Open network topology services
This master project examines whether there is an existing model for
describing network topologies in abstract and generic manner. I also
looked for networking protocols for exchanging network topologies
and handling of dynamically creation of circuit connections across
domains. I?ve also been working on a prototype for visualization of
network topologies using Network Administration Visualized (NAV)
as a data backend, and further to check the possibilities to use the
found 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 abstract
and 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 to
handle creation of dynamically circuit connections. Prototype shows
there is lots of ideas for further works on what to implement in re-
gards of the found network topology model and networking systems
that was found.
