1 is a block diagram illustrating a system for managing QoS in a wired / wireless communication network according to an embodiment of the present invention.

Referring to FIG. 1, the Quality of Service (QoS) management system of the present embodiment includes an agent management apparatus 100, one or more agent terminals 102, 104, and 106, and a database (Database, 108).

The QoS management system manages the QoS of the agent terminals 102, 104, and 106 using the agent management apparatus 100 to improve the efficiency of the system while improving the QoS of each agent terminal 102, 104, and 106. To ensure. For example, while a first user in a particular area surfs the Internet a lot, the second user may download a file such as a movie. In this case, the QoS management system sets the QoS of the agent terminal of the first user to enable fast web surfing to the first user, and gives a wide bandwidth to the agent terminal of the second user. That is, the QoS management system manages the setting of the agent terminal so that QoS is guaranteed for each user. However, the guarantee of such QoS is set in consideration of the resources of the entire system. Detailed description thereof will be described below with reference to the accompanying drawings.

The agent management apparatus 100 includes an agent manager 110 that manages agent terminals 102, 104, and 106 in a specific area. In detail, the agent management apparatus 100 determines the QoS status of the agent terminals 102, 104, and 106 used by the users, and the agent terminals 102, 104, 106 according to the identified QoS status. Provide the appropriate QoS policy. Here, the QoS policy is set in accordance with the preferences and requirements of the user while considering the resources of the entire system.

Each of the agent terminals 102, 104, and 106 is an information processing apparatus that can be used by a specific user, such as a personal computer. An agent unit (wired or wirelessly connected to the agent manager 110), as shown in FIG. 112, 114, and 116). Here, the agent units 112, 114, and 116 have an agent program, and communicate with the agent management apparatus 100 through the agent program. This agent program may be provided to the agent terminals 102, 104, and 106 from the agent management apparatus 100, or may be purchased and used as a separate software program.

The agent units 112, 114, and 116 detect QoS of services executed in the corresponding agent terminal, and transmit the QoS information that is the detection result to the agent manager 110. Thereafter, the agent units 112, 114, and 116 change the QoS of the corresponding agent terminal in accordance with the QoS policy provided from the agent manager 110 to conform to the QoS policy. Here, since the QoS policy is set to guarantee the QoS of each agent terminal 102, 104, and 106, the agent terminals 102, 104, and 106 operate according to the preferences and requirements desired by the user.

The agent terminals 102, 104, and 106 are entirely managed by the agent management apparatus 100, but are directly connected to the communication network without passing through the agent management apparatus 100 to receive a specific service. That is, when a user attempts to download specific data using a specific agent terminal, the agent management apparatus 100 sets the bandwidth of the agent terminal and the like, but the data is not transmitted through the agent management apparatus 100 but the wired / wireless communication network. Download from the data server (not shown) through. Of course, in another embodiment of the present invention, the agent terminals 102, 104, and 106 may operate under the control of the agent management apparatus 100, whatever the operation.

Database 108 stores information about users, that is, information about agent terminals 102, 104, and 106. The agent management apparatus 100 uses user information stored in the database 108, in particular, login information and a previously set QoS policy, when setting a QoS policy for a specific agent terminal.

For example, when the user sets a QoS condition that the user wants to set for his terminal and stores it in the database 108, the agent terminal device 100 extracts the information set by the user from the database 108, QoS policy is established based on the extracted information. Thereafter, the agent terminal device 100 transmits the established QoS policy to the corresponding agent terminal. As a result, the user can be guaranteed QoS in his or her desired state. That is, user-customized QoS can be guaranteed.

As another example, when information on a service frequently used by a user has been stored in the database 108, the agent terminal device 100 receives the information from the database 108 to provide a QoS for the services currently used by the user. Establish a policy. Even in this case, since a QoS policy suitable for the user's usual preference is established, the user can be guaranteed the desired QoS.

In short, the agent management apparatus 100 manages the agent terminals 102, 104, and 106 so that the QoS suitable for the user's preferences and requirements is set for each user while efficiently operating the entire resource of the system. When the agent management apparatus 100 manages the agent terminals 102, 104, and 106 as described above, not only user-customized QoS but also data congestion may be prevented.

