With QoS available on IP-dominant NGNs, Policy-based Network Management (PBNM) is an effective mechanism for managing services as opposed to actual devices. IP is ubiquitous, and any NGN must contend with legacy devices that do not support emerging PBNM protocols. This Work in Progress uses the common Internet notion of a proxy to enforce policies on legacy equipment. We use VoIP as a mechanism to test the validity of our intended solution.
