Abstract
This report compares and evaluates two experimental policy-based network management (PBNM) systems to determine the extensibility of each system with respect to the creation of a full-feature generic Policy-based Network Management System. One system is the Coalition Network Management System developed by Australia. The other is a Policy-based Network Management System developed by the University of Murcia (UMU) in Spain. The report finds that each system would require extensive development, or re-development to be properly deployed in a tactical environment. However the extensibility of the UMU-PBMNS is found to be more advantageous, easier to deploy and maintain, and to remain easily upgradeable as the scope of requirements changes.
