Analysis and implementation of a Policy Server
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
For some years the Internet has been growing very rapidly and currently everyone is asking for better service (mainly security and quality) in the network of networks. But managing these networks has become an impos- sible task for a network manager (or even a team). That is why everybody is now building tools to help network managers using so called Policy-based Network Management.
One of the elements for such a Policy-based Network Management system is the Policy Server. The work of the Policy Server is to interpret the decisions that the network manager has taken with the help of other tools and to apply them to the components of the network to be controlled. The purpose of this thesis is to implement a Policy Server to provide quality of service (QoS) using COPS-PR (Common Open Policy Service for Provisioning), and to evaluate it by comparing it with alternatives (for example using Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), instead of Common Open Policy Service (COPS) protocol).
This Masters Project was conducted at Ericsson Datacom Networks and IP Services in Stockholm, Sweden.
