Future Network Management
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
The aim of this MS. thesis is to examine and propose how a future telecommunications management network can be built in a scalable, cost-efficient manner at the same time as high security is maintained. The project was done for Ki Consulting and Skanova. Skanova’s management networks have been described and the problem areas of the current system have been identified. The problem with the current situation involves complex and complicated communications between existing management networks. This thesis proposes four different solutions for future network management. These solutions are (1) continuing with today’s network management, (2) using only one of Skanova’s networks for network management, (3) building a new IP network for network management, or (4) using an existing IP network for network management. The different management networks are compared with respect to the following parameters: investment costs, operating costs, access security, operating security, flexibility, and scalability. An IP network is suggested for handling all network management in the future.
