The "Always Best Packet Switching" architecture for SIP-based mobile multimedia services

Vittorio Ghini, Stefano Ferretti, Fabio Panzieri
2011 Journal of Systems and Software  
We term this operating mode of our architecture Always Best Packet Switching (ABPS). ABPS enables the use of policies for load balancing and recovery purposes.  ...  This paper presents a distributed architecture for the provision of seamless and responsive mobile multimedia services.  ...  It principally consists of a proxy-based distributed architecture implementing an approach we named Always Best Packet Switching (ABPS).  ...

Modeling the Always Best Packet Switching Mechanism

Stefano Ferretti, Vittorio Ghini, Moreno Marzolla, Fabio Panzieri
2012 2012 Sixth International Conference on Next Generation Mobile Applications, Services and Technologies  
In this work we investigate the performance of the Always Best Packet Switching (ABPS) operation approach.  ...  For the assessment, we propose a performance model based on Markov reward models.  ...  The Always Best Packet Switching (ABPS) operation mode solves these problems [4] . It is able to determine the most appropriate NIC to use at any instant.  ...
