In this paper the application of neural networks to some of the network management tasks carried out in a regional Bell telephone company is described. Network managers monitor the telephone network for abnormal conditions and have the ability to place controls in the network to improve traffic flow. Conclusions are drawn regarding the utility and effectiveness of the neural networks in automating the network management tasks.
