The Utility Argument – Making a Case for Broadband SLAs [chapter]

Zachary S. Bischof, Fabián E. Bustamante, Rade Stanojevic
2017 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we study the design space of broadband SLAs and explore some of the trade-offs between the level of strictness of SLAs and the cost of delivering them.  ...  Though such promises are often met, they are fairly limited in scope and, unfortunately, there is no basis for an appeal if a customer were to receive compromised quality of service.  ...  Acknowledgments We thank our shepherd Monia Ghobadi and the anonymous reviewers for their invaluable feedback.  ...

On the state and guiding principles of broadband in India

A. Gumaste, P. Gokhale, A. Dhar
2009 IEEE Communications Magazine  
On the contrary, a flat rate pricing model will spur demand for Internet services and enable content providers to target the local and emerging market.  ...  We study the Indian telecommunication scenario from a pricing and technology perspective and understand what the driving forces are for business to prosper.  ...  No study is available on the total penalty that has been levied on providers for not meeting broadband SLAs, though it is commonly known that broadband SLAs are not honored from an availability and reliability  ...

Bridging the gap

Jay A. Patel, Indranil Gupta
2006 ACM SIGOPS Operating Systems Review  
Finally, we show the feasibility of this direction by experimentally quantifying the advantages of a simple proof of concept P2P-izer solution for website hosting.  ...  We propose a new class of systems called "P2P-izers", which incentivize existing centralized infrastructures to utilize p2p solutions.  ...  Figure 4 shows the bandwidth utilized for the base case (HTTP protocol with surplus available bandwidth), and with the P2P-izer (with resource constraints as prescribed by the first scenario).  ...

A study of pricing for cloud resources

Hong Xu, Baochun Li
2013 Performance Evaluation Review  
We prove that throttling achieves the maximum revenue at the expense of tenant surplus, while providing performance guarantees with an extra fee is a fairer solution for both parties.  ...  We reveal another interesting insight that in some cases, instead of focusing on right-sizing, the provider should work on the demand and revenue side of the equation, and pricing is a more feasible and  ...  In this case, the provider explicitly guarantees the resources allocated to a tenant (i.e., no throttling) at all times, and charges an additional usage independent premium q for the SLA.  ...

Service-Aware Multi-Resource Allocation in Software-Defined Next Generation Cellular Networks

Omer Narmanlioglu, Engin Zeydan, Suayb S. Arslan
2018 IEEE Access  
In this paper, we consider a joint resource allocation strategy that weights the significance of the resources per a given NS by leveraging the correlation structure of different quality-of-service (QoS  ...  Performance of the proposed schedulers are then investigated through Monte-Carlo simulations and compared with each other as well as against a traditional max-min fairness algorithm benchmark.  ...  use case of AR should give another guaranteed SLA for a given UE set of MNO-k [33] .  ...
