New case study available! Case study Part 1 - Network and Services Governance

The UniverSelf project is proud to announce the release of the case study- Part 1: 

Use Case #7 - Network and Services Governance

The case study can be accessed under the Dissemination/White papers section, or directly at the following link: http://www.univerself-project.eu/white-papers


An increasing number of heterogeneous devices are being used from different places to access a myriad of very different services and/or applications. This situation requires a new reliable, dynamic, and secured communication infrastructure with highly distributed capabilities. The autonomic network envisions meeting these features. Althoughone of the goals of Autonomic Infrastructure is that of self-management, a framework aiming to manage an autonomic network must include tools to facilitate the control and supervision of the network.  Network governance is meant to provide a mechanism for the operator to adjust the features of the demanded service/infrastructure using a high level language. These high level directives must be translated into low level policy rules that can be enforceable to control the behaviour of the self managed resources. 

This case study describes the use of a network governance framework for the management of IPTV services, deployed either in fixed Fiber-To-The-Home (FTTH) autonomic network or through wireless access. The first part of the case study focuses on a brief description of the case, its methods, concepts and expected innovation.The specific functional, non-functional requirements and the associated problems of this case were presented in the deliverable D4.1 [7]. The prioritization of the problems and functional requirements were presented in deliverable D4.2 [8].
