The work presented here attempts to face the problem of bandwidth management in IP networks, especially in cases where the available resources have to be shared among many users with demanding and conflicting needs. We have designed a Managed Bandwidth Service (MBS) that allows users to make bandwidth reservations throughout the topology of the network infrastructure to which they have access based on the establishment of Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) using the Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) technology. In this paper we present the MBS developed along with our on-going and future work on the subject.
