ETMS: A system for economic management of overlay traffic


Soursos, S; Racz, P; Stiller, B; et al (2008). ETMS: A system for economic management of overlay traffic. In: Future Internet Conference (FIA 2008), Bled, Slovenia, 31 March 2008 - 2 April 2008, 1-10.

Abstract

The concept of Economic Traffic Management (ETM) encompasses
various techniques for optimizing overlay networks considering both, underlay and overlay networks’ performance requirements as well as the resulting economic implications for ISPs. This work presents several mechanisms through an overall ETM System (ETMS), identifying the possibility for synergies between mechanisms, both in the sense of complementarity of decision grounds and in the sense of functionality and components employed thereby. The paper describes the core ETMS architecture and how various mechanisms are instantiated. It continues with the discussion of the flexibility and modularity of this architecture, allowing for the accommodation of synergies. Finally, it presents selected results from the test-bed trials of the ETMS and a dedicated discussion on incentives behind these ETM mechanisms.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
