Abstract
A lot of work has been done to develop security and QoS techniques for IP networks. However, existing work doesn't provide a complete solution for addressing security and end-to-end QoS provisioning for multimedia flows traversing heterogeneous networks. Thus, there is a need for a system that can provide end-to-end guarantees to flows in IP networks consisting of wireline and wireless links. The system must accomplish its objectives without modification to existing military and commercial networks. Such a system will be relevant to military and civilian applications. Leveraging extensive experience in network technology and security, Architecture Technology Corp (ATC) will develop a system that provides security and end-to-end QoS to multimedia flows in heterogeneous networks. The system will utilize existing networks' infrastructures and protocols to achieve security and end-to-end QoS for multimedia flows. As a result, the system can be easily incorporated within current military and commercial networks.
