The purpose of autonomic networking is to manage the business and technical complexity of networked components and systems. However, the lack of a common lingua franca makes it impossible to use vendor-specific network management data to ascertain the state of the network at any given time. Furthermore, the tools used to analyze management data, which(More)
Next generation networks, as well as the Future Internet, aim to provide context-sensitive business services that adapt to changing user needs, business goals, and environmental conditions. This paper describes the composition of an Autonomic Element, as a fundamental part of an autonomic architecture, which uses information models and semantics to link the(More)
In the last few years, a variety of concepts for service integration and corresponding systems have been developed. On the one hand, they aim for the interworking and integration of classical telecommunications and data communications services. On the other, they are focusing on universal service access from a variety of end-user systems. Many of the(More)
This paper details an application of model-driven development undertaken within the Celtic initiative project Madeira. The objective of Madeira is to apply model-driven approaches to investigate large-scale distribution techniques in network management. So far, the project has concentrated on building a prototype system using the peer-to-peer (P2P)(More)
Environment-aware Applications and Mobile Communications have proven significant relevance for future telecommunications and computing. This poster describes an approach to integrate heterogeneous off-the-shelf technology to fulfill the demands of environment-aware applications. The integration has been done employing a CORBA based middleware. That gave us(More)
This paper describes a new version of the DEN-ng context model, and how this model in conjunction with the DEN-ng policy model can be used for more effective and flexible context management. Both are part of the FOCALE autonomic network architecture. Context selects policies, which select roles that can be used, which in turn define allowed functionality(More)
In the Future Internet, free exchange of information between enterprise applications and networking systems promotes the personalization of services and enables many different types of end-user applications and management operations optimizing the network performance. As result of this free information exchange, we need to facilitate the federation of(More)
Network management has suffered from increases in business, system, and operational complexity. This has been exacerbated by the heterogeneity in management data as well as the high quality requirements of multimedia services. Autonomic networking manages this growing complexity by adding intelligence inside network nodes and network management(More)
