Towards integrated network management for ATM and SDH networks supporting a global broadband connectivity management service
This paper reflects the initial work of the ACTS Project AC080 MISA, a three year project, started at the beginning of 1996, whose main task is to accomplish and validate an integrated end-to-end management of hybrid SDH and ATM networks in the framework of open network provision (ONP) via European field trials.
This paper provides the initial description of an integrated network management of ATM and SDH networks and the definition of a new Service called Global Broadband Connectivity Management (GBCM), enabled through TMN. The enterprise model supporting both topics is described.
The GBCM service offers the required functionality to establish and manage end-to-end broadband connections in a multi-domain business environment. Its implementation by the MISA project, within trials across Europe, aims for an efficient management of the network resources of SDH and ATM infrastructure, while meeting the quality of service and the needs of a number of telecommunications actors: customers, value-added service providers and network providers.
