The fast Internet growth has led to high demands requiring QoS provisioning mechanism to be implemented in the future Internet. This paper presents the development and implementation of a resource reservation scheme to allocate and manage resource in the future internet. We propose a scalable efficient reservation protocol (SERP) to efficiently allocate and manage resources in the future Internet. SERP takes into consideration the fact that the future Internet will accommodate both real time and non real time applications. Relevant design goals and principles were identified and these led to a formulation of a corresponding model. Simulation of the model was conducted to evaluate the performance of the developed scheme. The experimental results do show that SERP reduces the router load with less states information to be maintained. Use of aggregate-based reservation further reduces states information. Consequently SERP improves scalability. Results further demonstrate that request acceptance probability is high and more connections are established for end-to-end reservation.
