The explosive growth of new multimedia services over the Internet necessitates efficient network management. Improved network management systems are expected to simultaneously provide diverse multimedia traffic services and enhance network performance. In this paper, we propose a new online network management algorithm that implements adaptation, reservation, and call-admission strategies. Our online approach to network management exhibits dynamic adaptability, flexibility, and responsiveness to the current traffic conditions in multimedia networks.
