Abstract

See full text

A method and system of an embodiment may include a method, comprising receiving, at a computing device, network bandwidth information for a network, receiving, at a computing device, a request for network bandwidth, identifying, at a computing device, one or more portions of network bandwidth to fulfill the request. The method may include provisioning the one or more identified portions of unallocated network bandwidth for the request. The identification may comprise utilizing the network bandwidth information to identify one or more portions of unallocated network bandwidth with sufficient capacity for the request, and determining which of the one or more portions of unallocated network bandwidth will result in less fragmentation of remaining unallocated network bandwidth.
