Abstract

This document describes a signaling method and protocol for RSVP- based admission control over IEEE 802-style LANs. The protocol is designed to work both with the current generation of IEEE 802 LANs as well as with the recent work completed by the IEEE 802.1 committee.

designed to work both with the current generation of IEEE 802 LANs as

well as with the recent work completed by the IEEE 802.1 committee.

1. Introduction

New extensions to the Internet architecture and service models have

been defined for an integrated services Internet [RFC-1633, RFC-2205,

RFC-2210] so that applications can request specific qualities or

levels of service from an internetwork in addition to the current IP

best-effort service. These extensions include RSVP, a resource

reservation setup protocol, and definition of new service classes to

be supported by Integrated Services routers. RSVP and service class

definitions are largely independent of the underlying networking

technologies and it is necessary to define the mapping of RSVP and

Integrated Services specifications onto specific subnetwork

technologies. For example, a definition of service mappings and

reservation setup protocols is needed for specific link-layer

technologies such as shared and switched IEEE-802-style LAN

technologies.
