Strategic Pricing in Next-Hop Routing with Elastic Demands [chapter]

Elliot Anshelevich, Ameya Hate, Koushik Kar
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Our next-hop routing and pricing model is in sharp contrast with the more common source routing and pricing models, in which the source of traffic determines the entire route from source to destination  ...  We consider a model of next-hop routing by self-interested agents.  ...  Our next-hop routing and pricing model is in sharp contrast with the more common "source routing" and pricing models (see e.g., [6, 10, 14, 17] ).  ...

Pricing, Competition, and Routing for Selfish and Strategic Nodes in Multi-hop Relay Networks [article]

Yufang Xi, Edmund M. Yeh
2007 arXiv   pre-print
We study a pricing game in multi-hop relay networks where nodes price their services and route their traffic selfishly and strategically.  ...  In this game, each node (1) announces pricing functions which specify the payments it demands from its respective customers depending on the amount of traffic they route to it and (2) allocates the total  ...  We consider a source s with elastic traffic demand.  ...

Pricing and revenue sharing strategies for Internet service providers

L. He, J. Walrand
2006 IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications  
In this paper, we present a generic model for pricing Internet services that are jointly offered by a group of providers.  ...  Based on the analysis, we suggest a scalable algorithm for providers to implement this policy in a distributed way and study its convergence property.  ...  Note that g r (p) is the reciprocal of the elasticity of the demand function on route r.  ...

Low-cost bus business models and the case of Brazil

Roberto Marx, Pedro Siqueira de Magalhães, Felipe Ferreira de Lara
2019 REGE Revista de Gestão  
Originality/value The recent regulation changes, the high demand for passengers and even the similarity of possible routes in Brazil to the ones in Europe and in the USA make Brazil a fertile soil for  ...  A similar price mechanism to the ones applied worldwide was also identified as doable in Brazil.  ...  The next part of the research focused in finding a plausible price for the selected Brazilian routes.  ...

Route Distribution Incentives [article]

Joud Khoury, Chaouki T. Abdallah, Kate Krause, Jorge Crichigno
2009 arXiv   pre-print
We present an incentive model for route distribution in the context of path vector routing protocols and we focus on the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP).  ...  the network, the neighbors do the same thing with their neighbors, and so on.  ...  Other economic models that assume the network is a market with elastic demand (based on d's utility) and that determine prices based on demand and supply, are interesting to investigate.  ...

N. Semret, R.R.-F. Liao, A.T. Campbell, A.A. Lazar
2000 IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications  
These analytical results are validated with simulations of user and broker dynamics, using the distributed progressive second price auction as the spot market mechanism in a scenario with three interconnected  ...  demand-driven dynamic allocations are made only at the edges.  ...  Valuation Function In Section III, we assumed a very general form (i.e., elastic demand) for a user's valuation.  ...

Optimisation of a TV White Space Broadband Market Model for Rural Entrepreneurs

Sindiso M Nleya, Antoine Bagula, Marco Zennaro, Ermmano Pietrosemoli
2014 Journal of ICT Standardization  
A performance evaluation of both models is comparatively performed with regards to parameters such as cost, generated revenue, profit, best response in price adjustments and channel quality.  ...  Leveraging on recent TV white space communications developments in regulations, standards initiatives and technology, this paper considers a suitable next generation network comprising of two primary users  ...  Consequently in accordance with the law of demand and supply in economics, the primary user sets a higher price.  ...

Incentive mechanisms for user-provided networks

George Iosifidis, Lin Gao, Jianwei Huang, Leandros Tassiulas
2014 IEEE Communications Magazine  
The increasing mobile data demand and the proliferation of advanced handheld devices place the user-provided networks (UPNs) at a conspicuous position in next-generation network architectures.  ...  Second, the recent technological developments have resulted in sophisticated user-owned equipment such as Wi-Fi access points (APs) and smartphones with enhanced-capabilities.  ...  As it is anticipated, the aggregate consumed data X i + Y i (Mbit) decreases with the price, since the demand of the users is considered elastic.  ...

The Impact of Incomplete Information on Games in Parallel Relay Networks [article]

Hongda Xiao, Edmund M. Yeh
2011 arXiv   pre-print
All nodes are selfish and strategic, interested in maximizing their own profit instead of the social welfare.  ...  We consider the impact of incomplete information on incentives for node cooperation in parallel relay networks with one source node, one destination node, and multiple relay nodes.  ...  Next, we investigated the game with incomplete information.  ...

A Framework to Quantify the Benefits of Network Functions Virtualization in Cellular Networks [article]

Zafar Ayyub Qazi, Vyas Sekar, Samir Das
2014 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we present an initial attempt at a framework that will help network operators systematically evaluate the potential benefits that different points in the NFV design space can offer.  ...  However, existing efforts in this space leave open broad issues about how NFV deployments should be instantiated or how they should be provisioned.  ...  First, in Eq (8) we ensure that the entire fraction of traffic is routed to the first hops.  ...

Sheng Di, Cho-Li Wang, Luwei Cheng, Ling Chen
2011 2011 International Conference on Cloud and Service Computing  
These resources are provisioned elastically according to user's specific demand, by leveraging virtual machine (VM) resource isolation technology.  ...  The key challenge of getting the win-win effect with social optimization is its provable NP-completeness.  ...  Moreover, by extending the traditional second-price bidding policy to a novel double-sided next-price bidding policy, our algorithm can induce both strategic resource consumers and contributors to truthfully  ...
