Abstract

Future networks will need to accommodate a significantly augmented user demand, mainly stemming from the wireless and mobile domains. This will stress network operators for developing mechanisms to confront the challenges and to leverage the opportunities posed by such a versatile radio environment. In particular, the situation calls for adaptive and flexible management paradigms that are able to dynamically manage network elements and terminals thus ensuring the great availability and efficient usage of spectrum and other radio resources. Framed within the above, this paper considers a cognitive management architecture, which is destined to the optimized management of future wireless networks and terminals operating in versatile radio environments and presents a performance evaluation methodology, which was set up for measuring the signaling loads that the operation of the architecture will bring in to the managed network.
