Key Research Challenges in Network Management

Abstract : Although network management has always played a key role for industry, it only recently received a similar level of attention from many research communities, accelerated by funding opportunities from new initiatives, including the FP7 Program in Europe and GENI/FIND in the United States. Work is ongoing to assess the state of the art and identify the challenges for future research in the field, and this article contributes to this discussion. It presents major findings from a two-day workshop organized jointly by the IRTF/NMRG and the EMANICS Network of Excellence, at which researchers, operators, vendors, and technology developers discussed the research directions to be pursued over the next five years. The workshop identified several topic areas, including management architectures, distributed real-time monitoring, data analysis and visualization, ontologies, economic aspects of management, uncertainty and probabilistic approaches, as well as understanding the behavior of managed systems.
