Network Management and Control Framework for Hybrid Converged Environment
Companies nowadays are approaching towards an all IP paradigm by subscribing to different access technology links from several service providers for reliability, redundancy and availability while providing good Quality of Service (QoS). A framework for rule-based converged hybrid network management in multihoming environment is presented. Diversity and dimensionality of the platform's service, control, transport and access planes along with multiple objectives over the platform has led one to use Multi Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) technique. A simple use-case involving the dynamic decision-based routing at private-public network border is presented to validate the proposed solution.
