Access to multimedia services over heterogeneous networks and terminals is of increasing market interest, while providing end-to-end quality of service (QoS) guarantees in multi-domain environment is still a challenge. This paper describes a service oriented monitoring system designed for use in multi-domain heterogeneous networking environment for the purpose of supporting cross-network audiovisual service offering. The presented monitoring system is that developed in the IST ENTHRONE II project for providing monitoring information to (1) service providers for providing quantified QoS-based services and its dynamic adaptation; (2) network operators for making provisioning decisions and allowing dynamic resource allocation for optimizing the usage of network resources.
