The Integration of CORBA-Based Management with OpenView DM

Glenn Holliman, Qinzheng Kong and Michael Neville

The increasing complexity of network infrastructures and network-based services has exceeded the capability of the current management models. There is a need to evolve these models to provide the scalability, reliability and extensibility required to manage network infrastructure and services and implementation of network-based services. This paper considers the integration of a CORBA environment with a TMN environment to manage network infrastructure and services, and the implementation of services. It also presents our experiences gained from a prototype implementation of a distributed network management environment using CORBA integrated into a TMN environment.
