A framework of economic traffic management employing self-organization overlay mechanisms


Oechsner, S; Stiller, Burkhard; et al (2008). A framework of economic traffic management employing self-organization overlay mechanisms. In: 3rd International Workshop on Self-organizing Systems (IWSOS 08), Vienna, Austria, 10 December 2008 - 12 December 2008, 84-96.

Abstract

Applications based on overlays have become very popular, due to the separation they provide and the improvement of perceived QoS by the end-user. Recent studies show that overlays have a significant impact on the traffic management and the expenditures of the underlying network operators. In this paper, we define a framework for Economic Traffic Management (ETM) mechanisms that optimize the traffic impact of overlay applications on ISP and telecommunication operator networks based on the interaction of network operators, overlay providers and users. We first provide a definition and an overview of Self-Organization Mechanisms (SOMs) and ETM for overlays. We then describe a basic framework for the interaction of components of SOMs and ETM, in terms of information and metrics provided, decisions made etc. Finally, we describe in detail how SOMs can be used to support ETM and we illustrate our approach and its implications by means of a specific example.

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.
