Automated Network Management Systems is ideal for advanced undergraduate or graduate-level courses in Networking or for professionals managing networks.

Network management is an interesting, but intellectually challenging, problem therefore, there is a big opportunity for research leading to automated systems that manage networks. In this innovative new text, Comer examines possibilities for the future, including ways to build software that automates management tasks. A basic understanding of networking (equivalent to one undergraduate course or experience in the field) is assumed.
