Abstract

See full text

Exemplary embodiments relate to managing access resources in a network. Methods include receiving a request for network service, the request including a required class of service; accessing a storage device that specifies routers and bandwidth available on the routers; selecting a router from the specified routers and a port on the selected router to perform the requested service, the selecting including verifying that the bandwidth available on the selected router and port can perform the requested service, where the bandwidth is divided into a plurality of capacity classes and the bandwidth in each class can perform the requested service if the capacity class corresponds to the required class of service; transmitting instructions to a network configuration system to initiate activation of the requested service on the selected router and port; and updating the storage device to reflect the requested service being activated on the selected router and port.
