Among the leading challenges faced by systems managers today is the coherent management of network resources in a multi-domain, multi-environment. The MISA Project - Management of Integrated SDH and ATM Networks - brought together researchers from 17 organizations to explore and advance the state of the art in developing enabling mechanisms for end-to-end management solutions across multi-domain and multi-technology networks. These mechanisms enable interoperability between management domains, between heterogeneous network technology, and between service and network management functions in a multi-provider environment.

Multi-Domain Communication Management Systems reports on the experiences of the MISA Project researchers. It provides guidance for the deployment of multi-domain management systems and offers a solid basis for the implementation of solutions to the challenges of converging data network technologies. System managers will learn the techniques and mechanisms for end-to-end management problems; network management vendors will understand the benefits and limitations of current practices and standards as they apply to multi-domain management issues; and students and researchers of advanced communications management will discover important concepts and issues related to the management of networks.
