Summary: Abstract---In this paper, we present a theoretical framework
and a distributed mechanism for fair bandwidth allocation on a
network with various bottleneck links. In our model, a user is
guaranteed a minimum bandwidth and charged a price for a
bandwidth capacity request. We defined a utility function that
reflects user's bandwidth demand when the user requests the
bandwidth capacity. We then present a non­cooperative game
with social welfare function to resolve users' conflicting
bandwidth capacity requests at bottleneck links. We also show
that our proposed game­theoretic solution guarantees fair
bandwidth allocation as defined in our residual capacity fairness.
In order to guarantee the minimum bandwidth requirement, we
integrate an admission control in our solution. However, global
optimal admission conditions are not easy to implement for large
networks. We therefore propose a distributed admission scheme.
As a result, the paper presents fair and practical distributed
algorithms for bandwidth allocation and admission control in
enterprise networks. Our simulation and evaluation study show
that the distributed approach is sufficiently close to the global
optimal solution.
