New report available! UMF Specifications, release 1 (Deliverable D2.1)

News date: 
Wed, 2011-07-20

The UniverSelf project is proud to announce the release of the first release of the Unified Management Framework Specifications:

Deliverable D2.1 - UMF Specifications - release 1.

The report can be accessed under the Dissemination/Technical Reports section, or directly at the following link http://www.univerself-project.eu/technical-reports



UniverSelf core motivation is to arise as a driving force, with the duty of leading the autonomic networking research field into maturity by generating high industrial impact, keeping a business focused approach and federating the various valuable research results that have already been obtained. The design of a Unified Management Framework (UMF) that targets the embedding of autonomic paradigms in any type of network in a consistent manner is part of this great challenge.

The Deliverable 2.1 presents the first release of the UMF specifications. It provides an initial description of the UMF, its perimeter and its enablers. First, the “cleaned state” approach adopted by UniverSelf is motivated, follows a deep analysis of existing management and autonomic networks architectures. The positioning of UMF with respect to existing networks management systems is also detailed. Then, the analysis of the top down requirements related to UMF as well as the requirements defined in D4.1 based on specific use cases is presented. The current deliverable identifies and specifies the UMF core functional blocks and interfaces. Moreover, it addresses the technological challenges of knowledge and information management, network governance and intelligence embodiment. Candidate solutions are studied and a working approach is defined.  The outcomes of these approaches will be described in the next release of UMF specification that is Deliverable 2.2.
