According to traffic predictions, the growth in data networks usage will be increasing in the coming years, what will be especially visible in the mobile access networks. This brings new challenges in terms of traffic differentiation and network resource sharing, which need to be faced by wireless technologies, such as Long Term Evolution (LTE).
This paper proposes usage of a modified Flow Aware Networking (FAN) technique for enhancing Quality of Service (QoS) in the all-IP transport networks underlying LTE backbone. The results obtained with OPNET Modeler show that FAN, in spite of being relatively simple, provides good protection against congestion and decreases the need of over-provisioning.
