Home and building automation applications impose the need for convergence, or at least interoperability, of data networks with intelligent building networks. This situation entails the use of a unified management system. In this paper we extend the traditional SNMP-based network management system paradigm by creating an integrated site network management system that contains data elements, telecommunication equipment and intelligent building devices. A possible architecture based on a proxy gateway is presented and analyzed. We suggest an implementation and potential applications.
