Virtual Active Networks - Safe and Flexible Environments for Customer-Managed Services [chapter]

Marcus Brunner, Rolf Stadler
1999 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We introduce a framework that allows customers to deploy and manage their own active services in a provider domain. The key concept in this framework is the Virtual Active Network (VAN).  ...  We describe how the VAN concept, VAN management, and customer service management is realized on ANET, an active networking testbed.  ...  Customer A and B have two (active) customer premises networks each, and customer C has three. The Virtual Active Networks for customer A and customer B have been set up by the VAN management system.  ...
