Research Institution
WW Technology Group, with expertise in dependable systems, routing technologies and network management will clarify approaches and methodologies to manage next generation mobile ad hoc networks. Our solution to this problem includes several perspectives: (a) Characterization of use cases. Many services that can be provided by the mobile ad-hoc networks. One challenge in network management applications is the concise representation of the operating status of the services as assets in the communication networks. We anticipate that several views may be required dependent on the specific mission of the user. (b) A catalog of initial faults that can threaten the delivery of services. The characterization of the fault classes provides a framework for the identification of fault/error detection services. (c) Mechanisms to uncover both the root causes of faults (fundamental errors) and correlate the faults to the various services being carried by the transport and processing mechanisms under stress. As appropriate, we will identify those elements of our reliable platform that can be employed to identify and characterize faults. The realization of these capabilities includes distributed processing techniques and network management fusion services. Application advances will be employed on both the network elements and centralized management system.
