In this paper, we introduce bandwidth broker algorithm for maximizing the revenue in the multinode network sched uler. The proposed algorithm ensures more bandwidth for the users paying more for the connection (i.e. higher ser vice class) than those paying less. The algorithm is fast to realize, and thus being practical to implement. It is con verging typically in few iterations for given number of con nections, and it is robust against erroneous estimates of cus tomers’ behavior.
