IEEE OFFERS "NETWORK MANAGEMENT" TUTORIAL CD-ROM.
This comprehensive, five-hour tutorial provides practical motivations, strategies, and tactics for network management (NM) and describes network management functional areas and software architecture. It is based on the tutorial given by Manu Malek at the IEEE Operations Center in New Jersey on 14 October, 1998. In this tutorial, Dr. Malek examines centralized, hierarchical, and distributed network management models, reviews network management standards and protocols, and identifies implementation issues and NMS selection criteria.
Author Dr. Manu Malek is a Distinguished Member of Technical Staff at Lucent Technologies, Bell Laboratories, and an Adjunct Professor of Electrical Engineering/Computer Science/Technology Management at Stevens Institute of Technology. He has more than 20 years experience in teaching, practicing, and research in telecommunication networks modeling, optimization, operations, and management. Additionally, he is the author, co-author, or editor of six books, and over fifty published technical papers and/or reports.
In this, his latest venture, Dr. Malek covers the following topics under network management:
B7 Definitions, motivations, structure approach
B7 OSI management functional areas
B7 Models and standards
B7 Criteria for selecting network management systems
B7 Hardware/software platforms
Backup and recovery techniques
Network Management is ideal for both new and experienced network and systems managers and administrators. Viewers need only a basic knowledge of voice and data communications.
