    In recent years the management of the radio spectrum, in terms of deciding which applications and which users should have access to it, has become increasingly difficult. This is due to the dramatic growth in users and applications requiring radio spectrum and the need from the government for increasing openness and fairness in making decisions. A number of spectrum managers have investigated the ... View full abstract»

    Current network management depends on centralized monitoring, analysis, and control by operations staff who must manipulate detailed and often obscure element instrumentation. This complex and labor-intensive management paradigm has been stretched to its limits by the scale and complexity of emerging networks. This article describes the use of delegated agents to distribute and automate management... View full abstract»

    This article addresses the problem of embedding a robust copyright label into image data for identifying the ownership and distribution of the digitized image. The article first defines a reasonable set of functional requirements and design criteria for an image copyright labeling system, and then describes a labeling method using a JPEG model-based, frequency-hopped, randomly sequenced pulse posi...

    The Simple Network Management Protocol is the most widely used protocol for the management of IP-based networks and internets. The original version, now known as SNMPv1, is widely deployed. SNMPv2 adds functionality to the original version but does not address its security limitations; this relatively recent standard has not achieved much acceptance. An effort is currently underway to develop SNMP... View full abstract»

    In response to telecom and computer industry forces, TMN standardization activities within the International Telecommunication Union have been consolidated and have been extended through complementary efforts in other fora and consortia. Efforts to widen the TMN technology choices, particularly in support of distributed management, have also been initiated with the support of these groups View full abstract»

    We present a mixed-integer programming model for the problem of designing a survivable capacitated network, and describe a cutting plane algorithm for its solution. The model and the solution methods are integrated in our network dimensioning tool, DISCNET. Given a communication demand between each pair of switching nodes in a region, the task is to determine the topology of a telecommunication ne... View full abstract»

    Data communications standards to allow exchange of information between two application processes in different heterogeneous computing environments have been developed by International Standards groups. With the development of these standards, the need for managing the communications protocols was realized as part of both the Internet and OSI standards suites. This article addresses the network man... View full abstract»

    This article is a description of the Web-Based Enterprise Management initiative. It discusses both the substance of the initiative itself, in the form of the overall architectural approach implied by WBEM, and the industry context that gave rise to WBEM. The industry context is the current state of management systems and software, standardization efforts, and the actual systems being managed. Thes... View full abstract»
