Pilotage dynamique de la qualité de service de bout en bout pour une session "user-centric"

Abstract : Nowadays, the services market has become increasingly competitive. Customer requirements for service offerings in line with their uses and preferences led providers to offer new services to meet this new need and to stand out from competitors and attract new customers. With the success of the network and service convergence (NGN / NGS), new services have emerged. A mobile user desires to access his services anywhere, anytime and on any type of terminal.Thus, providing customized services to clients while ensuring the service continuity and the end-to-end quality of service in a heterogeneous and mobile environment became a challenge for mobile operators and service providers to improve the return on investment (ROI) and time-to-market (TTM). Our thinking about the provision of customized services according to the functional and non-functional (QoS) needs of the users has led us to identify the needs of the new context NGN / NGS defined by the intersection of these three elements "user-centric, mobility and QoS". How to dynamically control the end-to-end QoS for a single "user-centric" session? How to ensure the "Service Delivery" in the context of mobility and ubiquity? These new needs have led us to propose solutions through three main contributions that take into account the user and the operator vision. Our first contribution concerns the organizational model. We have proposed a new organization with a maximum of flexibility, adaptability and self-management which allows the control of the QoS at each level of the architecture (equipment, network and service). In this organization, we have defined actors and the role of each one in relation to the decision-making process during the user session in order to maintain the end-to-end QoS in an environment that is totally heterogeneous and mobile. Our second contribution addresses the autonomic service component. With the complexity of services personalization in a heterogeneous and mobile context and the need to satisfy the end to end QoS, services and network resources must be taken into account. Therefore, a high degree of self-sufficiency, self-management and automation is required in the resource service to improve the service delivery. We have therefore proposed an autonomic service component based on an integrated QoS-agent which is self-controlled and self-managed to dynamically adapt its resources in response to changing situations during the user's session. Our third proposal covers the model protocol. The personalized services session requires more flexible interactions at the service level in order to obtain a single session with service continuity. We have proposed a signalling protocol SIP + that allows the negotiation of the QoS of personalized services at the session initialization phase and the renegotiation of the QoS during the utilization to maintain the service with the required QoS through a unique session. More concretely, we have presented our experiments through a scenario and demonstration platform that allows us to test the feasibility and the performance of our contributions. The contributions and perspectives of this thesis are stated in the conclusion.
