Design and development of essential use-cases for self-management in Future Internet wireless networks
The paper discusses and describes several selected use-cases for autonomic/cognitive management purposes in the scope of the Future Internet (FI) evolution, as these have been identified upon the original context of the EU-funded Self-NET Project effort. The essential aim is to "delimit" new paradigms for the management of complex and heterogeneous wireless network infrastructures and systems, by proposing the operation of self-managed FI elements around a novel feedback-control cycle, known as the MDE cognitive cycle. Thus, the paper intends to "identify" an integrated validation environment for the prototyping and the assessment of relevant concepts and artifacts, via the establishment of appropriate use-cases and corresponding scenarios of use and the explicit description/set-up of relevant test-beds and/or implementation platforms, towards network and node management. The three proposed use-cases have been selected as "proper drivers" for the design and the validati on of Self- NET architecture and concepts.
