Resource Allocation Methodology for Internet Heterogeneous Traffic

CI Ani

Abstract


The mode of operation of internet can lead to congestion which, in turn, leads to degradation in the quality of service (QoS). Congestion can be seen as overflow in the input and/or output buffers of switches at a node. Research issue relating to internet services is determining the optimum network resources - in terms of transmission link bandwidth and buffer capacity in switches - that are required for heterogeneous internet traffic which guarantees a given QoS, even under high network loading conditions.

This paper, therefore, presents a method for determining the optimum internet resources required for heterogeneous (data and voice only) traffic services to guarantee given QoS requirements
