COMPONENT BASED METHODOLOGY FOR QOS-AWARE NETWORK DESIGN

Cedric Teyssié, David Espès, Zoubir Mammeri

Abstract

New services (such as VoIP) and their quality requirements have dramatically increased the complexity of the underlying networks. Quality of Service support is a challenge for next generation networks. Design methods and modeling languages can help reduce the complexity of the integration of QoS. UML is successfully used in several domains. In this paper, we propose a QoS component oriented methodology based on UML. This methodology reduces network-design complexity by separating design considerations into functional and non-functional parts. It also provides a design cycle and proposes abstraction means where QoS is integrated. As UML is not adapted for modeling non-functional elements, we combine UML strengths and a QoS specification language (QSL).
