This paper describes an Agent-based InterNetworking Platform (AINP) which has a hierarchical infrastructure for internetworking with guaranteed Quality of Service in a high-speed network. The AINP system intelligently controls and manages the AINP network through network-oriented agents due to its policy which is periodically updated using the user/network-state information. In this approach, for implementing network-oriented agents and agent-based communications in intelligent AINP infrastructure, a Common Information Model is used which is the international standardization of object-oriented modeling. Extensible Markup Language is used for encapsulation and the HyperText Transfer Protocol is used for transference of user/network-state information. We concluded that the AINP was robust and suitable for an intelligent network management system in a high-speed network.
