Among the leading challenges faced by systems managers today is the coherent management of network resources in a multi-domain, multi-environment. The MISA Project - Management of Integrated SDH and ATM Networks - brought together researchers from 17 organizations to explore and advance the state of the art in developing enabling mechanisms for end-to-end management solutions across multi-domain and multi-technology networks. These mechanisms enable interoperability between management domains, between heterogeneous network technology, and between service and network management functions in a multi-provider environment. Multi-Domain Communication Management Systems reports on the experiences of the MISA Project researchers. It provides guidance for the deployment of multi-domain management systems and offers a solid basis for the implementation of solutions to the challenges of converging data network technologies. System managers will learn the techniques and mechanisms for end-to-end management problems; network management vendors will understand the benefits and limitations of current practices and standards as they apply to multi-domain management issues; and students and researchers of advanced communications management will discover important concepts and issues related to the management of networks.Typically, today, the setting up and reconfiguration of such connections are performed through manual actions using faxes and telephone calls. ... Currently, ATM and SDH are the most popular technologies for supporting broadband telecommunication. ... in LAN/CPN domains, the SDH transmission technology is more ubiquitous among the national carriers and bearer transmission service providers.
