Policy-based Management, Quality of Service, Roles, Service and Network Management.


This paper focuses on policies for quality of service management in IP networks. More precisely, we address the application of policy-based management for network and service management systems, where other works mainly focus on the management system to router communication. In this environment, we propose a policy plane, which controls and manages the policies that have to be enforced using a QoS management system. Furthermore, we have implemented some service and network-level policies, which control a QoS management system instead of the network elements themselves.
