In this work we investigate an architecture for resource provisioning and route selection over multiple disparate networks. We have developed a layered hierarchy of internetworking and intranetworking levels of management called a MetaNet. Management at the internetwork level is conducted in a manner that models each network abstractly. At the intranetwork level management accounts for the detailed implementation and organizational characteristics of each network. The paper explores how to employ these layers to cooperatively satisfy end-to-end requests for connectivity with an associated QoS. In addition, we explore negotiation between the inter- and intranetwork levels of management and brokering of QoS by the internetwork level among the intranetwork level managers.
