Autonomic communications seek to improve the ability of network and services to cope with unpredicted change, including changes in topology, load, task, the physical and logical characteristics of the networks that can be accessed, and so forth. Broad-ranging autonomic solutions require designers to account for a range of end-to-end issues affecting programming models, network and contextual modeling and reasoning, decentralised algorithms, trust acquisition and maintenance---issues whose… Expand
Towards autonomic management of communications networks
TLDR
This article provides an introduction to the FOCALE autonomic network management architecture, which is designed to address challenges facing communications networks using traditional approaches that rely on human monitoring and intervention to ensure they operate within desired bounds. Expand
A Survey of Autonomic Network Architectures and Evaluation Criteria
TLDR
A holistic view of autonomic architecture proposals and the evaluation metrics existing so far is provided and some new criteria important to the autonomic architectures are identified. Expand
The Role of Standardization in Future Autonomic Communication Systems
This paper examines the potential problems of interoperability in the development and widespread future deployment of autonomic communication systems. It draws on experiences from previousExpand
A hierarchical approach to autonomic network management
TLDR
This paper proposes a novel approach to structuring distributed autonomic components in large-scale communication networks in a hierarchy that simplifies the interaction between components, and allows them to manage resources and govern child components in a more scalable manner. Expand
A Study on Architecture of Autonomic Computing-Self Managed Systems
TLDR
The architecture of stable autonomic systems is described, which has the potential to manage itself and adapt to the changes and are to be achieved, are Selfhealing, Self-optimizing, self-protecting and Self-configuring. Expand
An adaptive systems perspective on network calculus, with applications to autonomic control
  • S. Dobson
  • Computer Science
  • Int. J. Auton. Adapt. Commun. Syst.
  • 2008
TLDR
An adaptive systems perspective on a recently-proposed formal analytic model of network performance is presented and it is suggested how this can be used to study the adaptive behaviour of systems, and to ensure that their adaptations maintain desired properties. Expand
Autonomic communication learns from nature
TLDR
This work probes into fundamental rethinking of communication, networking, and distributed computing paradigms, to deal with the complexities and dynamics of modern networks. Expand
Toward Autonomic Networks: Knowledge Management and Self-Stabilization
TLDR
This book chapter illuminating two important issues in autonomic networks that are seldom addressed: knowledge management and self-stabilization shows that exploration in these issues is not only necessary but also critical to the success of autonomic Networks. Expand
Cross-layer Optimisations for Autonomic Networks
TLDR
This paper explores the possibilities of cross-layering approaches in autonomic networks, reviews and compares the different cross-layer approaches to network architecture, observing that most current approaches depend purely on local information and provide only poor and inaccurate information gathering at the network level. Expand
Autonomic Communications in Software-Driven Networks
TLDR
This paper surveys autonomic computing and communications in the context of software-driven networks, i.e., networks based on SDN/NFV concepts and focuses on self-management and optimization, which make use of machine learning techniques. Expand

A Role for Contextualised Knowledge in Autonomic Communications
The conceptual architecture of autonomic communications requires a knowledge layer to offer effective, transparent and high level self-management capabilities. This knowledge plane can utilise theExpand
Autonomic communication services: a new challenge for software agents
TLDR
This paper analyzes the key issue of defining suitable “component” models for autonomic communication services, and discusses the strict relation between such models and agent models. Expand

TLDR
A theoretical protocol for autonomic distribution of services in a P2P environment, involving a simple, locally applied "reasoning" loop running independently on every peer, as well as the results of its simulated implementation. Expand
Semantic-Based Policy Engineering for Autonomic Systems
TLDR
Two complimentary approaches that exploit ontology-based knowledge in support of autonomic communications are presented: service-oriented models for policy engineering and dynamic semantic queries using content-based networks. Expand
Putting Meaning into the Network: Some Semantic Issues for the Design of Autonomic Communications Systems
TLDR
This work proposes a graph-centric, contextual abstract model in which sub-systems can relate to other components at a wide range of semantic levels, and explores the implications such a model would have for network technology, applications and users. Expand
Autonomic Computing for Pervasive ICT — A Whole-System Perspective
TLDR
A number of design principles that can be applied to create systems that are autonomic in their operation are outlined, particularly on generating (and analysing) global system behaviour that arises from the carefully designed interactions of the system components, rather than on the individual behaviour of the components themselves. Expand
The Vision of Autonomic Computing
TLDR
A 2001 IBM manifesto noted the almost impossible difficulty of managing current and planned computing systems, which require integrating several heterogeneous environments into corporate-wide computing systems that extend into the Internet. Expand
Adaptive Middleware for Data Replication
TLDR
An extensive performance analysis shows that the proposed adaptive replication solution can provide high throughput, good scalability, and low response times for changing loads and workloads with little overhead. Expand
