An Adaptive Virtual Path Allocation Policy for Broadband Networks

  title={An Adaptive Virtual Path Allocation Policy for Broadband Networks},
  author={Ariel Orda and Giovanni Pacifici and Dimitrios E. Pendarakis},
We propose a new policy for virtual path bandwidth allocation in broadband networks. Based on a threshold scheme, our policy handles the inherent tradeoo between bandwidth utilization and processing costs. In each virtual path controller the thresholds are chosen so as to keep bandwidth utilization high, while obtaining a low rate of processing requests. Two novel ideas are used in our threshold scheme: adaptivity, which results in a better prediction of future bandwidth requirements ; and… CONTINUE READING
