    Abstract

    Existing management protocols include SNMP, TL-1, Syslog, CORBA, and XML-based protocols including IETF Netconf. While many protocols were initially intended to address specific functions, most have been extended into other areas in recent years. As a result, we often have competing protocols to address the same need, resulting in a confusing technology landscape. This panel will address: Do we need a single standard protocol to address the full FCAPS functions? If so, which is the right one? Or is having multiple standard protocols that complement each other preferable? XML is gaining a significant momentum in recent years. Should and can XML be used to replace the existing protocols (SNMP, Syslog, etc.)? Do we need a single information model? If so, which one? Or should standardization of information better be left out of the equation? What direction do standardization efforts need to take to enable further advances in the state of management in a way that has measurable impact on the way networks and services are managed and deployed?
