geant A Network Management Architecture proposal for the GEANT-NREN environment

The aim of designing a Network Management Architecture (NMA) is to facilitate the effective interoperation between various types of service-supporting software tools over the underlying shared network resources of the GEANT - NREN multi-domain environment. Because GN3 environment differs from the typical provider in several properties, existing network management standards typically written from the perspective of providers are not fully applicable for GN3 services. The proposed NMA will specify the exchange of management information using an agreed architecture with standardized interfaces including protocols and messages.
