Future communication networks will be faced with increasing and variable traffic demand, due largely to various services introduced on the Internet. One particular service that will greatly impact resource management of future communication networks is IPTV, which aims to provide users with a multitude of multimedia services (e.g. HD and SD) for both live and on demand streaming. The impact of this will be higher, when we consider multiple IPTV services overlaid on the same network. In this paper we propose a resource management scheme for a network provider that supports multiple IPTV providers. The proposed solution incorporates a new distributed routing mechanism in the underlying network that incorporates QoE monitoring. Through this monitoring process, network providers are able to provide timely updates of quality of flows for each IPTV provider. Simulation work has been conducted to validate the efficiency of the proposed solution in comparison to standard approaches.
