Abstract
As the DoD continues to"drawdown"the number of active duty personnel, there are a limited number of network operators to examine network status data and configure the large number of network devices present in any theater of operation. However, the ever increasing complexity of missions requires optimal network operation to provide mission assurance; this drives the need to maximize automation. To meet this challenge, Architecture Technology Corporation (ATC) will develop Province, the distributed autonomous network management system that creates localized network management sections that are self-monitoring and self-configuring. Province is a software product that efficiently shares network information, analyzes the information, and reconfigures the network to maintain optimal network state for mission success. Province"s architecture integrates into existing network devices to efficiently compress and route network management information to reduce network overhead.
