An Agent-Based Approach for Coordinated Multi-Provider by Monique Calisti

By Monique Calisti

Communication networks are very complicated and interdependent structures requiring complex administration and keep watch over operations below strict source and time constraints. A finite variety of community elements with constrained capacities have to be shared for dynamically allocating a excessive variety of site visitors calls for. in addition, coordination of peer supplier is needed every time those calls for span domain names managed via certain operators. during this context, conventional human-driven administration is changing into more and more insufficient to deal with the transforming into heterogeneity of actors, providers and applied sciences populating the present deregulated market.

This ebook proposes a unique method of enhance multi-provider interactions in keeping with the coordination of self sustaining and self-motivated software program entities performing on behalf of precise operators. Coordination is accomplished by way of allotted constraint pride options built-in inside of fiscal mechanisms, which allow automatic negotiations to ensue. this permits software program brokers to discover effective allocations of provider calls for spanning numerous networks with no need to bare strategic or private facts. moreover, a singular manner of addressing source allocation and pricing in a compact framework is made attainable via strong source abstraction techniques.

The ebook is addressed to researchers within the region of agent know-how, automatic negotiation, dispensed constraint pride, and networking, particularly for what matters source allocation and pricing. moreover, it may be a invaluable source for either community and repair providers

2. From Networking to Interworking Tasks 37 The Telecommunication Management Network Approach The Telecommunication Management Network (TMN) has been defined by the ITU-T [140], [143] with the aim of providing a unified framework for facilitating the management of heterogeneous networks by organising, across a certain number of layers, the management of diverse communication components. More precisely, the TMN architecture defines three main conceptual layers that address different needs to the organisation of a providers operations.

25, Frame Relay and ATM. 2. Datagrams from node 1 to node 2, for instance, can take different routes and a routing decision is made separately for each packet, possibly depending on the traffic at the moment the packet is sent. The Internet is the most known example of connection-less packet switched network using the Internet Protocol (IP). 1 Connection-oriented Networks Connection oriented networks can be further classified by considering the specific technology that is used to either transport, manage and/or deliver data traffic.

This probability corresponds to the risk of isolating some network nodes in terms of reachability in a BI-based network resources structure called Blocking Island Hierarchy (BIH). By deploying the BIH structure, the ACE mechanism becomes able to map network criticalness into prices and pricing becomes an instrument to effectively control network resource allocation (see Chapter 5). 3 Volume Outline The rest of the book is organised as follows. • Chapter 2 reviews background principles of communication networks, introduces multi-provider scenarios and discusses related work in the fields relevant to this framework.
