The main goal of wireless telecommunication world can be briefly summarized as: “communication anywhere, anytime, any-media and principally at high-data rates.” On the other hand, this goal is in conflict with the co-existence of plenty different current and emerging wireless systems covering almost the whole world, since each one follows its own architecture and is based on its particular bedrocks. This results in a heterogeneous depiction of the hyper-set of wireless communications systems. The scope of this paper is to present a highly innovative and scalable architectural framework, which will allow different wireless systems to be interconnected in a common way, able to achieve resource management optimization, augmentation of network performance and maximum utilization of the networks. It will describe a hierarchical management system covering all GSM, GPRS, UMTS and WLAN networks each one individually, as well as a unified and wide wireless telecommunication system including all later, in order to provide enhanced capacity and quality via the accomplished network interworking. The main idea is to monitor all the resources using distributed monitoring components with intention to feed an additional centralized system with alarms, so that a set of management techniques will be selected and applied where needed. In parallel, the centralized system will be able to combine the aforementioned alarms with business models for the efficient use of the available networks according to the type of user, the type of application as well as the user’s location.
