Alarm handling and especially alarm correlation tools are necessary to manage large telecommunication networks. In this paper we describe our neural network based alarm correlation system, which uses a Cascade Correlation neural network to correlate alarms in a GSM network. The results of our approach called Cascade Correlation Alarm Correlator (CCAC) are… (More)
Though cellular phone networks already contain intelligent network elements diagnosing local faults, alarm bursts caused by network element failures cannot be handled properly by this technology. It is the responsibility of the operators to extract the relevant alarms from such a burst and identify the cause. To assist the operators, several alarm… (More)
The NATO Response Force operational concept is based on the rapid deployment of expeditionary forces at a number of locations with mission tailored capabilities. Commercially available products fail on key NATO requirements for various reasons, e.g. form factor, types of supported interfaces, and resilience, to name a few. Therefore a… (More)
Platform. Issues arisen during the integration process are addressed as well as those discovered and solved to address interoperability aspects.
