The management of policies in large-scale systems is complex because of the potentially large number of policies and administrators, as well as the diverse types of information that need to be managed. Appropriate tool support is essential to make management practical and feasible. In this paper we present the implementation of an integrated toolkit for the… (More)
SUMMARY The paper presents a survey on OpenFlow related technologies that have been proposed as a means for researchers, network service creators, and others to easily design, test, and deploy their innovative ideas in experimental or production networks to accelerate research activities on network technologies. Rather than having programmability within… (More)
Low-cost implementations of graphical user interfaces (GUIs) have relied on the widget library framework. Although conventional widgets are suitable for developing typical GUIs with predetermined interaction styles, application-specic cus-tomization of interactions is rather dicult, especially for a non-programmer. Instead, we propose a new framework… (More)
A key challenge of ubiquitous computing environments, which feature massively distributed systems containing a large number of contexts and services, is how to manage the relations between context and service. Some researchers use rules to describe these relations, while other researchers propose stochastic methods to model them. However, both approaches… (More)
It is a tough job for operators to make perfectly accurate configuration of many network elements in large networks. Erroneous configurations may cause critical incidents in network, on which many ICT systems are running. It may also result in a security hole as well as system incidents. There has been much work on preventing erroneous configurations, but… (More)
This paper presents a report on APNOMS 2013, which was held September 25–27, 2013 in the International Conference Center, Hiroshima, Japan. The theme of APNOMS 2013 was “Integrated Management of Network Virtualization”.
