Abstract
In the Internet there is an ever growing demand for multimedia services. These services include video on demand, video conferencing and online gaming and require significant bandwidth and/or low delay from the network. The task of providing the QoS for these services is not fulfilled yet by the current infrastructure. Although the resources are often available, their usage is usually suboptimal, due to the use of IP shortest path routing within and between different autonomous systems. Here we will describe a solution to the problem by building an overlay network; giving us the opportunity to make optimal use of the resources available in the Internet. We will discuss an optimal server placement algorithm that determines the topology of an overlay network that is able to deliver QoS. The performance of the algorithm will be studied in terms of number of servers needed and number of connections accepted.
