Modern NGN/IMS and post-NGN networks are extremely complex and very hard to manage. It is both difficult to manage the networks according to new requirements, and to do it on control and data planes in real time. We present in this paper a new complete approach for these networks management models and methods. Traditional telecommunications networks management methods are oriented on fixed network architecture, stable traffic structure, bounded list of telecommunication services. New NGN/IMS and post-NGN networks requirements need to extend that models and methods with ideas and results from cognitive multi-agent models.

Networks are used in greater degree of provision of mobile subscribers, communication in social networks, the exchange of text messages, positioning, listening to music, viewing video clips, network games and many other entertainment applications in real time, multimedia conference communication, transfer of banking information and telemetry, Internet, the interaction of computers M2M, management in on-line mode, i.e. than for traditional telecommunications services. New services require fundamentally new and rapidly changing approaches to decision-making in the management of telecommunications Operator, a regular re-evaluation provided for the adoption of information from the OSS/BSS (Operation/Business Support systems- support systems of operations/business).
