Abstract
This final report provides a record of the results of the network management portion of the Sub-Network Access Control Technology Demonstrator project. It summarises the concepts behind this development effort, and describes the completed design and implementation work. This project is part of an on-going effort to build an IP based network using wireless technologies. However, the goal behind this project remains the production of an exploratory prototype. In other words, it is one more step towards the goal of transitioning wireless technologies to the Canadian Operational Fleet. (U) The proposed IP network presents several unique challenges to network management, due to its low bandwidth wireless links and continually changing topology, that existing products have not been designed to handle. These challenges are explored in order to provide a better understanding of the requirements they impose on network management. A network management tool design is then proposed and the implementation of its prototype is described.
