USING ROUTING AGENTS FOR IMPROVING THE QUALITY OF SERVICE IN GENERAL PURPOSE NETWORKS

Mohammad Mottaghi, Masoud Daneshtalab

Abstract

In this paper, we have proposed a new routing method for general purpose networks. Each router in this model is a context-aware agent and therefore the whole network of routers forms a community (society) of context-aware agents which are ever learning and adapting the routing network. During routing each agent keeps learning and specializing in routing some specific traffic type (e.g. intermittent audio packets) and makes its neighboring routes optimum for this type of traffic whereas other agents are experts in other traffic types. All agents are aware from their colleagues' expertise and when a new traffic type enters the network all agents try to collaboratively recognize (or detect) its type and route it according to their past experience (which is already learned). If the traffic type is unknown to all agents, one of them tries to learn how to route it such that its QoS constraints are met better. The idea behind the proposed model is to temporarily modify some routes whenever QoS constraints cannot be met in the network. Simulation results show that the proposed model can improve QoS of the network by 12%.
