Typical for the content on-demand applications, such as Video-on-Demand, IPTV, on-demand advertising, music on-demand, on-line gaming, is the requirement for large bandwidth and QoS guarantees. In order to provide efficiently content delivery on-demand within fixed/mobile broadband infrastructures, QoS management interfaces and tools are proposed, which are aimed at bandwidth planning and resource reservation in advance considering dynamic QoS/SLA agreements. This paper discusses strategies and tools for automated bandwidth planning of on-demand content delivery. Based on policies for handling of on-demand services with advance reservation, the Telecom providers can improve the usage of Internet resources and enhance the QoS provision.
