  • BoD 2010 keynote by Bruno Tuffin - Pricing in Telecommunication Networks: Some Issues and Models

    (20.May. 14:21)
    The Internet has experienced a tremendous success. Starting from an academic (and somewhat free) communication network, it has been expanded to commercial purposes and has led to congestion. The way customers are currently charged is based on a so-called flat-rate price: they pay a fixed subscription fee to an Internet Service Provider (ISP) and have an unlimited access to the network. This simple and attractive method is nonetheless unfair since it does not discriminate users. Introducing new pricing schemes seems a valuable option for allowing congestion control and service differentiation among users or applications. While congestion hardly occur in the backbone network, we still have to investigate ways to control it in access networks, the so-called last mile problem, with a special emphasis on wireless. The challenge is therefore to design a pricing scheme representing a good trade-off between economic efficiency and engineering simplicity and that both users and providers would accept. During this talk, we will review few models for pricing bandwidth usage. We will also briefly present other contexts where pricing seems an appropriate way to incentivize users to participe by rewarding them in situations where each new user introduces an added-value to the network capability, such as for example in ad-hoc networks or peer-to-peer networks. A current research direction we will emphasize comes from the observation that there is not only a relation between customers and providers, but also a competition among providers and heterogeneous technologies, and this aspect needs to be integrated in the models and proposals. A typical example is the competition for access points at a WiFi hotspot, or the choice between different access media (WiFi, WiMax, UMTS, etc.). Similarly, pricing is also now a requirement among competitive providers themselves, which need to exchange traffic to ensure end-to-end delivery. Those points are still in their infancy and we will introduce the challenges and some proposals. This talk is at the heart of cross-disciplinary and novel aspects of networks and system management, on the economics of infrastructure management. It involves networking techniques, quantitative network modeling and model evaluation methods, economy themes, game theory, control theory and optimisation. [download]

  • IFIP/IEEE IM 2009 - keynote by Yechiam Yemini - Can Genomic Networks Teach Integrated Management?

    (29.Sep. 22:22)
    Cells use complex networks to handle metabolic, regulatory and signaling operations. Assuring robust operations of these networks is, literally, a matter of life and death. These networks, furthermore, must be able to adapt to significant changes in their operating environment; e.g., in the absence of glucose a bacteria may need to reconfigure its networks to process lactose. Cellular networks thus face similar challenges of managing failures and configuration changes as communication networks. Unlike communication networks, however, these operations management functions must be integrated into the networks design. This presentation will consider some of the architectural fundamentals of genomic networks from the perspective of integrated network management. [download]
  • IFIP/IEEE IM 2009 - keynote by Adam Drobot - Managing IP Networks for Critical Functions

    (29.Sep. 22:22)
    Over time the "Internet" has become the central element for integration of network functions and services. In a very profound sense the "Internet" has dramatically lowered the time and cost for creating new applications, new services, and new ways of social interaction. At the same time what we now call the "Internet" includes an enabling layer of computing, storage, communications, software, and special purpose devices. The "Internet" is increasingly the delivery mechanism for critical services. Some of these are related to: control systems for utilities and transportation; financial services; healthcare; safety; law enforcement; and emergency response. The consequence is that at least portions of the "Internet" must exhibit reliability, high availability, and scalability to serve large numbers of citizens. The talk will concentrate on the approaches and challenges of managing and operating hardened IP infrastructure suitable for critical services and will examine the requirements from illustrative application examples.

  • IFIP/IEEE IM 2009 - keynote by Owen Brown - Fractionated Space Systems: Networking in the Next Space Age

    (29.Sep. 22:22)
    Fractionated space systems offer a radically new approach to designing, building, testing, launching, operating, maintaining, and evolving spacecraft. Fractionation is the process whereby a satellite is decomposed into a cluster of wirelessly networked smaller spacecraft. This cluster creates a "virtual satellite" that is fundamentally more flexible and robust than its monolithic counterpart. In 2007 the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) began a program known as System F6 that will attempt to design, build, and launch the very first fractionated space system. Dr. Owen Brown, creator of the concept, and the Program Manager of F6, will explain the technical challenges, approach, and the potential implications of F6 on future space architectures. [download]

