This paper proposes an implementation of the Telecommunications Information Networking Architecture (TINA) connection management system, based on our involvement of The TINA Trial (TTT). The system is used for managing ATM networks, which consist of network elements with SNMP interfaces. It provides setup, configuration, and release of ATM connection with a GUI-based network design tool that generates network resource data used for deploying TINA software components. This paper reports on a method of implementing TINA components over a Distributed Processing Environment (DPE) and an effective way to manage computational objects with multiple interfaces by using the Trading Service.
