Summary: We aim to develop an open, policy-based architecture for the management of next generation telecommunications networks. It is expected that a comprehensive Open Architecture-based Telecommunications Management Network (AuTuMN) framework could be put in place to manage the network based on centralised policies and roles rather than having to handle individual users and elements. Significantly, the scientific knowledge of open systems and network management systems for next generation networks will be extended.
