Abstract

The vision for future telecommunication systems is considered as a representative example of a complex adaptive organization, where several elements, with various computational capabilities and network resources, are interconnected. The increased complexity and the continuously changing network environment make more intense the need for automation and for localized network management tasks. Self-management will allow the execution of advanced configuration actions, such as the change of the wireless network topology under various performance criteria. This paper focuses on the description of the principles and the architectural framework for the cognitive management of future communication systems, considering a complex radio access environment. This framework is used in order to present a solution on the autonomic topology control of future communication systems, where multi-hop links are established using the available relays stations, under the energy consumption constraint.
