Master Engineer
Athlone, Co Westmeath, Ireland
I am a Master Engineer at the Network Management Lab at Ericsson. My team started designing a closed control loop pattern called Sahara, which resulted into a major contribution to Ericsson's COMPA architecture. We then moved to adaptive policies; a topic I've been working on for more than 10 years now. We developed a Unifying Policy Theory (UPT) and did build an Adaptive Policy EXecution Environment (APEX). The APEX software is now subject to an open source contribution. In this context, my team is heavily involved in the Linux Foundation project ONAP, mainly the Policy Framework.

I am also involved in advancing RINA, the Recursive InterNetwokring Architecture contributing to the Pouzin Society as well as participating in European projects (FP7 PRISTINE, H2020 ARCFIRE). We gained significant knowledge from the scientific, research, and development activities in the RINA community. Our particular interest is in advancing network management, as in decreasing variance and increasing invariance. This work also informs the product road map of Ericsson network management product my team is contributing to.

I was also involved in some standard activities, namely the IETF SUPA policy information model and the MEF modelling work.

A large part of my work is dedicated to patents and publications, with regular contributions to IEEE/IFIP NOMS, IFIP/IEEE IM, IEEE CNSM, and some journals in the area of network and service management. I maintain a list of publications at https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Sven_Van_der_Meer.
