Title: (EN) ACTIVE TEMPERATURE MANAGEMENT OF NETWORK RESOURCES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)

The invention relates to an apparatus and method for controlling the workload of a plurality of intermediate forwarding devices (102) in an application control network. For each intermediate forwarding device operated in a predetermined configuration an individual temperature characteristic is determined and a maximum workload for each data forwarding unit based on the temperature characteristics and the respective predefined configuration is extrapolated. Information on a plurality of communication path configurations through the application control network (300) to one or more application control components (301-305) required by an application scene defined in an application plan (202) is used and a particular communication path configuration from the plurality of communication path configurations is selected that keeps the workload of each intermediate forwarding device below the maximum workload. The selected communication path configuration is programmed into the intermediate forwarding devices for the duration of an application scene.
