The tremendous development of Internet infrastructures as well as services that support heterogeneous devices and communication technologies has led to an increase in network management complexity. Autonomic control is one way to manage complexity. Policy Based Management System (PBMS)s provide a consistent model for decision making using a set of abstractions (e.g., to manage the system in a manner that is independent from the complexities of low level network technologies). In this paper, we develop a hierarchical PBMS that is based on bioinspired mechanisms for organism regulation. The inspiration from biological systems supports mechanisms for selforganisation and self-management at different levels of the hierarchy. We employ this hierarchy towards the policy based management system for autonomic communications systems.
