Low Earth Orbiting (LEO) satellite networks with on-board asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) switches hold the promise of offering an economically viable extension of terrestrial ATM systems by providing connectivity to areas where existing terrestrial networks are either infeasible or impractical. Network management in ATM LEO satellite networks is typically performed by the Network Control Center (NCC). The main contribution of this paper is to propose a network management system configuration with a stand-by solution and to describe an experimental Satellite Management Information Base (SMIB) that we have developed for implementation in ATM LEO satellite networks.
