Section: Application Domains
Heterogeneous networks, in which the node architecture, operating system, data format, etc. might vary significantly, pose additional challenges to network management and applications. Netquest offers a high level abstraction which allows to specify an application or a protocol independently of the underlying architecture. The Netquest system can run on any type of devices assuming nodes are not too constrained and are equipped with a (local) DBMS. The Netquest approach will be used to test network management and data-centric applications in heterogeneous networks.
