Future Internet (FI) constitutes a complex, highly decentralized and dynamic environment of resources and systems, which imperils the network stability, jeopardizing the network performance and compromising an optimized use of resources. In this context, the UniverSelf research project proposes a promising solution, called Unified Management Framework (UMF). UMF targets include the trustworthy network stability, which is accomplished through the coordinated control of the autonomous and distributed future networked systems, based on operators objectives. Accordingly, this paper presents the relevant UMF operation, including a description of its functional blocks and their underlying mechanisms. In the framework of this solution, the paper also describes the Network Empowerment Mechanisms (NEM) that empower networks with autonomic algorithms/solutions and can be embedded into existing and future systems in a plug and play way.
