Abstract

In this paper we present the results of a joint project (named Armonia) between the Dipartimento di Informatica ed Applicazioni of Università di Salerno and Ericsson Lab Italy, the R&D Company of Ericsson in Italy. This project aims to investigate the emerging solutions for developing a remote management framework of telecommunication devices. The focus is kept on the problem of the integration of different (sometimes proprietary) management technologies to provide remote administration capabilities to telecommunication devices. The growing complexities of such devices and the needs for interoperability among heterogeneous networks have been addressed by several international consortia thus resulting in the proposal of various standard solutions. Indeed, whichever solution a TLC company would adopt, it has certainly to provide a uniform stable standardized access to heterogeneous devices and it should support new heterogeneous equipments while preserving any existing management framework. The main attained goal of the project was the on field evaluation of one the mos t promising enabling technology, namely WBEM. To this end, we have evaluated the effectiveness of the WBEM solution with respect to other management approaches. According to our findings, we state that the WBEM approach matches all the required properties. We proved this statement by developing a prototype solution for administering a set of heterogeneous equipments that features both standard and proprietary management paradigms.
