               A Reference Model for Autonomic Networking
                  draft-ietf-anima-reference-model-07

Abstract

   This document describes a reference model for Autonomic Networking
   for managed networks.  It defines the behaviour of an autonomic node,
   how the various elements in an autonomic context work together, and
   how autonomic services can use the infrastructure.
