Abstract

This document describes mappings of IETF Integrated Services over LANs built from IEEE 802 network segments which may be interconnected by IEEE 802.1D MAC Bridges (switches). It describes parameter mappings for supporting Controlled Load and Guaranteed Service using the inherent capabilities of relevant IEEE 802 technologies and, in particular, 802.1D-1998 queuing features in switches.

Abstract

This document describes mappings of IETF Integrated Services over

LANs built from IEEE 802 network segments which may be interconnected

by IEEE 802.1D MAC Bridges (switches). It describes parameter

mappings for supporting Controlled Load and Guaranteed Service using

the inherent capabilities of relevant IEEE 802 technologies and, in

particular, 802.1D-1998 queuing features in switches.

These mappings are one component of the Integrated Services over IEEE

802 LANs framework.
