Decentralized Traffic Engineering in the Internet: A Sliding Mode Approach

    Project: Research project

    Project Details


    This project proposes to perform fundamental research on the development of classes of

    distributed control laws and algorithms for optimal traffic engineering in a multiple-

    service enabled Internet. Having its basis on recent results on the use of Sliding Mode

    theory in the context of control of computer networks, the proposed research aims at

    developing decentralized algorithms and tools for optimal traffic engineering in the

    presence of both multiple paths and multiple classes of service. The theoretical

    underpinnings of various traffic engineering algorithms will be developed. It will also

    provide solutions, implementation guidelines to practitioners in the field and also

    valuable input to standardization bodies on the effectiveness of various traffic

    engineering approaches.