  • IFIP/IEEE IM 2009 - keynote by Alan Ganek - Service Management powers a smarter planet

    (29.Sep. 22:22)
    The reach of technology today extends nearly everywhere, and more importantly, in this new age, beyond the data center. Not only do more and more people carry the internet in the palm of their hand, but virtually all elements of business processes, production, collaboration and physical infrastructure are becoming instrumented electronically, networked and accessible, enabling new and exciting solutions and services. This is the foundation of a smarter planet, creating new value for business, government and science. A very dynamic infrastructure is required to support this expansion of value, powered by advances in Service Management to provide improved agility in leveraging technology, with vastly reduced costs and greater automation and efficiency. Service Management provides the visibility, control, and automation of this dynamic infrastructure, and a vehicle to monetize management technology. I will discuss market forces, opportunity, technology directions, and research challenges. [download]
  • IFIP/IEEE IM 2009 - Distinguished Experts Panel (Part 1)

    (29.Sep. 22:22)
    The theme of IM 2009, "Making Management Scalable, Robust, Cost-effective and Revenue Generating", points to key issues of a technical and business nature that the field has been trying to address for many years, yet continues to struggle with. At the same time, this has not prevented dramatic progress in the technologies they manage. Networks continue to grow, communication services are getting ever more pervasive, and innovation in those services continues to grow. The question then arises, which impact does progress in management technology really have on the technology that it manages and its supporting businesses? Is the impact merely one of incremental improvements in economics, or is it more profound? If management was more scalable, robust, cost-effective, and revenue generating than it is, what would be the impact on the managed technologies and their adoption? Would we see even more rapid progress, would we see different and more powerful services than we do today, or would there be entirely new classes of applications that would suddenly become feasible? In other words, is management a bottleneck? On the other hand, is management in reality doing just fine and its challenges mostly imagined? In which areas does progress in management really matter, and why? Panelists: Alexander Clemm (panel moderator), John Strassner, Alan Ganek, Joseph L. Hellerstein, Larry Bernstein, George Pavlou [download]

  • IFIP/ACM AIMS 2008 - Tutorial: Where to Publish - AIko Pras

    (02.Jul. 15:00)
    In this short tutorial we stress the importance of publishing your research results at the right venues. First we identify the workshops, conferences, magazines and journals in the area of network and systems management. We will discuss the quality of some of our conferences and journals, as perceived by experts in our field, as well as people outside our area. For this we present some acceptance rates, acceptance procedures, conference and journal rankings, as well as impact factors. Although some Ph.D. students may believe that a main goal is to publish as many papers as possible, this tutorial will stress that there are other important metrics, such as the number of citations, that are used to judge the quality of your research. We will discuss one metric that is currently popular, called the H-factor, and explain how to measure your own H-factor, using for example the Web of Science (instead of Google's scholar). The tutorial concludes with explaining the importance of publishing in journals indexed in Thomson's Science Citation Index (SCI), or alternatives like Scopus. It also explains CPP, JCS and FCS factors. [download]

  • IEEE/IFIP NOMS 2008 - Keynote 1 - Roberto Saracco: From Value Chains to Ecosystem: New Opportunities for Telecommunications and New Challenges for Managing Networks and Services

    (08.Apr. 14:00)
    The world is getting flatter and flatter, hierarchies and structures leave way to way to mesh and mash ups. Value chains morphs into ecosystems. The impact on the biz is significant. What are the new challenges that the management of networks and services have to meet? In addition, ecosystems tend to have a much more dynamic sense of stability, their evolution is subtle in the short term but can be staggering in the longer term. And as they evolve they may overlap and this leads to dramatic changes in the way biz and supporting infrastructures are shaped. Words like pervasive and ubiquitous may assume a quite different connotation: no more something planned and directed from the center to the edges under the control of few actors, rather something happening as result of loosely related actions originating at the edges. The talk will address the broad picture to stimulate thinking on the direction for the next steps, both in fixed and mobile infrastructures as well as in the changing paradigm of service creation and provisioning.

