Multipoint-to-Point Routing with QoS Guarantees Using Mobile Agents
To overcome the shortcomings of existing IP networks and to facilitate the overall quality-of-service (QoS) provisioning in the near-future networks, new technologies such as Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) and Differentiated Services (Diffserv) have been proposed for support of differentiation of classes of services and guarantee of QoS. Diffserv and MPLS, however, require improved capabilities from the current routing algorithms. In this paper, we investigate such an improvement by developing algorithms for determining the optimal multipoint-to-point (mp2p) routes through the use of mobile software agents. We present an mp2p routing scheme using a mobile intelligent agent system, called WAVE. The agents work in a highly distributed and parallel manner, cooperating to determine optimal routes in an mp2p connection scenario. This work aims at closing the gap between the theoretical routing research based on mobile agents, and practical routing requirements for real world networks...
