ENVIRONMENTAL ACQUISITION IN MOBILE NETWORK SIMULATION

David Buchmann, Dominik Jungo, Ulrich Ultes-Nitsche

Abstract

The type or class of an object is not always sufficient to decide on its runtime behaviour. In many cases, the context of the object is also important. Environmental acquisition is a concept to handle context in information models. We explore the use of environmental acquisition for the management of computer network configuration and for network simulation. Physical location or subnet membership are part of the environment for a computer in a network. For the simulation of networks, environmental acquisition will be especially useful to model mobile devices moving from one area into an other. The concept is illustrated using the network configuration management project Verinec.
