Recent endeavors in addressing the challenges of the current and future Internet pursue a clean slate design methodology. Simultaneously, it is argued that the Internet is unlikely to be changed in one fell swoop and that its next generation requires an evolutionary design approach. Recognizing both positions, we claim that cleanness and evolution are not(More)
Future communication networks will be composed of a diversity of highly heterogeneous network variants, ranging from energy constrained wireless sensor networks to large-scale wide area networks. The fact that the size and complexity of such networks will experience tremendous growth will eventually render existing traditional network management paradigms(More)
This work proposes a probabilistic management paradigm for solving some major challenges of decentralized network management. Specifically, we show how to cope with 1) the overhead of redundant information gathering and processing, 2) the decentralized management in dynamic and unpredictable environments, and 3) the considerable effort required for(More)
Event handling is a management mechanism that provides means for the network to react on changes in the network conditions or performance. In the construction of a clean-slate management architecture, we consider this as a main building block. This paper proposes a fully distributed event distribution in a fully distributed environment: differently from(More)
4G systems will need to integrate several IP-based access technologies in a seamless way. In this paper, we first describe the requirements of a Mobility Management scheme for multimedia real-time communication services; then, we report a survey of the Mobility Management schemes proposed in the recent literature to perform vertical handovers between(More)
