Ontology Development for Network Management

Analysis: A baseline ontology is needed to remove language ambiguity and identify basic relationships between system components. In knowledge management, this can be accomplished with an ontology and/or a controlled vocabulary.

From the abstract:

Ontology is applied first to model the semantics of vendor specific terms, and secondly, to aid in automating the mapping between the terms, in order to create a unified application information base such that management of various brands of network equipment can be performed through a single gateway.
