The PEMMON project addressed the area of heterogeneous network management. The emergence of technology that allows the creation of highly complex data communication networks and the aspirations of customers to gain control of their equipment has led to a strong demand for integrated network management systems (INMS).
The project dealt with a major component of future INMSs: performance management, which is the area of network management supporting strategic decisions and defining the tactical decisions required to maintain a high service level. Furthermore, these performance management functions have to account for heterogeneous contexts.
The main objectives of the project have to:
The project included four technical workpackages:
The prototype of this NPM application gave rise to several contributions to standards-setting bodies, and these specifications provide directions and guidelines to develop, implement and demonstrate the prototype of a standardised NPM tool.
The integration of the management of network performance with other forms of network management into a fully-fledged INMS control centre can only be foreseen when products conformant to ISO 9595 become available (due in 1994/1995).
CSEE and SELENIA plan to industrialise and incorporate into their future INMS product lines the ultimate goal of this project, a full prototype of an NPM product.
