The current trend toward the utilization of the Internet as a common means for the offer of heterogeneous services imposes to address the issues related to end-to-end service assurance in the inter-domain scenario. In this paper, we first present an architecture for service management in networks based on service level specifications (SLS). The architecture is designed to be independent both of the specific network technology adopted and of the high level service semantics. Then, we focus on a specific functionality of the proposed architecture: Resource allocation in the multi-domain scenario. A distributed admission control algorithm is introduced, its complexity is evaluated and a comparison with related solutions is provided.
