Publication Date



This article discusses the experiences learned in the implementation and deployment of electronic bonding. Electronic bonding refers to the use of TMN-based protocols for the exchange of information between service providers. This is one of the first major deployments of TMN in the U.S. telecommunications network. As was learned during this process, the development of standards is only a starting point. Many additional agreements and decisions must be made in order to achieve deployment of TMN-based interfaces.
