A markov decision-based bandwidth selling policy for an active MPLS service over ISDN3

Research output: Chapter in book / Conference proceedingConference article published in proceeding or bookAcademic researchpeer-review


We present an active MPLS service with bandwidth reservation for an advanced network called ISDN3. In essence, an active packet is employed to reserve a particular amount of bandwidth of a label switched path according to an adaptive pricing method. To maximize the network provider's earnings, a bandwidth selling policy is determined based on a Markov decision model. Analytical and simulation results are presented comparing the proposed bandwidth selling policy with two other schemes.
