ETSI Industry Specification Group on Autonomic Network Engineering for the Self-managing Future Internet (ETSI ISG AFI)
The area of Autonomic/Self-Managing Networks is still faced with problems of the lack of harmonized steps and efforts towards the establishment of common Specifications of the architectures and functionalities for Self-Management within Future Networks such as the envisaged Future Internet. Ideally, the harmonization can now be achieved through a newly established and well-focused Special Working Group in ETSI - a world renowned Telecommunications Standardization body. The SpecialWorking Group is an Industry Specification Group (ISG) called ”Autonomic network engineering for the self-managing Future Internet (AFI) . The AFI aims to serve as a focal point for the development of common Specifications and engineering frameworks that guarantee interoperability of nodes/devices for Self-managing Future Networks.
