Redesign VNK Simulator

IBM Cologne decided to redesign their VNK (distributed network knots) software simulator and required consultancy regarding the message flow from a Q3-Stack to a MIB and data formats to be used. I proposed several techniques using ASN.1 and CORBA, designed filter interfaces and compiled information required for the implementation. Message control flow has been described in UML Use-cases, required information at various interfaces has been compiled, discussed and presented.
