Abstract

This memo contains a revised specification of the Internet STream Protocol Version 2 (ST2). ST2 is an experimental resource reservation protocol intended to provide end-to-end real-time guarantees over an internet. It allows applications to build multi-destination simplex data streams with a desired quality of service. The revised version of ST2 specified in this memo is called ST2+.
