Abstract : A characteristic of network management today is its growing diversity in the face of increasing network complexity. For one thing, we are beginning to think of electronic communication networks in terms of information networks', comprising networked transmission systems and networked information systems. Secondly, what used to be thought of as simply network management is now splitting into two main capabilities: network management and service management. The complexity of evolving civil network management standards demands that serious consideration be given to the task of understanding how to integrate the management of Defence networks for improved efficiency, interoperability, and flexibility of service provision.
