A management platform is an integral part of any modern computer network. Its role in any kind of network (research or commercial) is undeniable. By using the management solution, the operators of the network monitor, troubleshoot and manage the network from a centralized location.
In a research network such as the Mid Sweden University (MIUN) IPTV test bed, it also plays a very important role. Researchers can setup different configurations for the underlying network according to their research goals.
MIUN IPTV test bed is expanding in the sense that it is covering a greater geographical area and more researchers are using the network in order to carry out their experiments. In this project, an attempt will be made to develop a management platform for the IPTV network.
This platform will manage the whole network and will give the researchers opportunity to setup trail field by configuring the network devices according to their experiments.
