— We propose an adaptive bandwidth provisioning mechanism based on packet-level measurements (done at discrete time intervals) without any assumption on the statistical property of the traffic. Our approach consists of two stages: traffic forecasting , followed by bandwidth estimation. For the first stage, we have developed a Probability-Hop Forecasting(More)
Network providers are often interested in providing dynamically provisioned bandwidth to customers based on periodically measured nonstationary traffic while meeting service level agreements (SLAs). In this paper, we propose a dynamic bandwidth provisioning framework for such a situation. In order to have a good sense of nonstationary periodically measured(More)
In most current networks, the bandwidth required to meet some service guarantee is allocated statically although the traffic is dynamic is nature. In this thesis, we explore the development of a framework that dynamically adjusts bandwidth in response to the traffic dynamics. An advantage of the dynamic allocation idea in future networks is better resource(More)
