Reliability of Agents' Integration in Telecommunication Networks

Abstract : Multi-agent Systems (MAS), which are composed of multiple intelligent agents have been used for a long time to solve problems related to online trading, disaster response, modeling social structures, and others. Recently, MAS have found its way into networking and telecommunication networks. This paper presents a number of tests that show the improvements gained in the performance of a Diffserv network after integrating a multi-agent system. The suggested DiffServ technique adopts the standard lowest metric routing path along with an agent's behavior able to help the different routers in finding and using other possible routes than the default one, even if the cost of these new paths is higher. The adopted network, based on an extension to the J-Sim simulation environment, is used to support integration of agents and multi-agent systems within a telecommunication network. Simulation shows that agents, especially cooperative agents, are able to increase the performance of a telecommunication network.
