Electrical Engineering Telecommunications Network Management Technologies and Implementations A follow-up to Telecommunications Network Management into the 21st Century: Techniques, Standards, Technologies, and Applications (IEEE Press 1994), this collection of original chapters written by leading experts in the field brings together a full range of applications topics in telecommunications network management. Telecommunications Network Management illustrates how related technology advancements in the telecommunications and computing industries can help engineers achieve cost-effective, end-to-end management of networks. The reader will understand how information modeling and distributed management help to simplify network representation, introduce computing platforms, and reduce operations costs. This book will help engineers and technical managers who face the challenge of integrating multiple technologies, working with multiple vendors, and identifying different management requirements. Topics covered include:
- Information modeling
- New software paradigms
- Distributed management
- Management of CATV and wireless networks
- Software applications lifecycle
