This agent-based approach for improved Quality of Service provisioning follows the open programmable networks paradigm for complementing still-defective Internet reservation schemes. It provides more complete QoS provisioning in a flexible, highly scalable manner. The authors' Java-based agent platform might work especially well in heterogeneous environments, which distributed multimedia systems are most likely to face.
