New report available! Unified Management Framework (UMF) Specifications - Release 2 (Deliverable 2.2)

News date: 
Wed, 2012-10-17

The UniverSelf project is proud to announce the final release of the report on Unified Management Framework (UMF) Specifications: 

Deliverable 2.2: Unified Management Framework (UMF) Specifications - Release 2

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 project aims at adding maturity level to the autonomic networking research field by generating high industrial impact, keeping a business focused approach and federating the various valuable research results that have already been obtained. In this context, the design of a Unified Management Framework (UMF), which targets at embedding the autonomic paradigms in any type of network in a consistent manner, shall be developed by an overall functional specification of all its components and the related underlying mechanisms.

The deliverable 2.2 presents the first complete specification of the UMF specifications. The specification focuses on: definitions of the operations and the lifecycle of the Network Empowerment Mechanisms (NEMs) that enable networks with embedded autonomic algorithms/solutions into existing and future managed networked systems and services in a “plug and play” / “unplug and play” manner; specification of the UMF core functional blocks, namely Governance, Coordination and Knowledge; and the identification of mechanisms that enable the realization of UMF functions. This specification highlights the opportunities for contributions and actions in various standardization bodies/groups, which would pave the way for industry adoption. The next release of UMF specification (deliverable 2.4) will consolidate the design artefacts and will also focus on the system architecture, deployment and migration aspects of UMF.