For example, when data congestion occurs in a specific agent terminal, the content thereof is transmitted to the agent management apparatus 100 through QoS information. In this case, the agent management apparatus 100 detects that data congestion has occurred in the agent terminal through the QoS information, and sets a QoS policy for blocking the bandwidth of the corresponding port to the agent terminal to prevent the data congestion. to provide. Accordingly, the agent terminal blocks the port according to the QoS policy, and as a result, the data congestion phenomenon can be prevented.

In FIG. 1, the database 108 is illustrated as a separate device from the agent management apparatus 110, but the database 108 may be part of the agent management apparatus 100.

Hereinafter, components of such a QoS management system will be described in detail with reference to the accompanying drawings. However, hereinafter, the first agent terminal 102 will be described in detail as a representative of the agent terminals 102, 104, and 106.

2 is a block diagram showing an agent terminal according to an embodiment of the present invention, Figure 3 is a block diagram showing an agent management apparatus according to an embodiment of the present invention.

Referring to FIG. 2, the agent unit 112 included in the agent terminal 102 of the present embodiment includes a first control unit 200, an authentication unit 202, a QoS information unit 204, a QoS application unit 206, and transmission / reception. Section 208.

The authentication unit 202 serves to register the agent terminal 102 with the agent management apparatus 100. For example, when the agent terminal 102 is powered on, authentication is automatically performed by the agent management apparatus 100. Or request manually. Here, when the agent terminal 102 is found to be a terminal in its management area, the agent management apparatus 100 transmits an authentication completion message to the agent terminal 102 and then begins to manage the QoS of the agent terminal 102. do.

The QoS information unit 204 collects QoS information of the agent terminal 102, and includes an application service information collection unit 210 and a QoS information collection unit 212.

The application service information collection unit 210 collects information on a list and types of application services using a network among application services executed in the agent terminal 102. In general, when using a computer, people use many services at the same time using a network, such as a search using a portal site, a messenger, or a material download, and the application service information collecting unit 210 collects information on all the services used in this way. do. In addition, the application service information collection unit 210 transmits the collected application service information to the agent management apparatus 100 through the transceiver 208.

The QoS information collecting unit 212 collects QoS information for each application service based on the application service information collected by the application service information collecting unit 210. According to an embodiment of the present invention, the QoS information is IP (IP) of the agent terminal 112, the application service running in the agent terminal 112, resource usage for each application service, destination address, average bit rate and burst Include the rate. In addition, the QoS information collecting unit 212 transmits the collected QoS information to the agent management apparatus 100 through the transceiver unit 208.

The QoS applicator 206 manages the entire QoS of the agent terminal 102 through the QoS policy transmitted from the agent management apparatus 100, and includes a QoS policy manager 214 and a QoS controller 216.

The QoS policy management unit 214 receives a QoS policy from the agent management apparatus 100 and monitors whether an application service is running in accordance with the QoS policy in response to the received QoS policy.

The QoS controller 216 controls the QoS of the agent terminal 102 according to the monitoring result of the QoS policy manager 214. For example, if the monitoring results that the application service currently running on the agent terminal 102 deviates from the QoS policy, the QoS control unit 216 may cause the application terminal deviating from the QoS policy to conform to the QoS control. ) QoS is changed. Of course, when all the application services running on the agent terminal 102 operate in accordance with the QoS policy, the QoS control unit 216 keeps the agent terminal 102 in its current state.

The transceiver 208 serves as a connection path between the agent terminal 102 and the agent management apparatus 100.

The first control unit 200 controls the overall operation of the agent terminal 102.

Hereinafter, the agent manager 110 of the agent manager 100 will be described in detail.

Referring to FIG. 3, the agent manager 110 included in the agent manager 100 according to the present embodiment includes a second controller 300, an authentication manager 302, an agent information manager 304, and a QoS policy manager 306. And a transceiver 308.

When the authentication management unit 302 receives the authentication request transmitted from the agent terminal 102, the authentication manager 302 determines whether the agent terminal 102 is a registered terminal, and, in the case of a registered terminal, an authentication completion message. The agent manager 110 then starts managing the QoS of the agent terminal 102 from that time when the authentication is completed as described above.

The agent information manager 304 manages the application service information and the QoS information transmitted from the agent terminals 102, 104, and 106 for each agent terminal 102, 104, and 106, and the application service information manager 310 and the QoS information. The management unit 312 is included.