  • IEEE/IFIP NOMS 2008 - Keynote 2 - Ian Akyildiz: Spectrum, Network And Operations Management in Cognitive Radio Networks

    (09.Apr. 14:00)
    Today's wireless networks are characterized by a fixed spectrum assignment policy. However, a large portion of the assigned spectrum is used sporadically and geographical variations in the utilization of assigned spectrum ranges from 15% to 85% with a high variance in time. The limited available spectrum and the inefficiency in the spectrum usage necessitate a new communication paradigm to exploit the existing wireless spectrum opportunistically. This new networking paradigm is referred to as cognitive radio networks. In this talk, the novel functionalities and current research challenges of the cognitive radio networks are explained in detail. More specifically, an overview of the cognitive radio technology is provided and the network architecture is introduced. Moreover, the cognitive network functions such as spectrum management, spectrum mobility and spectrum sharing are explained in detail. The influence of these functions on the performance of the upper layer protocols such as routing and transport are investigated. Moreover, the network management, operation and maintenance problems are highlighted and open research issues in these areas are also outlined. [download]

  • IEEE/IFIP NOMS 2008 - Distinguished Experts Panel (Part 1)

    (10.Apr. 22:10)
    In recent years we have been introduced to computing environments that integrate wireless and wired components, providing ubiquitous access to information services and applications in a seamless manner. The years to come are expected to be more exciting as we will witness a proliferation in the use of emerging wireless technologies (e.g., sensor networks, vehicular networks, etc.) and enhanced networked applications (e.g., biosensing networks for healthcare, terrestrial ecology observing systems, smart spaces, dynamic communities, etc.) Such increasingly pervasive environments will require new management strategies, which can cope with resource constraints, multi-federated operation, scalability, dependability, context awareness, security, mobility, to mention just a few challenges. The issue to be addressed in this Distinguished Experts Panel is whether we are reinventing the wheel or there are real new challenges ahead. If so, what are they, in which context, and how should we approach them? If not, how can existing management solutions be used/combined/modified/extended in order to address the management needs the emeging ubiquitous environments?

BTO management software and services help you understand the impact of technology on your business outcomes and help to make your most important strategic initiatives succeed. [download]
  • IFIP/IEEE IM 2007 - Keynote by Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Gentzsch

    (23.May. 09:45)
    Over the past decade, due to the promising potential of the client-server paradigm, our IT infrastructures have grown along with our changing research and business needs, with often ad-hoc add-ons and fixes, as globalization proceeded to flatten the world. Today, many businesses and research communities face the need to restructure and align their existing IT infrastructures to achieve the flexibility and efficiency needed to compete in a rapidly changing world. During the same time, the grid computing paradigm has evolved, providing 'piping' technology and tools to virtualize the whole IT stack, from the network and hardware resources up to the application and services layer. Still, our experts in multiple locations work on different building blocks, like the Open Grid Services Architecture (OGSA), the Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), or the Web Oriented Architecture (WOA), within local or global settings. Just because we are using different names must not mean that they are so different. Therefore, one aim of our presentation should be to analyze the differences and commonalities of these architectures, and demonstrate their strengths with the aid of practical use cases. This presentation has a slight grid-bias, in concert with the perspective and experience of the speaker. [download]

    Best practices in IT service delivery have evolved from a focus on resource management, past systems management to the new era of service management. Leading IT organizations are implementing a services oriented framework that shifts the focus from a reactive to a proactive model that delivers high value services aligned to business needs. This presentation will discuss several best practices and case studies for this evolution in service delivery management. [download]
  • IFIP/IEEE IM 2007 - Panel - Techniques for Policy Refinement: The Importance of Going One Level Down!

    (22.May. 14:30)
    Policy Refinement refers to the process of deriving concrete implementable policies from higher-level goals or Service Level Agreements. It has been presented often as one of the most desirable research objectives in policy-based management yet one of the most challenging to address. In recent years, several approaches that have made some headway towards addressing this goal have emerged. They include amongst others: goal elaboration and abductive reasoning, model checking, case-based reasoning, and model transformation based on models and ontologies. The aim of this panel is to confront these approaches and in the process a number of questions will undoubtedly arise: are any of these approaches viable? How can refined policies be analysed e.g., for conflicts? How much user intervention is required? When is each approach applicable? Can these approaches be combined? Chair: Jorge Lobo, IBM T.J. Watson, USA. Panelists: Emil Lupu, Imperial College London, Great Britain, Joan Serrat, Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya, Spain, Seraphin Calo, IBM T.J.

