Description:

Resource allocation problems are concerned with the allocation of limited resources among competing activities so as to achieve the best overall performances of the system but providing fair treatment of all the competitors. Telecommunication networks are facing the increasing demand for Internet services. Therefore, a problem of network dimensioning with elastic traffic arises which requires to allocate bandwidth to maximize service flows with fair treatment of all the services. In such applications, the so-called max-min fairness (MMF) solution concept is widely used to formulate the resource allocation scheme. This guarantees the fairness but may lead to significant losses in the overall throughput of the network. In this paper we show how multiple criteria optimization concepts can be used to generate various fair resource allocation schemes. The solution concepts are tested on the network dimensioning problem and their abilities to model various preferences are demonstrated.
