Network management entails monitoring and controlling various networks in
order to provide more reliable, secure and efficient network environments.
Various new wireless networks have been emerging to support USN
(Ubiquitous Sensor Networks), M2M (Machine-to-Machine) and IoT
(Internet of Things). The number of nodes what will be attached to these
emerging networks can vary from a few nodes to thousands or millions of
nodes. Many of these emerging networks will be connected to each other
and/or to infrastructure networks to communicate for various purposes.
Traditional, centralized management methods will not be scalable to
control and manage these huge and complex networks. This course will focus
on finding scalable methods and techniques to control and manage these
emerging networks. Particularly, we will study bio-inspired/nature-inspired
algorithms whether they can be appropriate solutions.
A course on
network managment (e.g., CS607) is required. If a
student did not take a network management course but wishes to take this
course, the student may be admitted under the discretion of the instructor.
There will not
be a required text for this course. Research papers will be selected from
journals and conferences and distributed to students to read.

may be handed in, but there will be a penalty of 20% of the mark for
assignments turned in less than one day late, and an additional penalty of 10%
for each day thereafter.

There will be a
term project (worth 60% of the final mark) in this course. It can be a system
development project or a research project. The project topic must be proposed
and approved. For a system development project, the following schedule is a
tentative one. For a research project, a similar schedule will be used.
