Monitoring End to End Bandwidth on Demand Circuits Over Ethernet Infrastructure
Source: University of Passau
AutoBAHN (Automated Bandwidth Allocation across Heterogeneous Networks) has specified and is now prototyping a Bandwidth on Demand (BoD) service intended to operate in a multi-domain environment using heterogeneous transmission technologies. The AutoBAHN system aims at providing a guaranteed capacity, connection-oriented service between two end points. This paper highlights the architecture of the monitoring system for the AutoBAHN service, the implementations challenges and the decisions taken, focusing on monitoring end to end BoD reservations over ethernet infrastructure.
