Abstract:

Traditional networking implementations follow a layered protocol model that implements a well-defined protocol stack. Major functionality is built into the software and hardware of end-point hosts and the network switches and routers. The entire complex of end-point host system software, network switch software, and networking services evolves slowly due to the need to reach consensus prior to widespread changes and improvements in the protocols. Active Network was developed to bring robust, rapid flexibility to developing and deploying new network services and protocols. Our research project covered three areas 1 Create an architecture and implementation for Innovative Active Networking Services based on Composite Protocols 2 Established criteria and evaluation measures for Active Network performance and 3 Implement Active Networking services on end-point host systems based on the Windows NT and Linux operating systems.
