Abstract

The existing management systems for networks and communication services do not fully meet the demands of users in next-generation infocommunication services that are dictated by the business processes of companies. Open digital architecture (ODA) is able to dramatically simplify and automate main business processes using the logic of distributed computing and management, which allows implementing services on a set of network nodes. The performance of a distributed operational management system depends on the quality of solving several tasks as follows: the distribution of program components among processor modules; the prioritization of business processes with parallel execution; the elimination of dead states and interlocks during execution; and the reduction of system cost to integrate separate components of business processes. The program components can be distributed among processor modules by an iterative algorithm that calculates the frequency of resource conflicts; this algorithm yields a rational distribution in a finite number of iterations. The interlocks of parallel business processes can be eliminated using the classic file sharing example with two processes and also the methodology of colored Petri nets. The system cost of integration processes in a distributed management system is reduced through partitioning the network into segments with several controllers that interact with each other and manage the network in a coordinated way. This paper develops a model of a distributed operational management system for next-generation infocommunication networks that assesses the efficiency of operational activities for a communication company.
