ConferenceIEEE/IFIP International Symposium on Integrated Network Management (IM 2001)


Future multiservice networks will be extremely large and complex. In this environment, active services will be needed to enable the rapid service evolution demanded by users. Active services also enable service management to be delegated to network users as a large set of independent small-scale management systems, thus minimising management costs. However, novel management solutions will be required to enable efficient multi-user management of the sites where the active services are run. We present an architecture for management of a network offering active services, which uses a combination of policies and adaptive algorithms to enable multi-user management of network based service components

Bibliographic note

IEEE Integrated Network Management is the principal conference outlet for management systems research. The architecture and the event based publish and subscribe approach are both being used for the management by policy system in Prosen that is currently being built by colleagues from Stirling alongside the Lancaster group. This was the first paper that described and demonstrated how to integrate the autonomic management ideas we have been applying, with a more conventional management approach.
