Deployment and Management of Multimedia Contents Distribution Networks Using an Autonomous Agent Service

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 240)


This paper introduces an agent application service and shows its application through the implementation of a multimedia data distribution service. This service is broadly comprised of agents, agent systems, an agent master and agent manager components. A software component of relaying multimedia date traffic is developed as an agent application, and is created dynamically with the distribution of the content client in the network. By using this service, it is possible to deploy a new multimedia data distribution with greater speed, efficiency and convenience.
