Projects about Pricing and Charging

  • INternet Demand EXperiment (INDEX )
  • This project is a market trial for measuring the willingness of users to pay for different QoS. Its long-term objectives are to identify the key parameters for user perception of service quality, quantify the correlation between application type and service demand, and measure the economic value that individual users place on distinct activities and network resource levels

  • Market-Managed Multi-Services Internet ( M3I )
  • The goal of this project is to design, implement and trial a next generation system which will enable Internet resource management through market forces, specifically by enabling differential charging for multiple levels of service.

  • Charging and Accounting for the Internet ( CATI )
The project CATI consists of two subprojects, one focues on Internet protocols to support charging and accounting for existing and future Internet services, and another one that demonstrates these technolgies with real-world applications.
