Source: IPA Journals
Modern day telecommunication industry is facing ever increasing demand for more sophisticated services, higher quality and shorter times to market. Network operators and service providers in the telecommunications industry must meet these demands at a commercially viable cost and should have plans in place for any unforeseen change. Current management models based on client/server suffer from scalability and flexibility problems. Furthermore, the staleness of gathered data (due to network latency involved) and probable error in the selection of management task being carried over (owing to the staleness of data) reduces the reliability of the management applications. A distributed paradigm is a viable solution to perform management functions when network start growing significantly.
