Distributed QoS Routing for Backbone Overlay Networks

  title={Distributed QoS Routing for Backbone Overlay Networks},
  author={Li Lao and Swapna S. Gokhale and Jun-Hong Cui},
In recent years, overlay networks have emerged as an attractive alternative for supporting value-added services. Many of these overlays are end-to-end overlays, but due to the difficulty of supporting end-to-end QoS purely in end-user overlays, backbone overlays for QoS support have been proposed. In this paper, we describe a backbone QoS overlay network architecture for scalable, efficient and practical QoS support. In this architecture, we advocate the notion of QoS overlay network (referred… CONTINUE READING
