Title: TECHNIQUE OF DETERMINING CONNECTIVITY SOLUTIONS FOR NETWORK ELEMENTS
Abstract:
A technique of finding connectivity solutions for network elements to be switched into a path selected in a network managed by a network management system(NMS), wherein each network element comprises input ports and output ports, each of the ports enabling a plurality of connection points, the technique including providing, at the level of NMS, a connectivity table (CT) comprising data on possible internal connections between connection points of any input port and any output port of any of the network elements managed by the NMS. The technique enables, whenever a particular network element is selected with its input port and its output port to be used in the path, obtaining a connectivity solution for the particular network element at the level of NMS.
