Abstract

Network Management covers a very broad range of complex functionalities and services. For example, Telecommunications Management applications vary from high level customer administrations systems to low level network monitoring and maintenance systems. It is not surprising, therefore, that these systems exert divergent pressures on the computing platforms which support them. However, despite these pressures, there is a strong need to facilitate management application interaction and interoperability. This paper describes a general architecture flexible and powerful enough to support three contrasting management systems whilst facilitating integrated management. The paper outlines the requirements exerted by each management application on a computing platform. It describes three profiles based both on components of the general architecture and the specific requirements of each of these management applications. Finally core infrastructure components, required by a range of TMN applications, are identified and examined and TMN specific technology is highlighted.
