This course covers the architecture of future-oriented network management systems and underlying technologies based on standardised management architectures (OSI-Management, TMF). The concepts of multi-technology and multi-vendor management of resources and services of networked communication systems are presented. A state-of-the art network management system must not be limited to configuration and fault management of network elements, but has also to provide complete end-to-end network supervision and administration of contracted services and customers. Its flexibility must allow it to adopt to the demands and operational processes of network providers.
