A control-plane architecture for supporting advance reservation of dedicated bandwidth channels on a switched network infrastructure is described including the front-end web interface, user and token management scheme, bandwidth scheduler, and signaling daemon. A path computation algorithm for bandwidth scheduling is proposed based on an extension of Bellman-Ford algorithm to an algebraic structure on sequences of disjoint non-negative real intervals. An implementation of this architecture for UltraScience Net is briefly described.
