In this paper we present our approach to cope with platforms' heterogeneity of the home network. Traditional resource reservation policies, based on a mapping table, associate one Quantity of Resource (QoR) to one platform resulting in large table size. To reduce this size, we propose to use aggregated mapping tables to associate one aggregated QoR to several platforms. This reduction facilitates resources management for multimedia applications in home networks. This paper presents the aggregation algorithm which automatically builds aggregated mapping tables, with input criteria given by content providers. The algorithm uses clustering coupled with domain knowledge. It is evaluated with randomly generated mapping tables.
