Conclusions and future work

We have shown how partitioning can be used to adapt an application to varying QoS and terminal capabilities. Partitioning can be used for implementing personal mobility, as well. Our first tests indicate that the solution is feasible as far as communication costs are concerned. Our next step will be to fully implement the partitioning system and use it in the Monads QoS prediction system, so that the prediction system can be optimally configured for different terminal types. The problem of how...

Resource allocation in network domains

Figure 1 exhibits a sample network with network domains. The resource management mechanism relies on finding the best path from the client to the server, then allocating the necessary resources. The network domains are the same as OSPF MOY 98 domains areas. In the OSPF, each router in a certain domain maintains an identical database describing the domain's topology. Therefore, any router in the domain can calculate the routing table of any other router. This property has been taken into account...
