    Active networks (AN) have been investigated over several years, attempting to satisfy the increasing needs for highly customizable protocol mechanisms in an era where the Internet is threatened to become immutable due to its huge installed base. AN seem to be particularly useful in the context of QoS support. This paper investigates AN for on-demand QoS routing and proposes an approach called AQR.... View full abstract»

  • A management architecture for active networks

    We present an architecture for network and applications management, which is based on the active networks paradigm and shows the advantages of network programmability. The stimulus to develop this architecture arises from an actual need to manage a cluster of active nodes, where it is often required to redeploy network assets and modify node connectivity. In our architecture, a remote front-end of... View full abstract»

    Associating customized processing to incoming packets, active networking provides a general framework for new protocol deployment and new service implementations. Recently, the use of these active network concepts has been proposed in many research areas including multicast protocols where efficient mechanisms for the reliability problems can be proposed. However these active services introduce ad... View full abstract»

  • A framework for application-specific customization of network services

    We propose a network service framework where common network functions such as routing and multicast can be customized on a per-application basis. Network service customization is achieved through service plug-in modules that can be dynamically loaded by applications. In addition to their customization, services can also be composed to form complex aggregate services. Finally, our framework is depl... View full abstract»

  • Gathercast with active networks

    Small packets constitute a large fraction of packets in the Internet. Gathercast is a network layer service that combines small packets going to the same destination into a single packet, reducing the number of packets in the network and saving computations at intermediate routers. We propose a new model for gathercast using active network techniques. With this model, gathercast is built throughou... View full abstract»

  • Tamanoir-IBP: adding storage to active networks

    Active networks are a promising way to develop new services for data transport, but active routers could also store "on the fly" streams of data for high level services such as Web cache and reliable multicast. In this paper we describe the merging of active networking with distributed storage solutions. We focus our approach on two dedicated frameworks : the IBP suite and the Tamanoir execution e...

  • Managing QoS for multimedia applications in a differentiated services environment

    The overall quality of network connections has a significant impact on the performance of networked applications. Consequently, QoS management for networked multimedia applications over IP is a significant and immediate challenge. While differentiated services (diffserv) provide a sense of resource allocation and QoS, they do not guarantee QoS. This paper presents design, implementation and evalua... View full abstract»

    The usage of general-purpose processors externally attached to routers to play virtually the role of active coprocessors seems a safe and cost-effective approach to add active network capabilities to existing routers. This paper reviews this router-assistant way of making active nodes, addresses the benefits and limitations of this technique, and describes a new platform based on it using an enhan...

    Current trends suggest future software systems will comprise collections of components that combine and recombine dynamically in reaction to changing conditions. Service-discovery protocols, which enable software components to locate available software services and to adapt to changing system topology, provide one foundation for such dynamic behavior. Emerging discovery protocols specify alternati... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (640 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The Janus project aims to develop methodologies and protocols to support multiway communications in hybrid wireless and land-line networks. Significant differences in performance and qualitative attributes between wired and wireless networks necessitate adaptation and arbitration mechanisms in order to deliver group transport services. Janus provides a proxy mechanism to reconcile differences betw... View full abstract»

    The advent of a widely interconnected computing infrastructure has raised the question of the kind of advanced communications that can be implemented "in the network". The active networks concept explores advanced capabilities such as content-based routing and multi-mode multicast. A larger issues exists, however, as to how widely distributed applications can access and manage any such advanced co... View full abstract»

    In this paper we present the design, architecture and implementation of the A2QM3 System. It provides programmers with re-usable QoS-aware control objects to enable building a complete middleware for adaptive applications over active networks. We introduce the programming model and system architecture, and show the parts that make this system full-featured middleware supporting QoS-aware reliable ... View full abstract»
