The telephone providers supports national as well as international
calls. While in the national case a proprietary network can be used to
satisfy the entire demand, the international calls must be, whole or
partially, satisfied with other carriers.

Each carrier provides a complete price list for every destination
reached, completed with the declared Quality of Service (QoS). For
some estinations, the carrier can details these information for some locale

The cost is represented as a cost per minute plus a cost per call;
while the QoS is represented with a real number ranging from 0 and 1:
0 is the lowest quality and 1 is the highest quality. The destinations
are identified with the international code eventually completed with
the area code when needed.

The above information can be used to estimate cost and quality of
offered service, but these are not sufficient for a complete calculus.
An estimation or historical data on distribution calls must be used to
have a well done service cost and quality calculation, being for each
destination the number of calls and the total minutes of traffic

A generic telephone provider has the problem to schedule the best way
to route the outgoing calls, selecting for each destination a
preferred carrier.
