Managing network resources and disturbances

A project within the SICS Center for Networked Systems (CNS).

The increasing size, complexity, dynamism, and heterogeneity of networked systems necessitate a new approach to network management. In order to realize expectations of flexibility, low cost, and support for new services, manual intervention needs to be replaced by self-management, for which reliability and efficient resource utilization are critical focus areas.

This project addresses network management issues with three general objectives in mind:

1. Development of more efficient traffic measurements

2. Development of robust anomaly detection and disturbance management techniques

3. Creating methods for fully autonomous resource management

We study anomaly and disturbance management, available capacity measurements, robust routing, SLA management, and location management in cellular networks.
