TMN (Telecommunications Management Network) originated formally in 1988 under the auspices of the International Telecommunication Union ( ITU-TS ) as a strategic goal to create or identify standard interfaces that would allow a network to be managed consistently across all network element suppliers. The concept has fostered and tracked a series of interrelated efforts at developing standard ways to define and address network elements. TMN uses the OSI Management Standards as its framework. TMN applies to wireless communications and cable TV as well as to private and public wired networks.
