Offering reliable novel service in modern heterogeneous networks is a key challenge and an important prospective income source for many network operators and providers. Providing reliable future service in a cost effective scalable manner requires efficient use of networking and computing resources. This can be done by making the network more self-enabled, i.e. making it capable of making distributed local decisions regarding the utilization of the available resources. However, such decisions must be correlated in order to achieve the global overall goal (maximizing the performance and minimizing the cost).
