    Standards play a vital role in bringing an industry to widespread commercial use. Without standardization, interoperability of comparable systems and services is impossible, and economies of scale are never reached for manufacturing and investment. Historically, the standards are established either by a dominant player in a particular industry, e.g., IBM/Microsoft's development of DOS, or by coord... View full abstract»

    Pahlavan (1985) published an article entitled "Wireless office information networks". That article examined spread spectrum, standard radio and infrared (IR) technologies for intra-office wireless networking. In May of that year the FCC released the ISM (industrial, scientific, and medical) bands for spread spectrum local communications. Although ISM bands are not restricted to any specific applic...

    ATM has rapidly transitioned from a standards and prototyping concept to become the next-generation switching technology used in products available on the market. With the rapid introduction of ATM switches into networks, there is an urgent need to manage them. The article discusses the telecommunication management network (TMN) interfaces being defined for management systems to communicate with A... View full abstract»

    Introduces the work being performed in ETSI and ITU-T on the management of IN and on IN and TMN harmonization. After a short history of, and rationale for the work in this area, a brief overview of the results achieved in ETSI's joint experts group on IN/TMN is provided. This includes the proposed mapping of the IN functional entities onto TMN function blocks and the proposal for integration of IN... View full abstract»

    Since the early 1980s, the standards bodies have been specifying the telecommunications management network (TMN) principles. Millions of dollars have been spent. The TMN principles aim at being applicable across telecommunications technologies. They recommend the use of independent management networks to manage telecommunications networks, elements in the telecommunications networks (managed netwo... View full abstract»

    Studies the teletraffic issues of the Global System of Mobile Communications at 900 MHz (GSM900), and its sister, the Digital Communication System at 1800 MHz (DCS1800). The teletraffic simulations have the essential elements of GSM900 and DCS1800, but they are not be exact simulations of these two systems. The approach is to site microcellular base stations, using the microcellular prediction too... View full abstract»

    Reviews some of the guiding principles of TMN that were applied, or consciously not applied, to the development of GSM network management. The organization of the work within the sub-technical committee and the resultant organization of the specifications are described. The article also introduces the model for the management of a GSM network, as well as some of the philosophy behind this model. C... View full abstract»

    The article presents the scope of TMN standards, identifies the role and importance of interface standards, and describes the key elements of a TMN interface. TMN activities within the ITU-T, from an organizational perspective, are summarized and a more detailed description of the ITU-T specifications, organized primarily by interface element categories is given. The author examines the availabili... View full abstract»

    Synchronous digital hierarchy (SDH) equipment based on fiber optics, SDH interfaces, and supporting operation systems (OSs) was introduced into Nippon Telegraph and Telephone (NTT)'s transmission-line networks beginning in 1989. One of the major problems in the first phase was less intelligent proprietary interfaces between network elements (NEs) and OSs, which caused limited connectivity among di... View full abstract»
