Lele, AM and Nandy, SK and Epema, DHJ (2000) Design Space Exploration for Providing QoS Within the Harmony Framework. In: 2000 IEEE International Conference on Multimedia and Expo. ICME 2000, 30 July-2 August, New York,USA, Vol.1, 521 -524.
The HARMONY architecture  provides mechanisms for management of network and compute resources in a mobile computing environment. In HARMONY network resources are reserved based on the Entropy Model , and compute guarantees are provided by off-loading tasks from the mobile units to compute servers in the backbone network. A load-balancing scheme redistributes loads across all compute servers so that these are equally loaded. This paper carries out a design space exploration of the HARMONY architecture to determine parameter bounds within which quality of service can be provided.
