Network resource management is a crucial issue in multimedia communications. In the present paper, we make use of the framework of the ReSerVation Protocol (RSVP) to devise and implement a network resource management mechanism, which control end-to-end packet delays and bandwidth allocation for the designed Multimedia Instruction on Demand (MID) System. In our design, the MID server and MID gateway consist of the following mechanisms, namely, resource management agent, admission control agent, packet classifier, and packet scheduler. The integration of the above mechanisms enables us to provide the required bandwidth for real-time continuous media on a multi- accesses environment. Our contributions are as follows: (1) a network resource management scheme is designed to support real- time multimedia over the Internet and (2) an experimental test bed is established to measure the system performance. The developed scheme is currently being implemented in the Multimedia Information NEtworking (MINE) laboratory at Tamkang University.
