Distributed Network Management Using CORBA/TMN

Graham Chen, Michael Neville and Qinzheng Kong

This paper presents different technical approaches to integrate OSI network management environment with CORBA to offer a distributed network and service management environment. Based on this integration, the telecommunication services can be deployed, provisioned and managed in the same environment.

The paper also reports an experiment platform we built based on the integration strategies. The platform integrates Orbix CORBA with HP OpenView DM to offer Video-on-Demand services and to provide its management functions. We present an evaluation of the functionality and performance of this platform.
