The increased complexity of communication systems has led to new challenges in network management and more specifically, efficient mechanisms to manage communication resources. The vision of autonomic networking aims to overcome these challenges by incorporating self-governance into communication network devices, in order to improve overall efficiency and minimize human intervention. Since biological systems exhibit properties that meet the requirements of self-governance, this article proposes a bio-inspired approach to efficiently manage resources in IPbased core networks, called Bio-Inspired Resource Self-Management. The approach aims to provide a holistic solution for ISPs to manage their resources at different timescales as well as automating the interactions with underlying carrier network operators for dynamic resource provisioning. The implemented solution, in a simulator, has shown improved performance compared to traditional approaches.

Funding Information: NAZIM AGOULMINE [SM] is a full professor at the University of Evry, France. He is also a distinguished visiting professor at POSTECH, Korea. In France he is leading a research group on networking and multimedia systems (IBISC Lab). He received his Engineering degree in 1988 from USTHB, Algeria and his Master’s and Ph.D. degrees in computer science in 1989 and 1992, respectively, from the University of Paris XI, France. Since 1989, he has been involved in several projects on broadband wireless and fixed network management funded by the European Commission (Advance, Pemmon, Forms, ICM, Adanets, Seimonet, Sumo, Wellcom, Expeshare) and the French government (Cesame, Amarrage). His research interests are mainly wired and wireless network management and control, autonomic networks, and sensor networks. He is a member of several Technical Program Committees of IEEE international conferences (e.g., MMNS, IM, NOMS App, LANOMS, ASNOMS, MWCN, LAACS), and the co-author of three books on network architectures and management. He has served several times as Co-Chairman of international conferences and workshops (IEEE/IFIP MMNS, IEEE BcN Workshop, HPOV workshop, IEEE GIIS).
