This work presents a traffic characterization procedure for traffic engineering (TE) in converged networks. An analytical model, focused in a self-similar aggregated traffic characterization is proposed, which considers QoS restrictions for delay metrics. The model, together with evolutionary techniques, is used for the optimization of the link capacity assignment task in network planning with multi-service applications. The results show that the traffic characterization model is reliable as a part of the optimization of costs in converged networks.
