"This is a comprehensive book covering architecture, implementation, and operational use of all the current approaches to management-OSI/TMN, SNMP, CORBA, DMTF, and Web-based. It not only covers most of the modern approaches to management but also includes interoperation between these approaches and the use of stand-alone tools such as protocol analyzers. It will be very useful as a reference book for students, researchers, and industry practitioners."
-Professor Morris Sloman, Department of Computing, Imperial College of Science Technology and Medicine
