Current network management needs an end-to-end overview of various connections rather than the information that is purely local to the individual devices. The typical manager-centric polling approach, however, is not adequate to understand network-wide behavior of a large-scale broadband network. In this paper, we propose a new management information base (MIB) approach, called operation, administration, and maintenance (OAM) MIB. The MIB provides a network manager with dynamic end-to-end management information by utilizing special standard ATM cells. The MIB makes end-to-end management feasible while it reduces management-related traffic and manager-to-manager interactions. In our model, customer network management system access the MIB through M1/M2 reference points of the ATM Forum management architecture with simple network management protocol (SNMP).
