Open network topology services
MetadataShow full item record
This master project examines whether there is an existing model fordescribing network topologies in abstract and generic manner. I alsolooked for networking protocols for exchanging network topologiesand handling of dynamically creation of circuit connections acrossdomains. I?ve also been working on a prototype for visualization ofnetwork topologies using Network Administration Visualized (NAV)as a data backend, and further to check the possibilities to use thefound topology model in my prototype.My findings shows that there is progress towards creating a stan-dard topology model to describe network topologies in an abstractand generic manner. There is also progress in creating a network ar-chitecture with networking protocols for exchanging network topolo-gies across domains and providing a connection reservation service tohandle creation of dynamically circuit connections. Prototype showsthere is lots of ideas for further works on what to implement in re-gards of the found network topology model and networking systemsthat was found.
