INTERMON – High Quality QoS-Monitoring
Quality parameters of different ISP domains are visualised and via simulation optimised.
This project started at the beginning of 2002. It is an IST project and a successor to AQUILA. Research focuses on open questions regarding architecture and a prototype-level implementation of inter-domain QoS monitoring.
The main benefit of INTERMON is that it enables the verifiable exchange of QoS values from network provider to network provider as well as to content provider. This information enables macroscopic routing (which provider does provide what QoS for which sub-network?), accounting, and billing.
