Authors: Richard Lewis, Nicholas Karatzas

This book contains the highlights of the RACE II project Integrated Communications Management (ICM), addressing the technologies and methods required for the management of Integrated Broadband Communication Networks - a discipline which is referred to as Telecommunications Management Network (TMN).

The book is intended for telecommunications students, researchers, developers and operators in search of information about practical experience of TMN implementation. It contains some relevant background information and detailed technical descriptions of ICM's results, covering a range of topics related to TMN implementation from definition of case studies, through design and implementation, to validation and experimentation. The book aims to be self-contained, although a basic knowledge of TMN and ATM is an advantage to the reader.
