This paper deals with the problem of resource management in Multi-Access Networks. A Reinforcement Learning based hierarchical control strategy is presented. The main contribution of the proposed approach is its capability of simultaneously tacking the load balancing and QoS management problems in a scalable, dynamic and closed-loop way. The effectiveness of the proposed solution has been proved in a specific case study in the context of which the performances of the proposed algorithm have been compared with a standard load balancing controller.
