4 DOT´98 September 1998 Heidelberg ACTS Programme AC338 MIAMI: Mobile Intelligent Agents for Managing the Information Infrastructure MIAMI Main Objectives The MIAMI project focuses on the following objectives: o Development and validation of an uniform mobile intelligent agent framework according to the requirements of an open European Information Infrastructure (EII) o Convergence of the OMG MASIF and FIPA mobility specifications

5 DOT´98 September 1998 Heidelberg ACTS Programme AC338 MIAMI: Mobile Intelligent Agents for Managing the Information Infrastructure MIAMI Main Objectives (cont.) o Development of agent based solutions for managing the open EII and provision of Advanced Communication and Information (ACI) services o Contribution to standardisation o Demonstration of results in a pan-European trial

6 DOT´98 September 1998 Heidelberg ACTS Programme AC338 MIAMI: Mobile Intelligent Agents for Managing the Information Infrastructure MIAMI Key Issues o Pan-European cooperative management of advanced telecommunications and information services o Interaction between management systems of different management domains in an Electronic Commerce context o Business process driven relationship between the service management layer and the network management layer

7 DOT´98 September 1998 Heidelberg ACTS Programme AC338 MIAMI: Mobile Intelligent Agents for Managing the Information Infrastructure Scope of MIAMI The MIAMI project will focus on: o The investigation of benefits gained from the mobility of agent intelligence in the context of telecommunications management and ACI services, and o Implementation and validation of the MIAMI framework in a pan-European test-bed with selected network management and ACI service scenarios.

8 DOT´98 September 1998 Heidelberg ACTS Programme AC338 MIAMI: Mobile Intelligent Agents for Managing the Information Infrastructure Outside the Scope The MIAMI project will not focus on: o Developing and validating solutions for interoperability among heterogeneous agents or agent systems o Developing and validating an extended agent communication language

9 DOT´98 September 1998 Heidelberg ACTS Programme AC338 MIAMI: Mobile Intelligent Agents for Managing the Information Infrastructure Current State of MIAMI o Completed activities: o Mobile agent platforms evaluation F F Selected initial platform: Grasshopper of IKV++ o Agent platform enhancement requirements analysis F F Deliverable D1 (August 1998) o Activities in progress: o Enhanced agent platform specification and design o Application case studies o Subsequent activities: o Platform enhancements implementation (start 11/1998) o Applications design and implementation (start 01/1999)

10 DOT´98 September 1998 Heidelberg ACTS Programme AC338 MIAMI: Mobile Intelligent Agents for Managing the Information Infrastructure MIAMI Deliverables The MIAMI Project will produce the following deliverables: o D1 Platform Enhancement Requirements08/98 o D2 Platform Enhancement Specification11/98 o D3 Case Studies01/99 o D4 Case Study Prototypes09/99

11 DOT´98 September 1998 Heidelberg ACTS Programme AC338 MIAMI: Mobile Intelligent Agents for Managing the Information Infrastructure Technical Approach The MIAMI project develops: o An improved MIA platform and o Two trial applications based on it: F F The Active Virtual Pipe (AVP) and Demonstration of network and service management based on agents F F The Virtual Enterprise Builder (VEB) Demonstration of agent based applications and communication services

12 DOT´98 September 1998 Heidelberg ACTS Programme AC338 MIAMI: Mobile Intelligent Agents for Managing the Information Infrastructure Active Virtual Pipe Pro-active component of the MIAMI information and communication infrastructure: o Provision of advanced communication and connectivity services in the business context (dynamic “VPN” - resources on demand) o Agent based network management: o QoS management o Fault management o Configuration management o Use of multiple transport network providers o Spot market for network resources o Provision of basic VE management services (generic workflow management capabilities)
