Design and Implementation of an Economically-driven Network Management Mechanisms for Overlay Networks

State: completed by Martin Hochstrasser

This work will investigate, design, and implement Economic Traffic Management (ETM) mechanisms for overlay networks and systems. The thesis has to define, describe, and implement appropriate mechanisms in a to be selected platform, which need to be viable and valid w.r.t. technical as well as economic concerns and efficiency/scalability dimensions.
An example scenario is a peer-to-peer multicast application for video distribution. Although the application has the ability of better using network resources by establishing connections directly to other peers, an optimal way of building the overlay, taking the underlay topology into consideration, is still an open question.
