The current complexity of network management has helped drive the need for autonomic capabilities. The vision of autonomic network management provides the ability for network devices to cooperatively self-organise and self-govern in the support of high level business goals. These principles are inspired by biological systems. In this paper, we propose key self-organisation and self-governance techniques that are drawn from principles of molecular biology including (i) blood glucose homeostasis, (ii) reaction diffusion like principles, (iii) microorganism mobility using chemotaxis techniques, and (iv) hormone signaling. Preliminary simulation results have also been presented to validate our model.
