MPLS DiffServ-TE presents the solution awaited so much by the network service providers by allowing a differentiation of services and a traffic engineering based on a fast packet switching technology. However, the management of such a network is not a simple function and could not be done manually. In this paper, we propose a novel architecture based on the Multi-Agent Systems (MAS) capable of managing automatically MPLS DiffServ-TE domains. Based on the network states, our intelligent agents take the appropriate decisions. They, for example, reconfigure the network accordingly.
