Abstract

The continuously increasing complexity of the communication networks and growing data traffic volume have proven to pose measurable challenges for the network and service management. The Univerself project is facing these challenges by designing a Unified Management Framework (UMF) for enabling widespread and consistent autonomic management of networks and services, while at the same time maintaining operator's supervision. This paper introduces our work on wireless access load balancing, being part of the UMF work. First of all, we summarize our approach (Distributed Decision Engine -DDE) for information monitoring, further processing and delivery in the context of autonomic network and service management. We describe our proof-of-concept prototype on multiaccess capable access selection and load balancing, and show the employment of DDE and autonomic decision mechanisms therein. The prototype is evaluated by conducting a set of measurements and outperformance will be proven against a reference system without network or service awareness.
