Application-Specific Policies:
Beyond the Domain Boundaries

University of Cambridge, Computer Laboratory,

We propose a network management and control architecture that is able to dynamically load application-specific code, which in turn is able to control resources at a very low level. Recognising the existing diversity of network management and control architectures, we then address the problem of interoperability between control architecture domains. Given such interoperability, we show how clients can install application-specific policies that span multiple domains.
