    This paper describes an architecture for network management that bridges the domains of operations support systems (OSS) and network monitoring systems (NMS) by means of information grid concepts and web services practices. Central to this architecture are the expanded definition and use of system state and the expanded reliance on semantic reasoning. The recent availability of open and collaborat...

    The current design of network mobility (NEMO) basic protocols doesn't provide the compatibility between networks of different versions. However, we need the scheme supporting seamless mobility between IPv4 and IPv6 networks because the coexistence between the two networks is expected in future Internet. So, in this paper, we propose a new architecture for the network mobility through a tunnel agen... View full abstract»

    Migrating towards a converged network allows some important cost-reductions due to economies of scale and scope. The costs of such a converged network are shared among the different services. A fair allocation of these costs is important when determining the cost per service. This paper introduces a method for allocating the costs of the converged network to the different services in a fair manner... View full abstract»

    Broadband is a technology still penetrating the telecommunication market and is seen as the most significant evolutionary step since the emergence of the Internet. However we argue that in the rush to achieve market share, insufficient attention has been paid to quality issues, the central theme of this paper. Indeed the concept of quality is a multi-facetted one, for which various perspectives ca... View full abstract»

    Open service platform makes the functions of telecommunication network open to external service applications through well-defined API. Under this scheme the service layer is independent from lower layers of network such as control and transport layers. So this architecture is well-suited as BcN service platform, because BcN seeks the convergence of existing diverse networks and one of its converge... View full abstract»

    An interworking translator for IPv6 and IPv4 services can be defined as an intermediate component between a native IPv4 host and a native IPv6 host to enable direct communication between them without requiring any modifications to the hosts. But if the host is a mobile node, triangle routing problem occurs, since Mobile IPv4 allows mobile node to roam transparently in any network. In this situatio... View full abstract»

    Delivering broadband services to fast moving users (e.g. in trains or cars) involves both wired and wireless networks. In this paper, we motivate that a hierarchical Ethernet aggregation network in combination with Ethernet-based access networks is an interesting approach for realizing broadband access to fast moving users. The focus is on the tunnel management in the Ethernet aggregation network ... View full abstract»

    The targets of NGN/BcN management (NGNM) are packet-based transport strata and converged service strata. NGNM standardisation should develop unified open interfaces for NGN stratum management that are rich in multi-transmission technology and multi-service capabilities and enable lean operations for converged NGN/BcN with unified user experience and presence. This challenge can be met through deve... View full abstract»

    In order to provide QoS-guaranteed differentiated service across multiple domain networks, inter-AS (autonomous system) traffic engineering is essential. The managed objects in inter-AS traffic engineering should be standardized in public domain, and be easily accessible by other network operators. In this paper, we propose a design and implementation of WBEM-based inter-AS traffic engineering for... View full abstract»

    The focus of new service development continues to move from network services towards application services. This is driven by many factors, such as converged networks, ambient networks and seamless mobility. These and other efforts enable customers to move from one service provider to another based on the availability of desired application services, as well as metrics concerning their performance ...
