Summary

Under the caption of Distributed Object Technologies, this chapter examines object oriented distributed processing technologies. As the most popular representatives of this genre, DCOM and CORBA are outlined and their differences are compared. Also, it describes the role of these technologies in telecommunication architectures like TMN (prompting for real time requirements) and TINA, and in functions like management and control.
