Application-Level Active Networks

Presented at Dublin Breakfast Briefing, 29th June 2001

Immo Hüneke

Technical Architect, Wireless Internet


Active network benefits

Enabler for rapid network service creation / deployment

standard languages

automated device configuration

Intelligent alternate-path routing (e.g. satellite down-link, “scatternet” configurations)

Intelligent caching (e.g. specialised XML conversion)

Content format conversion on the fly (e.g. video -> stream)

Dynamic content (e.g. localised advertising)

XML-policy-based management support, mobility support (including incremental code mobility)

Active Network Benefits

Application-Level Active Networks

Application-Level Active Networks


Active services networks

Active Services Networks

  • Programs supplied by the users of the network

  • Those programs will run on equipment owned by the operators

  • Users have access to custom services that will be managed by them without the operators’ intervention

  • Management system needs to be as lightweight as possible

  • Packet redirection based on “active” tag in transport header or MIME type in application header

Active server architecture

Active Server Architecture

  • Based on the ALAN architecture

  • Multiple execution environments are allowed to run on each active server

  • Each execution environment is allowed to run one or more proxylets

  • Each proxylet runs on its own Java virtual machine and can consist of more than one Java threads

  • The management system manages locally the resources consumed by the proxylets and execution environments

  • Thread resource consumption needs to be managed by application providers or the users themselves
