The 5th IEEE International Workshop on IP Operations & Management
O&M Challenges in Next Generation Services and Networks


October 26-28, 2005 - Barcelona, Spain

Call for Papers

The IPOM 2005 is the fifth in a series of dedicated events to Operations and Management in IP-based networks. Building on the success of the previous events, IPOM 2005 focuses on complexity of interoperability between networks and service providers, the performance versus costs in operating the IP-based networks, and the OM challenges in next generation networks (NGN) and related seamless service provision. Also issues related to Fixed- Mobile Convergence and the emerging IP Multimedia System (IMS) are of prime interest.
