An Architecture for Publishing and Distributing Service Components in Active Networks
- Application level active networks provide a way of transforming the current network infrastructure into one where new services and protocols are more easily adopted and utilized without the need for standardization. The main idea is to inject software components, provided by trusted service providers, inside the network nodes, so as to enable provision of new services. We deal with an application layer active networking system, and address the problem of publishing and distributing service components throughout the active network. The proposed architecture is based on forming a network of dedicated servers providing Content Distribution Network (CDN) functionality, and leads to smaller response times to client requests and decreased network traffic. Experimental results from a test network configuration, illustrate the benefits obtained from exploiting CDN capabilities, and support the viability of our approach.
