Abstract

Active Networking is an expanding field of research in towards a new way to provide services for customers. The facility to develop and put customized services in the network enables a new management architecture to support this evolution. In a telecom environment, for example, the services can be purchased according to the customer’s requirements. Furthermore, a lot of different services is offered by service providers. In this work, we outline a mobile agent-based model for service management in Active Networks considering three of the five management functional areas: accounting, performance and configuration. The paper exploits the management of Virtual Active Networks - VANs, where the services can migrate from a VAN to another one, and presents a model and its components we have proposed for mobile service management in this context.