The application service information management unit 310 receives application service information transmitted from the application service information collection unit 210 and manages the application service information by classifying the agent terminals 102, 104, and 106.

The QoS information manager 312 receives the QoS information transmitted from the QoS information collector 212 and manages the received QoS information for each of the agent terminals 102, 104, and 106. In addition, the QoS information manager 312 provides the QoS information to the QoS policy manager 306.

The QoS policy management unit 306 establishes a QoS policy suitable for the agent terminal 102 according to, for example, the QoS information of the agent terminal 102, and includes a QoS policy setting unit 314 and a QoS policy applying unit 316. It includes.

The QoS policy setting unit 314 requests and receives login information of the corresponding agent terminal 102 and a previously set QoS policy from the database 108 according to the QoS information transmitted from the QoS information management unit 312.

When the agent terminal 102 has previously logged in, the QoS policy setting unit 314 receives the previously set QoS policy from the database 108 and transmits the QoS policy to the QoS policy applying unit 316. Of course, even in this case, the agent terminal 102 may ignore the existing QoS policy and set a new QoS policy according to the received QoS information.

If the agent terminal 102 has never logged in before, the QoS policy setting unit 314 sets a new QoS policy according to the QoS information, and transmits the set QoS policy to the QoS policy applying unit 316.

The QoS policy applying unit 316 transmits the QoS policy transmitted from the QoS policy setting unit 314 to the agent terminal 102 through the transceiver unit 308. In addition, the QoS policy applying unit 316 may transmit the newly changed QoS policy to the agent terminal 102 when the QoS policy is changed.

The transceiver 308 serves as a connection path between the agent manager 110 and the agent terminals 102, 104, and 106.

The second controller 300 generally controls the operation of the agent manager 110.

Although the above description has been made using only the agent terminal 102 as an example, the same process above applies to all the agent terminals 102, 104, and 106.

Hereinafter, operations between the agent management apparatus 100 having such components and the agent terminals 102, 104, and 106 will be described in detail.

4 is a flowchart illustrating a QoS management method according to an embodiment of the present invention. However, hereinafter, the first agent terminal 102 will be described in detail as a representative of the agent terminals 102, 104, and 106.

Referring to FIG. 4, when the agent terminal 102 requests authentication from the agent management apparatus 100 and receives an authentication completion message from the agent management apparatus 100 (S400). In general, this authentication process is performed when the agent terminal 102 is powered on.

Subsequently, the application service information collecting unit 210 collects information on application services currently executed in the agent terminal 102 (S402).

Subsequently, the QoS information collecting unit 212 collects QoS information for each application service based on the collected information about the application services (S404), and transmits the collected QoS information to the agent management apparatus 100. .

Thereafter, the agent information manager 304 stores and manages the transmitted QoS information (S406).

Subsequently, the QoS policy manager 306 sets a QoS policy based on the QoS information (S408). For example, if a user executes Internet search, music file download, messenger, etc. through the agent terminal 102 and usually downloads music files, QoS is allocated to allocate more bandwidth for file download than other services. Set the policy. Of course, if the user wants to perform the current search even though the user mainly downloaded the information, this information is included in the QoS information and transmitted to the agent management apparatus 100, so that the QoS policy management unit 306 may apply to the QoS information. Accordingly, QoS policy is set to allocate more bandwidth than usual to the search service. However, since there are many agent terminals 102, 104, and 106 in the system, the QoS policy is applied to the needs of the user in consideration of the overall needs of the agent terminals 102, 104, and 106 and the system-wide resources. Set the appropriate QoS policy.

Subsequently, the QoS policy manager 214 of the agent terminal 102 monitors the QoS of the agent terminal 102 according to the set QoS policy (S410).

Thereafter, the QoS control unit 216 performs QoS control on the agent terminal 102 according to the monitoring result. That is, the QoS control unit 216 changes the QoS setting of the application service when the specific application service does not comply with the QoS policy.

In short, the QoS management method and system for performing the same of the present invention manage QoS for each of the agent terminals 102, 104, and 106, i.e., guarantee customized QoS. Of course, the system manages all of the agent terminals 102, 104 and 106, thus limiting the QoS of a particular agent terminal for a particular service and ensuring the QoS of other agent terminals. That is, the system guarantees the maximum QoS for each user while considering the QoS of the entire network.
