1997 , Page(s): 2/1 - 2/4

    A communication network is a set of nodes that are interconnected by links to permit the exchange of information. We model it as a network graph. A need to exchange information between two nodes is called a demand. Each demand requires a certain quality of service (QoS) when transferred through the network. The required QoS depends on the type of information to transmit and is constrained using se... View full abstract»

  • The use of artificial intelligence based systems for the summarisation and diagnosis of events on electrical power networks

    Publication Year: 1997 , Page(s): 6/1 - 6/4

    This paper describes the development and operation of two mature “expert systems” which both have the common objective of providing decision support for electrical power system operations staff. Both systems operate on telemetry data, typically obtained from the utility's SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system in order to provide useful information in the form of event...

  • Abstractions: their purpose and application in telecommunications

    Publication Year: 1997 , Page(s): 8/1 - 810

    The successful deployment of any software system depends on its ability to communicate with its environment. In the case of decision support systems, this means that the computer must be able to communicate with human decision makers. Since humans do not normally communicate in the same cumbersome language as a computer implementation, this means that the issue of finding appropriate abstractions ... View full abstract»

  • AI applications in power systems operation

    Publication Year: 1997 , Page(s): 7/1 - 7/5
    Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (400 KB)  

    Despite the high degree of satisfaction reported by the electric utilities which pioneered the implementation of expert systems in their control centres, the number of actual implementations of such systems in control centres remains quite small compared to the number of systems successfully demonstrated in prototype form. This discrepancy suggests that these companies have unanswered concerns abo... View full abstract»

  • Broadband hypermedia

    Publication Year: 1997 , Page(s): 4/1 - 4/4
    Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (568 KB)  

    This paper describes the integration of broadband services into a distributed hypermedia system. The services under consideration are video telephony, video conferencing, transfer of multimedia information and support for cooperative work. Milestones in the evaluation of this system were: provision of a workstation based multimedia platform, adding capabilities of distributed data retrieval, imple... View full abstract»

  • Agent-oriented middleware for telecommunications network and service management

    Publication Year: 1997 , Page(s): 3/1 - 3/4
    Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (376 KB)  

    This report introduces an architecture for agent-oriented middleware (an extension and generalisation of object-oriented middleware), and considers the use and usability of agent-oriented middleware for network and service management in telecommunications applications. This is research being undertaken as part of the EPSRC-funded CASBAh project (Common Agent Service Brokering Architecture) and is ... View full abstract»

    Provision of service to business and residential customers, network maintenance and fault repair are some of the core activities of large telecommunications companies which involve thousands of technicians everyday. BT has developed a fully automated system for its workforce management called Work Manager. Work Manager has led to efficient and effective utilisation of the BT workforce. The system ...
