A framework for end-to-end service differentiation: Network planes and parallel internets
Boucadair, M, Levis, A, Griffin, D, Wang, N, Howarth, MP, Pavlou, G, Mykoniati, E, Georgatsos, P, Quoitin, B, Sanchez, JR and Garcia-Osma, ML (2007) A framework for end-to-end service differentiation: Network planes and parallel internets IEEE COMMUN MAG, 45 (9). 134 - 143. ISSN 0163-6804
This article presents a technology-agnostic and a multi-dimensional (i.e., routing, forwarding, and traffic management dimensions) approach for the management of IP network resources to ensure service differentiation with both intra- and inter-domain scope. This article introduces the network plane (NP) and parallel Internets (PI) concepts for achieving service differentiation. Based on these concepts, a functional architecture together with a business model is presented. In addition, this article describes how the proposed approach can become a promising platform for the IP multimedia subsystem (IMS), with the objective of providing end-to-end QoS-enabled multimedia delivery across multiple providers to replace the flow-based reservation mode known as the VoIP resource reservation framework.
