Paper Abstract

The recent deployment of broadband networks that accommodate applications with diverse quality of service requirements presents new challenges to the pricing services. Pricing can and should be used to influence customers to chose services that fit their application needs, maximizing the statistical multiplexing capability of the network. This paper presents a framework for studying the issues involved in pricing for multiple-service networks. Our results illustrate how we can affect customers' choices by charging according to the amount of resources that are allocated to a connection.
