APPLYING INTEGRATED EXPERT SYSTEM IN NETWORK MANAGEMENT

Abstract

The management of modern telecommunications networks is becoming an increasingly demanding task that is difficult to implement using present traditional methods even assisted by conventional automation techniques. Integration of advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology into existing and future network management system may resolve some of the difficulties. The goal of this research is to develop an integrated expert system for management network applications. The emphasis of this research is to provide a broad view of intelligent systems by capturing the knowledge of human experts and using a modular approach that integrates the knowledge management and network resources specifications. For this purpose, an extension of OSI management framework specifications language has been added and investigated. The advantage of integrating both is that a large problem can be broken down into smaller and manageable sub-problems/modules. Through modification of existing resources or addition of new resources, the integrated expert system can be conveniently expanded in the future to cover the latest research findings and updated standards of network communications.
