This paper describes a hierarchical scheduling, planning, control, and execution monitoring architecture for automating operations of a worldwide network of communications antennas. We first describe the network automation problem and current mode of operations. We then describe a three layer hierarchical architecture for automating network operations. In particular we explain the notion of plan/schedule generation, execution, and revision at each level. Finally, we describe the current state of deployment for each segment of the automation architecture.
