A MODEL DRIVEN ARCHITECTURE FOR TELECOMMUNICATIONS SYSTEMS USING DEN-NG

John Strassner

Abstract

Current network management approaches rely on stovepipe architectures that can only share data through complicated mediation services that are costly to design and hard to maintain. This causes business rules to be embedded directly in the OSS, which means that every change on them requires direct modifications to the OSS. This paper describes an innovative approach that uses the DEN-ng models to represent the lifecycle of the solution. Extensions to the Model Driven Architecture initiative are presented which enable code to be generated for this approach. A case study is presented that illustrates the power of this approach.
