Abstract

The large diversity of existing computer networks associated with the need for integrated solutions encompassing resources and services has resulted in proposals being put forward for international standards. The aim of these proposals has been to facilitate interoperability and interconnectivity of systems from various suppliers. Within this context, and making reference to the ISO and ITU-T standards for system and network management, this paper presents an extension to the OSIMIS (OSI Management Information Service) management platform through implementing the Usage Metering Function. An application is described demonstrating practical features of the implemented function.
