The network manipulator needs excellent knowledge about the controlled network area to accomplish these tasks efficiently. In this paper a fault management system is described which magnifies the reliability of the system with the help of network reconfiguration. The fault localization, segregation and refurbishing allowance to remedy the operator from these demanding tasks during network defeats.
