Section: Application Domains

Mobile, ad-hoc and constrained networks

The results coming out from MADYNES can be applied to any dynamic infrastructure that contributes to the delivery of value added services. While this is a potentially huge application domain, we focus on the following environments at the network level:

  1. multicast services,

  2. ad-hoc networks,

  3. mobile devices and IPv6 networks,

  4. voice over IP infrastructure.

All these selected application areas exhibit different dynamicity features. In the context of multicast services, we focus on distribution, monitoring and accounting of key distribution protocols. On ad-hoc and dynamic networks we are investigating the provisioning, monitoring, configuration and performance management issues.

Concerning mobile devices, we are interested in their configuration, provisioning and monitoring. IPv6 work goes on in Information Models and, combined with SNMPv3, on self-configuration of the agents.
