1 Saad Haj Bakry, PhD, CEng, FIEE 1 TMN: Telecommunications Management Networks Saad Haj Bakry, PhD, CEng, FIEE P RESENTATIONS IN N ETWORK M ANAGEMENT

2 Saad Haj Bakry, PhD, CEng, FIEE 2 Objectives / Contents Introducing TMN TMN Nodes TMN Interfaces Support TMN: Telecommunications Management Networks

3 Saad Haj Bakry, PhD, CEng, FIEE 3 TMN: Emergence Birth: 1988 by the CCITT (ITU-T) First Implementation of TMN Interfaces: 1992 (ITU-T) Current State: Continued Support (Standards / Products) TMN: Telecommunications Management Networks

4 Saad Haj Bakry, PhD, CEng, FIEE 4 TMN: Basic Concept Managed SystemTelecommunications Networks Managing System TMN: Management is performed by a cooperating set of systems (Network of Systems). Purpose Accommodating Diverse Technologies (Multi-Vendors) HowUsing “Standard Interfaces” TMN: Telecommunications Management Networks

5 Saad Haj Bakry, PhD, CEng, FIEE 5 TMN: Operation Principle Objective Concerned with: Operation, Administration, Maintenance, and Provisioning (OAM&P). Interaction Managed Systems: (Using) Network Elements (NEs) Managing Systems: Operation Systems (OSs) Interaction: Standard Interfaces TMN: Telecommunications Management Networks

6 Saad Haj Bakry, PhD, CEng, FIEE 6 TMN: Structure OS: Operation System Q3 DCN: Data Comm. Network Q3 MD: Mediation Device Q2Q1 Simple NEs Intelligent NEs WS F X Another TMN TMN: Telecommunications Management Networks

7 Saad Haj Bakry, PhD, CEng, FIEE 7 Nodes: Operation System (OS) Definition: The TMN “Supervisory” & “Control” System Functionality Layers: –Business / (Application) Management –Service Management –Network Management –Element Management TMN: Telecommunications Management Networks

8 Saad Haj Bakry, PhD, CEng, FIEE 8 Nodes: Work Station (WS) Definition: TMN “Human Site” Function: Provides “Presentation Functions” to the Manager. TMN: Telecommunications Management Networks

9 Saad Haj Bakry, PhD, CEng, FIEE 9 Nodes: Mediation Device (MD) & Q-Adaptor (QA) Definition: MD / QA are “adaptors” (QA Connects TMN Systems to Non-TMN systems) Operations: Storage, Adaptation, Filtering, Thresh-holding, Condensing, … Data from Subtending Equipment. TMN: Telecommunications Management Networks

10 Saad Haj Bakry, PhD, CEng, FIEE 10 Nodes: Network Element (NE) Location: NE resides in the “Managed Telecom Network” to “Handle Traffic (Not Management)” Operation: “Origin” & “ Destination” of management “Supervision” & “Control”. TMN: Telecommunications Management Networks

11 Saad Haj Bakry, PhD, CEng, FIEE 11 Data Communication Network: DCN Definition: TMN Communication Network Between Nodes (The Transportation Mean of the TMN World) DCN versus The Managed Network: Initially assumed to be “Independent” This restriction has been “Relaxed” to reduce “Cost” TMN: Telecommunications Management Networks

12 Saad Haj Bakry, PhD, CEng, FIEE 12 Interfaces Function: Interfaces govern the manner in which management systems interact. Standards: Standards for interfaces are emphasized to allow nodes (of different vendors) to interact. TMN: Telecommunications Management Networks

13 Saad Haj Bakry, PhD, CEng, FIEE 13 Interface: Q1 Q1 Interfacing: MD - [Q1] – NE A number of small scale NEs supported an MD (Multiplexing & Transmission Equipment) Scope: Layers 1 & 2 of ISO-OSI 7 Layers Activities: –Transporting Alarm States (Binary Indications) –Loop-Back Requests TMN: Telecommunications Management Networks

14 Saad Haj Bakry, PhD, CEng, FIEE 14 Interface: Q2 Q2 Interfacing: MD - [Q2] – NE (more sophisticated) More intelligent large scale NEs (More Sophisticated Multiplexing & Transmission) Scope: Layers 1, 2 and 3 of ISO-OSI 7 Layers Activities: –More sophisticated than Q1 –Alarm Surveillance –Data Transfer (not only binary indications) TMN: Telecommunications Management Networks

15 Saad Haj Bakry, PhD, CEng, FIEE 15 Interface: Q3 Q3 Interfacing: OS - [Q3] – NE / OS - [Q3] – QA OS – [Q3] – MD / OS – [Q3] – OS Intelligent Nes for Intelligent Equipment (Switches) Scope: Layers 1 to 7 of ISO-OSI 7 Layers Activities: –More sophisticated than Q2 –Full Capability Interface. TMN: Telecommunications Management Networks

16 Saad Haj Bakry, PhD, CEng, FIEE 16 Interfaces: X / F X Interfacing: OS (TMN:1) [X] OS (TMN:2) F Interfacing: WS [F] Other Nodes TMN: Telecommunications Management Networks

17 Saad Haj Bakry, PhD, CEng, FIEE 17 Functions: OS Level Surveillance / Control Service objectives / Reference Compare performance data to maintenance limits Invoke maintenance. –Preventive & –Corrective TMN: Telecommunications Management Networks

18 Saad Haj Bakry, PhD, CEng, FIEE 18 Functions: DCN Level Communications Transport performance “information & commands” via “protocols, languages & messages” TMN: Telecommunications Management Networks

19 Saad Haj Bakry, PhD, CEng, FIEE 19 Functions: MD Level Mediation Provides “data pre-processing & concentration” plus “protocol conversion” TMN: Telecommunications Management Networks

20 Saad Haj Bakry, PhD, CEng, FIEE 20 Functions: NE Level Monitoring & Testing Generates “alarms” & “performance information” for “reporting to OS” TMN: Telecommunications Management Networks

21 Saad Haj Bakry, PhD, CEng, FIEE 21 Remarks TMN – Internationally recommended concept –Well supported by standards Important Relationships –ISO & Internet (SNMP) Future: –NM products supporting TMN TMN: Telecommunications Management Networks
