Paper Abstract

Network management is a difficult task and becomes even more complex when involves the requirements of a high performance network as in the case of the ATM architecture. The work presented in this paper proposes the implementation of recently released ITU-T recommendations and investigates the usage of the TMN concepts for the management of ATM networks. Within this context, efforts were concentrated on the development of configuration and fault functions for the control of virtual channel and virtual path connections. More specifically, the work under development covers the monitoring and control of establishment and release of an end-to-end ATM connection, the allocation of corresponding VP/VC identifiers and the activation of the cell flow applied to the connection. Furthermore a testing mechanism through the usage of OAM cells was also implemented.
