Abstract

The purpose of this document is to specify the assignment of the information field and protocol identifier in the Q.2941 Generic Identifier and Q.2957 User-to-user Signaling for the Internet protocol.

The assignment, that is specified in section 4 of this document, is designed for advanced B-ISDN signaling support of the Internet protocol, especially the B-ISDN signaling support for the connection that corresponds to the session in the Internet protocol which is clarified in section 2. This specification provides an indispensable framework for the implementation of long-lived session and QoS- sensitive session transfers over ATM.

clarified in section 2. Needless to say, the purpose of this specification is not limited to this support, and it should also be applicable to other purposes.

This specification provides an indispensable framework for the implementation of long-lived session and QoS-sensitive session transfers over ATM. Note that this document only specifies the assignment of the information field and protocol identifier, and that it may not specify complete protocol that enables interoperable implementation. This is because it is beyond the scope of this document and will be specified in a separate document.

2. Session-related ATM Connection

With the development of new multimedia applications on the current Internet, the demands for multimedia support are increasing in the IP network, which currently supports best effort communications. In particular, demands to support QoS guaranteed communications are increasing with the development of voice, audio, and video communications applications. And it may also be necessary to introduce the mechanism that can efficiently transfer the huge volume of traffic...
