MOME – Monitoring and Measurement Cluster

Platform for knowledge and tool exchange and for co-ordination of activities in the field of IP monitoring and measurement

The MOME cluster offers a platform for knowledge and tool exchange and for co-ordination of activities in the field of IP monitoring and measurement between current and upcoming IST projects and other European partners.

Many projects include monitoring and measurement components for traffic engineering, billing and accounting, security, etc. To avoid double work/funding and to improve the strength by synergetic knowledge transfer, common activities in-between these projects are required. This will be advanced by interoperability testing of monitoring and measurement components of different projects and collecting monitoring and measurement data in a common format in a measurement database. Collected data will be made accessible for the community over the Internet via simple interfaces for e.g. mathematical and statistical analyses. Monitoring and measurement related contributions to standardisation bodies like IETF from the participating projects will be co-ordinated by the MOME cluster.
