Quality of Services Assurance for Multimedia Flows Based on Content-Aware Networking

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper proposes a new architectural solution to support Quality of Services (QoS) for real time media flows in a multi-domain system based on new concepts as Content-Aware Networks (CAN) and Network Aware Application (NAA). The system described, based on coupling between network and applications is focused, but not limited to, on multimedia services, with content aware processing in the network, including QoS assurance. The architecture actually parallelizes the Internet in virtual CAN networks, spanning multiple domains and assigning specific quality of services classes to different CANs.
