ABSTRACT This paper proposes management architecture of a multi-layer
virtual private network over the broadband network that will play an
important role at the initial stages of the broadband era. To provide
flexible management capabilities with the administrator of the VPN, we
adopt a layering concept and abstraction mechanism to give a simple view
of the real connection at service management level. The multilayer VPN
management architecture we propose includes the concept of customer
network management for a subscriber's control of their own VPN, and the
information/computational model of VPN with emphasis on the layering
concept based on ITU-T G.803 and G.805. In addition, some advanced
multi-layer VPN features and a generic bearer connectivity model are
presented. We also outline our early experiences with the
implementations of the proposed VPN management architecture based on the
common object request broker architecture and Web technologies
