Course description: Network management can be defined via the traditional FCAPS (Fault, Configuration, Accounting, Performance, and Security) or the newer OAM&P (Operations, Administration, Maintenance & Provisioning) models. The former is often in use in enterprise networks and the latter in operator networks.
Although management mechanisms are an important part of any network, often too little time and money is given to the proper design, implementation and operation of the management systems. Sometimes this is a conscious choice and sometimes the main reason is the lack of knowledge in terms of available mechanisms and design practices.
The purpose of this course is to go through all the relevant aspects of a proper management network and available management mechanisms. The course does not go through different software products, but concentrates on the design of the whole management network and related services.
