Project Overview

The objective of Autonomic Internet (AUTOI) is to create a communication resource overlay with autonomic characteristics for the purposes of fast and guaranteed service delivery.

Given this objective, AutoI will design and develop, based on a well-defined methodologies, an open software infrastructure and tools that enables the composition of better (fast and guaranteed) services in an efficient manner and the execution of these services in an adaptive (Autonomic form) way. To this end, we introduce Virtualisation of network resources and Policy-Based Management technique to describe and control the internallogic of the services, utilising Ontology-based information and data models to facilitate the Internet service deployment in terms of programmable networks facilities supporting the next generation of internet (NGN)

This resource overlay would support the following features:
1.Continuing service delivery in a dynamically changing resource environment and context (Resource context)
2. Resource support for changes in service requirements or introduction of new services (service context)
3. Seamless service mobility across multi-domain (technology, operator) (inter-/intra- domain) resource environments
4. Mechanism for unification and separation of the virtual resources at the management level
5. Exhibit self-* functions in terms of supporting autonomic communications.
6. Ensuring secure, fast and guaranteed services delivery.

INRIA Team is the leader of WorkPackage 5 in the project: Service Enabler Plane
This involvement is directly linked to address the Objective 6 of the project work plan, namely the design of programmatic enablers for dynamic service driven configuration of communication resources.
The AutoI’s Service Enabler Plane (SP) consists of :
