Management Information Bus as Scalable Communication Architecture for NMS
With the growing number of communication service offerings to customers and increased complexity of managed networks, there is a need to interconnect management systems at different levels. This requires information flow across many applications in a domain independent way. The authors propose Management Information Bus (MIB) as a scalable communication architecture for Network Management System (NMS). This is to integrate NMS with service management processes, peer NMS in a distributed and co-operative network management, legacy and future Operation Systems (OS) for incremental evolution of the network management system.
