Abstract

This paper describes a framework for admission control for a packet-based network where the decision are taken by edge devices or end-systems, rather than resources within the network. The decisions are based on the results of probe packets that the end-systems send through the network, and require only that resources apply a mark to packets in a way that is load dependent. One application example is the Internet, where marking information is fed back via an ECN bit, and we show how this approach allows a rich QoS framework for flows or streams. Our approach allows networks to be explicitly analyzed, and consequently engineered.
