An SLA-driven framework for dynamic multimedia content delivery federations

J. Famaey, S. Latre, T. Wauters, F. De Turck
2012 2012 IEEE Network Operations and Management Symposium  
Recently, the Internet has become a popular platform for the delivery of multimedia content.  ...  However, its best effort delivery approach is ill-suited to guarantee the stringent Quality of Service (QoS) requirements of many existing multimedia services, which results in a significant reduction  ...  To alleviate this, Pouyllau and Douville proposed a heuristic based on game theory and Q-learning [6] .  ...
