Sharing of NKN Facilities in Static Step Topology under Distributed Environment


The government of India has set up distributed network in India for sharing the knowledge among the higher learning Institutions in the year 2009 under Next Generation Services (NGN) and slowly-slowly it is expanding as the distributed computing network becomes very popular now days due to low cost involvement. This network is called as a National Knowledge Network (NKN) whose main purpose is to connect all the Indian universities, research institutions, research labs, digital libraries, countrywide classroom, etc. under one platform. In the present work, sharing of different kinds of facilities under NKN is demonstrated for the static step topology designed by the authors. The different kinds of facilities are connected through step topology and a well known modeling technique i.e. Unified Modeling Language (UML) is used for demonstrating the UML class diagram for sharing of all these facilities through step topology. Some experimental results are also demonstrated for the topology.
