Abstract

This memo describes a framework for supporting IETF Integrated Services on shared and switched LAN infrastructure. It includes background material on the capabilities of IEEE 802 like networks with regard to parameters that affect Integrated Services such as access latency, delay variation and queuing support in LAN switches. It discusses aspects of IETF's Integrated Services model that cannot easily be accommodated in different LAN environments. It outlines a functional model for supporting the Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP) in such LAN environments. Details of extensions to RSVP for use over LANs are described in an accompanying memo [14]. Mappings of the various Integrated Services onto IEEE 802 LANs are described in another memo [13].
