    The authors suggest that one must view the network itself as the customer's database, and make sure it is self-diagnosing, self-healing, and intelligent. The perspective that the network is the database means moving away from the feeling that no trouble means total health, towards more preemptive maintenance. With fiber, capacity as a limiting factor is no longer an issue; the creative work will b... View full abstract»

    The author notes that standard network management has certainly had a great impact on the industry. However, he further points out that it is important to distinguish between two kinds of standards, horizontal and vertical. Horizontal standards, such as management protocols and management objects, can at most provide a technology base for enabling products. However, in order to produce a robust ma...

    It is suggested that a functional model of monitoring in terms of the generation, processing, dissemination, and presentation of information can help determine the facilities needed to design and construct distributed systems. Implementation issues are also discussed, with attention given to the intrusiveness of monitoring systems and object-based implementation. It is concluded that generic monit... View full abstract»

    A family of integrated systems has been developed within Digital's enterprise management architecture (EMA). The product called DECmcc is part of a larger EMA implementation, which consists of both an enterprise management director and a framework for developing consistent and integrated management solutions with EMA. An object-based framework provides time-oriented dispatching of operations and s... View full abstract»

    Network management in large heterogeneous communication environments requires the incorporation of more advanced tools than are currently available, especially in the area of fault management. By providing an informational infrastructure for documenting network behavior and maintenance activities, TTSs (trouble ticket systems) have provided some relief for the fault management problem. Researchers... View full abstract»

    The authors discuss the development of an alarm correlation model and a corresponding software support system that allow efficient specification of alarm correlation by the domain experts themselves. Emphasis is placed on the end-user orientation of IMPACT, the intelligent management platform for alarm correlation tasks which implements the proposed model. The desire was to lower the barrier betwe... View full abstract»

    The authors describe the new challenges presented for the management of broadband networks and outline the framework of the COMET research group at Columbia University for finding solutions to these challenges. They review a prototype that implements some of the requirements for managing the broadband networks of the future. In the COMET framework, management operations are defined in terms of pri...
