D. Lewis, D. O'Sullivan, R. Power, J. Keeney ‘Semantic interoperability for an autonomic knowledge delivery service’ in proceedings of the 2nd IFIP WG6.6 International Workshop on Autonomic Communication - Autonomic Communication Principles (WAC 2005), Athens, Greece, 3-5 October 2005, LNCS 3854, Springer, (2005), pp 129 - 140
The development and deployment of interconnected networks is being
increasingly limited by their complexity and the concomitant cost of managing
the operational network. Autonomic Communication aims to reduce this cost,
by migrating management intelligence towards the network elements and
empowering operational support staff to specify what network behaviour in
terms of goals and constraints. Towards this aim we propose a key
infrastructural service that enables the efficient delivery of network operations
knowledge to, and only to, nodes that have expressed an interest in that
knowledge. This Knowledge Delivery Service mediates operational network
knowledge in an open, ontological form, thereby promoting the graceful
evolution of network management applications from contemporary to fully
autonomic. To cope with the inevitable heterogeneity of knowledge across the
population of network nodes, the service provides a level of semantic
interoperability that will be transparent to the nodes providing and consuming
knowledge. The Service will be based on content-based networking principles.
This paper describes work towards supporting semantic interoperability in such
a Knowledge Delivery Service.
