Abstract

See full text

Methods and apparatus are provided for reserving resources in a wireline network from a wireless network. A resource reservation request is made by a service client to a service broker. The service broker contacts a bandwidth broker to determine the available resources in the wireline network. The service broker also contacts a geographical domain server for information related to wireless access for the requested reservation. Using information provided by the geographical domain server, the service broker contacts a radio bearer broker to determine the resources available in a particular wireless network. Based upon the information provided by bandwidth brokers and radio bearer brokers, the service client can reserve the requested resources.
