Network Management Policies: What Aims and How to Pursue Them

  • Milena Buttò

The planning of the Italian Network Supervision Center (CSN) that the Operating Company is currently developing, has given rise to considerations about purposes and technical studies of traffic management strategies.

This paper focuses attention on Grade Of Service (GOS) requirements and expansive controls. It proposes some aims and strategies and takes into account that each network has specific constraints, due to the system features, to the load variations and to the policies pursued by the Operating Company.

These concepts will be useful to develop Network Management (NM) strategies in the Italian digital long distance network. The efficiency of proposed indicators, diagnosis criteria and controls has been tested by a simulation model.
