Assuming that different wireless technologies will be cooperating components of the future heterogeneous context, there is a need for designing new management platform in order to handle efficiently the use of the various access systems. This paper provides a high level description of such a management platform, validated by a prototype. This prototype includes two types of the simulation tools that were developed first for palliating the lack of real networks and secondly for being used within
more » ... the optimisation process. The first simulator is dedicated to the simulation of the IP core network and is based on the wellknown Network Simulator (NS) that have been modified. The second simulator represents the various radio access systems (UMTS, DVB, Hiperlan) and was developed over a radio planning software. Means to interconnect these two simulators between them as well as with the B3G management platform were provided.
