3GPP Telecom Management is a set of standards and protocols for managing telecommunications networks that are developed by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP), a collaboration between telecommunications standards organizations.
The 3GPP Telecom Management standards define a framework for managing various aspects of a telecommunications network, including network elements such as switches, routers, and base stations, as well as services and applications that run on the network. This framework is based on the International Organization for Standardization’s (ISO) Telecommunications Management Network (TMN) model.
The 3GPP Telecom Management standards cover a range of management functions, including fault management, configuration management, performance management, security management, and accounting management. These functions enable network operators to monitor the network’s performance, identify and resolve faults, configure and control network elements, and ensure the security and integrity of the network.
The 3GPP Telecom Management standards also define a set of interfaces and protocols for communication between management systems and network elements, including the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and the Common Management Information Protocol (CMIP). These interfaces and protocols allow management systems to exchange information with network elements and to issue commands and requests for data.
Overall, the 3GPP Telecom Management standards provide a comprehensive framework for managing telecommunications networks, ensuring that they operate reliably, securely, and efficiently, and that they can be adapted and expanded to meet changing requirements and technological advances.
