This paper addresses the issues of charging, rate control and routing for a communication network carrying elastic traffic, such as an ATM network offering an available bit rate service. [] Key Method In the preferred version of the model, a user chooses the charge per unit time that the user will pay; thereafter the user's rate is determined by the network according to a proportional fairness criterion applied to the rate per unit charge. A system optimum is achieved when users' choices of charges and the…

Optimal link allocation and revenue maximization

This paper proposes a new methodology based on the economic models for competing traffic classes (classes of sessions) in packet networks, which aims to exploit the maximal capacity of the data network link by using the dynamic allocation strategy.

A game theoretic framework for rate allocation and charging of available bit rate (ABR) connections in ATM networks

An abstract, rigorous game-theoretic framework for rate-based control of Available Bit Rate services in ATM networks based on the idea of the Nash arbitration scheme in cooperative game theory which provides rate settings of users which are Pareto optimal from the network point of view of but are also consistent with the fairness axioms of game theory.

It is proved that for elastic traffic, where users value only their average throughput, the user's net utility maximization problem can be decomposed into two simpler problems: one involving the selection of the optimal signal quality, and one involving an optimal transmission rate.

A Simple Rate Control Algorithm for Maximizing Total User Utility.

The rate control problem with the objective of maximizing the total user utility takes into account the pos- sible differences in user requirements, and also provides a framework for achieving a wide range of fairness objectives.

Link allocation and revenue optimization for future networks

This paper introduces a model that can be used to share link capacity among customers under different kind of traffic conditions to support connections of given duration that requires a certain quality of service.

Dynamic and static charging of the ABR service in ATM network

This paper analyzes different approaches for a usage-based pricing of ABR, classified as static a pricing scheme where the charging parameters are established at the connection set up and do not change afterwards, and dynamic otherwise.

A primal-dual algorithm carried out by the data sources is used to solve the optimization problem in a decentralized manner and solves for the rates without the access to any global information.

Distributed connection admission control integrated with pricing for QoS provisioning and revenue maximization in wireless random access networks

Simulation results show that the proposed algorithm achieves higher saturation throughput as well as greater revenue gain when compared with an existing algorithm.



Integration of pricing and flow control for available bit rate services in ATM networks

A theoretically justified pricing scheme for ABR services which utilizes mechanisms provided by rate-based flow control as defined by the ATM Forum and shows that prices converge reasonably fast and do not have a negative effect on the convergence properties of flow control.

Correction to "A new approach to service provisioning in ATM networks"

The authors derive the network's adjustment scheme and the users' decision rule and establish their optimality, which leads to an alternative approach to service provisioning in an ATM network, in which the network offers directly for rent its bandwidth and buffers and users purchase freely resources to meet their desired quality.

Time scale analysis scalability issues for explicit rate allocation in ATM networks

A requirement of feasibility of the transmission rates is proposed, which results in oscillation-free operation of the algorithm while maintaining small queues at the switches, and a source policy is suggested to ensure feasibility of transmission rates.

Rate control algorithms for the ATM ABR service

The detailed framework for the ABR service standardized by the ATM Forum is reviewed, the underlying service philosophy and protocol design goals for ABR flow control, and the premises and high-level performance characteristics for the more promising ABR rate control schemes proposed so far are reviewed.

Charging and Accounting for Bursty Connections

This chapter describes how usage-sensitive pricing can encourage statistical sharing, and provides a quantitative framework for the discussion of pricing issues in systems where statistical sharing is important, based on the concept of an eeective bandwidth.

Fundamental Design Issues for the Future Internet

This paper addresses some of the fundamental architectural design issues facing the future Internet, and discusses whether the Internet should adopt a new service model, how this service model should be invoked, and whether this service models should include admission control.
