Executive Summary

Policy Based Network Management (PBNM) simplifies the administration and management of communication networks. However, due to the wide variety of policy representation forms, interoperability between different entities of PBNM systems becomes a concern. The Common Open Policy Service (COPS), which was standardized for policy control between a Policy Decision Function (PDF) and Policy Enforcement Point (PEP) had considerable shortfalls in efficiency and flexibility - its successor the Diameter protocol exhibits interoperability shortfalls. An XML-based policy provisioning solution presents great modeling capabilities that may overcome these shortfalls.
