Abstract
As the Army transitions numerous capabilities into network-accessible services, available bandwidth is emerging as the most prominent bottleneck. There exists a need for a system to manage the various components and devices that make up the network to efficiently and effectively manage the network traffic. QTM research is aimed as providing technology that can benefit the TITAN Network Management (NM) system in dealing with Quality of Service (QoS) in a military TEN setting. The specific portion of the NM is the adaptive middle ware layer that deal with autonomous adaptation of the network communication over a TEN. The key goal of this effort is to develop a network management tool for the United States Army that allows for more dynamic QoS visibility and control on the routers, links, and flows that help automate actions to meet the commander’s intent of tactical communications and interface to the TITAN NM system.
