Tlhong, Thapelo and Reeve, Jeff (2007) Modeling and Management of Service Level Agreements for Digital Video Broadcasting(DVB) Services At International Workshop on Self-Organizing Systems. 11 - 13 Sep 2007. , pp. 288-294.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Other)


This paper describes a metamodeling strategy of Service Level Agreements for Digital Video Broadcasting services based on the Service Level Agreement Language(SLAng). The purpose of the paper is to provide a detailed analysis os SLAs in this domain and provide a motivation for modeling and automating their management. We also discuss why precise and machine readable SLAs can improve the level of automation in SLA management thereby reducing potential violations. The metamodeling approach based on a Model driven Architecture(MDA) described in this paper also simplifies the integration of a SLA Management system with other infrastructure that delivers the service to the client.
