The management of telecommunication networks is one of the critical activities made by network providers and their operators. New visualization tools allow the design, planning and administration and study of the time evolution of network behaviour in a user-friendly, intuitive and simple way. The aim of this project is to contribute to the design of the visualization tools aforementioned. This document includes, first of all, a study of the different existing graphical solutions. It classifies and compares its visualization models in order to present the main advantages and disadvantages of each one of them. Secondly, the document contains a study of the current technologies that could represent an alternative that comprises the positive aspects of each model. Finally, the document proposes a solution that presents the models studied and describes the different problems faced during its development. For the development of this project, the collection of valid data for their future visualization is necessary. For this reason, the solution proposes a data structure necessary for its development, as well as a storage system and a distribution engine. The development of a tool that copes with the creation and introduction of these periodical data was essential in order to offer the final-user an interactive feeling. Therefore, the final aim is the design and development of an application that fulfils the previously studied requisites and allows the management, edition and visualization of data regarding the previously gathered models through free, open-source and modern tools. Finally, this document includes a compendium of the difficulties found during the development of the application as well as the run-through scenarios tested and improvements implemented. The conclusion includes the guidelines for revision, expansion and future improvement of the application.
