This paper addresses the impact of Quality of Service on resource requirements in networks that implement exclusive bandwidth allocation, such as IntServ. The paper proposes a framework for pricing flows based on the impact of their reservations on the resources for which the network must be provisioned. The developed framework is analytical and is based on the economies associated with aggregating vs. segregating exclusive bandwidths that cater to customers demanding a specified Quality of Service.
