Ubiquitous convergence network consists of access networks to provide heterogeneous network services for mobile users. In this paper, we propose a hierarchical policy-based architecture model and the policy procedures based on access networks connected with Ubiquitous convergence networks. We also present a dynamic traffic management scheme which uses DiffServ mechanism and SLA for the management of end-to-end QoS in access networks. At the end of this paper, we will analyze the performance of the proposed schemes through computer simulation.
