Managing Network Complexity through Autonomic Networking

The increasing complexity of today's networks means that sooner or later we will have to change the way we operate networks. Here we present an approach to make networks much easier to manage and operate: Autonomic Networking. The fundamental concept is that network elements become self-managing, and administrator interaction is limited to a high-level, network wide, abstract policy that we call "intent".
