Project Member(s): Hoang, D.

Funding or Partner Organisation: Australian Research Council (ARC Discovery Projects)

Start year: 2005

Summary: Current Internet only supports limited quality of service (QoS) within isolated domains. This project allows critical applications to be deployed over the global Internet. The project employs a programmable architecture for composing services and intelligent software elements for negotiating acceptable QoS responses for individual application flows over multiple administrative domains. The architecture employs DiffServ s aggregation property to make it scalable for the Internet core. Successful outcomes would open the floodgates, allowing the development and deployment of applications such as high quality videoconferences, live sport broadcasts, remote medical services, network games, real-time on-line educations, and multimedia distributions.
