商品描述

GET THE EDGE with a high-performance service management system


In the IETF we tend to approach the Network Management issue in little pieces, building blocks if you like. This book takes a look at a much broader picture and uses SNMP building blocks as a way of describing how to create a complete Network and Service Management System. -- Bert Wijnen, Co-Area Director, Operations and Management, IETF


Considering the crudeness of the network management tools available it is a wonder that IP data networks work at all, and it is no wonder that creating new value added services is, at best, a challenge. In this book Jon provides a detailed and complete guide to the tools and technologies that currently exist and a roadmap of the areas of future development which may yet provide network management tools on a par with SNA and the telephone world. This is must-have information for every network planner, manager, and management software developer.
-- Scott Bradner, Senior Technical Consultant at Harvard University, IETF Area Director


A SERVICE MANAGEMENT SOLUTION THAT WORKS


Who said service management is easy? Certainly not anyone who ever tried to deploy high-value profitable services. Expertly configuring a router is one thing, controlling a LAN is another, and getting routers, applications, and devices working together to deliver a service and collect service data is something else altogether!


THE PATH TO ENLIGHTENMENT


When it comes to service management, software solutions expert Jonathan Saperia has been there, done that for many of the biggest-name ISPs and enterprises. So if youd like to find a path leading to cost-effective high-value service delivery and management, open these pages. Youll find the help you need to:

* Evaluate service management protocols now in play

* Learn the advantages of using SNMP at the edge

* Avoid the pitfalls routinely encountered with even the best system management software

* Build a system that reflects economic reality

* Work through system design, buying decisions, or development concepts

* Create profitable high-value service offerings with reliable service management support