  • IFIP/IEEE IM 2007 - Panel - The End of the Waterfall -- Integrating Application Development and Operational Management

    (23.May. 11:30)
    Two trends are pushing the industry towards the merger of application development and operational management, activities that have largely been treated as distinct phases in the software lifecycle. The first trend, which has been on-going for some time, is that it is very difficult to set up meaningful test environments for distributed applications, with test setup consuming a large fraction of the test time. These difficulties here are a consequence of the need to: (1) have a large scale environment in which to test and (2) access realistic data in order to conduct meaningful tests, and (3) have multiple different test environments for multiple test phases. The second trend is architectural styles such as SOA, mesh-ups, and Web2.0 in which programmers integrate services from live web sites. Such composites of running services are a very different style of development and deployment from the use of programming frameworks such as J2EE and .NET. Chair: Tamar Eilam, IBM T.J.

  • IFIP/IEEE IM 2007 - Panel - Virtual Machine Management: Old Wolf in New Sheep's Clothing?

    (24.May. 11:30)
    Virtualization allows isolation between applications and portability of applications over OS and hardware resources. But another main challenge of virtualization is to allow the decoupling of infrastructure providers (who deploy and maintain network equipment) from service providers (who deploy network protocols and offer end-to-end services). This new network virtualization will help the deployment of shared experimental facilities, such as PlanetLab and GENI. Those projects try to build this virtual network that will consist of virtual nodes and links that belong to the same service provider. This panel will try to give an answer to the mains issues behind this new virtual network: 1) How can we use virtualization technology (XEN, VMware, etc.) to build virtual nodes? 2) Why is an old technology like virtual machines suddenly so important again? 3) For what reason to people deploy virtualization technology? 4) How do people deal with the increased number of machines that need to be managed, and patched? 5) After virtualizing networks, machines, operating systems,..., what is the next thing to virtualize? 6) What are the network management functions we need to build and to deploy this new virtual network? 7) What are the issues for the network management community to solve the migration and configuration of those virtual nodes?

  • IFIP/IEEE IM 2007 - Panel - What's IT management worth to the business? (Part1)

    (24.May. 14:30)
    Enterprises in every industry sector are increasingly demanding that their investment in IT is justified by keeping IT service delivery and support aligned and in synch with their business objectives. Our research community is also growing more aware of the issue, as testifies the theme of this 2007 edition of IM: "moving from bits to business value". Our panelists will address the following questions and more from the audience. 1) What is the business value of managing networks and IT systems? 2) How can an enterprise capture this value, or even how can line of business managers be convinced that it pays off in the long run to spend money in management software? 3) What's automation really worth? 4) Would an IT manager make the same decisions as he/she makes every day if they had better visibility on the business that IT supports? 5) How is the network and system management community addressing these issues?

  • IEEE/IFIP NOMS 2006 - Distinguished Experts Panel (DEP) - VoIP Management - Intro

    (06.Apr. 18:05)
    VoIP Management - Does the Emperor have any clothes on? Intro by Aiko Pras (University of Twente). Recordings of the Distinguished Experts Panel (DEP) at the 10th IEEE/IFIP Network Operations and Management Symposium (NOMS 2006), which was held April 3-7, 2006 in Vancouver, Canada. The rapid growth of VoIP is watched by traditional operators with some concern. In the past a major share of their income came from the POTS and the intriguing question is whether they will be able to keep these revenues now that the transition to VoIP is taking place. Compared to new competitors such as Skype, traditional operators have the advantage that they can manage the entire VoIP service, including the QoS of the underlying IP network. The question to be discussed in this Distinguished Experts Panel is whether this advantage is real, or an illusion. Will it be possible, or necessary, to guarantee 99.999% availability? Should QoS be managed at the network level, or is user perceived QoS primarily determined by the choice of (wideband) codec? Does good VoIP quality imply that the home network should be managed? In short: what are the management challenges of VoIP, or are there none? [download]
