Integrated Information and Network Management for End-to-End Quality of Service
Information Management (IM) services provide key technology for net-centric operations by enabling the active discovery, management, and dissemination of information based on content and metadata, through a publish/subscribe/query paradigm that decouples information producers and consumers. Publish-subscribe-based Information Management (IM) services provide a key enabling technology for net-centric operations. This paper describes technology for Quality of Service (QoS) and Internet-Protocol-based Airborne Networking features for IM services. Enhancing IM services with airborne networking features improves effectiveness in combined tactical and enterprise networks with mobile airborne and ground-based embedded platforms interacting with enterprise systems in command and control operations.
