Paper Abstract

This paper describes the use of OSI/CCITT X.700 series system management standards to provide a unified system management architecture for the Iris tactical communications system being procured by the Canadian Army. Due to the complexity and dynamic nature of the Iris radio system, the realization of Iris system management required an innovative tailoring of EUROCOM D/Os concept and a creative application of OSI system management standards. It was soon found that EUROCOM D/O could benefit readily from the application of OSI system management standards. System management is concerned with the monitoring and control of resources. This paper seeks to answer the following questions concerning Iris system management: (1) How should the management view of the resources be described? (2) What should be the management operations on the resources? (3) Given that there are standards which address the above questions, how can the standards be applied to a military environment? The following sections include a brief overview of EUROCOM D/O and OSI system management standards, and a description of the standards tailored to the realization of Iris system management.
