Monitoring and regulating the deployment of mobile agents to a network based on its available bandwidth is crucial to forestall the possibility of congestion and consequent network degradation. Our study has shown that only one experimental modelhas addressed the issue. Investigation into this model revealed its failure to honour some basic parameters necessary to yield efficient result. These parameters and network bandwidth determine the maximum deployable number of agents to a network. To achieve the set objective, a threshold-based controller is proposed to regulate the injection of mobile agents into the network relative to the available bandwidth, agent size and router traffic size. The result obtained shows that the proposed model is more accurate and reliable than the existing one.
