Cost-effective deployment of bandwidth partitioning in broadband networks

A Arvidsson, JM De Kock, AE Krzesinski, PG Taylor



We consider the issue of bandwidth partitioning in a multi-rate broadband network. Requests for a number of different types of connection are offered to the network. For the purposes of connection admission and resource allocation, we assume that it is possible to allocate an effective bandwidth to a single connection of each type. The network manager has the problem of implementing an admission control scheme to maximise the profit earned from the network. Our focus here is the extent to which it is a good idea to partition the bandwidth on the physical links to form reserved end-to-end logical links corresponding to the origin-destination pairs. It is clear that implementation of such part..
