    An approach to integrated network management that eliminates the need for interface protocol conformance and provides applications that seamlessly isolate and resolve faults in the entire network is described. The approach uses off-the-shelf artificial intelligence tools and open-architecture client/server workstation technology. A sophisticated tool similar to a fourth-generation language, called...

    The development of a traffic engineering and administration software system for use in administering a private AT&T corporate wide area network (CWAN) is described. The traffic administration system discussed is intended to aid network administrators in periodically, e.g., weekly, engineering the CWAN. The objective of this ongoing engineering process is to minimize network facilities and equipmen... View full abstract»

    Management of IBM's Systems Network Architecture (SNA) peer-to-peer communication, called low-entry networking (LEN), is discussed. Prior to LEN, all host communications were hierarchical. LEN allows nodes like personal computers, AS400, and host applications to communicate with each other through the subarea network as peers. LEN nodes allow cooperative processing, initiate parallel and multiple ... View full abstract»
