The RACE (research and development in advanced communications in Europe) program embraces all the issues surrounding the development and deployment of integrated broadband communications in Europe. In the RACE program, the domain of network management encompasses the concept of using a separate network to manage the telecommunications network itself. This separate network is called a telecommunications-management network (TMN). Guideline, a project created to coordinate all the TMN work done in RACE, develop a common approach to TMN architecture, and recommend which AIP techniques would be appropriate, is described. Guideline provides an interface to RACE projects outside the TMN area and to international standards organizations and other trade groups. It also provides an interface to the TMN specifications projects, Netman and Terrace.
