Applying Service Engineering Principles to TMN Systems

Lewis, David, Tiropanis, Thanassis, Shi, Rong and Richter, Alexander (1996) Applying Service Engineering Principles to TMN Systems In Proceedings of the Telecommunications Information Networking Conference 1996, TINA '96, Heidelberg, Germany, October 1996. VDE-Verlag GmbH, Berlin., pp. 265-266.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Recent work in distributed and telecommunication systems has become increasingly oriented towards applications in a global open market in telecommunications services, as the effects of liberalisation take hold. The areas of network and service management will be essential to competitiveness in this market, however the technologies and system development techniques widely used today (i.e. SNMP and CMIP) were conceived to address the needs of large corporate data networks and monolithic public telecommunication networks. How these technologies and techniques can be applied to management in an open market environment is not currently well defined. This paper describes some of the work of the RACE II PROJECT PREPARE in its application of ITU-T TMN recommendations to management solutions in an open services environment. In particular it describes the engineering approach taken to developing TMN systems in an attempt to tailor them to such an environment.
