  • QoS restoration using a disjoint path group in ATM networks

    Publication Year: 1999, Page(s):669 - 682
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (696 KB)

    A QoS restoration scheme for VP-based ATM networks is proposed and its related characteristics are evaluated. The proposed scheme is a state-independent restoration scheme using a disjoint path group. A VP assignment and capacity planning problem using a disjoint path group are formulated. When a failure occurs, failed working VP are switched to protection paths with the same QoS level using a sim... View full abstract»

    Distributed multimedia applications are sensitive to the quality of service (QoS) delivered by underlying communication networks. The main question this work addresses is how to adapt multimedia applications to the QoS delivered by the network and vice versa. We introduce QoSockets, an extension to the sockets mechanism to enable QoS reservation and management. QoSockets automatically generates th... View full abstract»

    Network management is a key technology for operating large heterogeneous data transmission networks. To allow deployment of equipment from different vendors, the OSI TMN (Telecommunications Management Network) framework defines the language GDMO (Guidelines for the Definition of Managed Objects). Unfortunately, the behavior of managed objects is defined in an informal manner using natural language... View full abstract»

    Shared networks, such as the Internet, are fast becoming able to support heterogeneous applications and a diverse user community. In this climate, it becomes increasingly likely that some form of pricing mechanism will be necessary in order to manage the quality of service (QoS) requirements of different applications. So far, research in this area has focused on technical mechanisms for implementi... View full abstract»

    Network management applications using distributed software agents require secure techniques for agent distribution and communication. Although there are several popular mobile agent environments written in the Java programming language that contend to offer these functions, these packages are generally heavyweight and do not provide a framework for authenticating agent responsibilities within agen...

  • Formal specification of SNMP MIB's using action semantics: the routing proxy case study

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (592 KB)

    The usual way to describe the semantics of MIB objects is just to give an informal English text explaining each object's behavior. Informal descriptions are vague and incomplete. They are open to misinterpretation and may lead to inconsistent implementations. In this work we propose the use of action semantics as a simple and powerful tool for the formal description of the behavior of MIB objects.... View full abstract»

    Policy-based networking (PBN) is gaining a wide acceptance in IP management, resulting in a more unified control and management approach toward complexity of IP management. QoS interworking in IP management based on PBN is going to provide QoS guaranteed/differentiated IP connection services. QoS interworking issues between enterprise network and public IP network are studied. The exponential grow... View full abstract»

    The mobile agent paradigm can be employed effectively for the decentralized management of complex networks. Nevertheless, legacy management protocols such as SNMP need to be supported for reasons of migration and efficiency. We show how the integration of the two paradigms leads to a flexibly adjustable decentralized management architecture. NetDoctor is a network management application framework ... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we build on the concept of the embedded management application, proposed by Wellens and Auerbach (1996), and present two models of network management application designs that rely on Web technologies. First, the pull model, based on the request/response paradigm, is a generalization of data polling in the SNMP management framework. We explain how to use it for ad hoc management (e.g...

    In this paper a process-oriented approach to derive requirements on IT management tools is presented. The starting point is given by the processes that have to be carried out to run a distributed system. The better a management tool supports these processes the more useful it is from the viewpoint of the provider. Hence, the more accepted the tool is by the operators doing their work in the IT org...
