Web Services for Converged IP Networks
Rapid growth of computer network leading to converging necessitates management of servers by a server. Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) based management cannot be used for the converged network management due to its limitations and relatively simple monitoring. Therefore, alternative technologies are required to meet various goals such as scalability, security, reduced development and operational cost, etc. Web service along with object oriented approach such as eXtensible Markup Language (XML) and Java seems to be promising approach for tighter system integration and robust device management. Based on the above, a prototype of Web Based Server of Server (WBSOS) has been designed.
