Abstract

This memo presents specific implementation requirements for running RSVP over ATM switched virtual circuits (SVCs). It presents requirements that ensure interoperability between multiple implementations and conformance to the RSVP and Integrated Services specifications. A separate document [5] provides specific guidelines for running over today’s ATM networks. The general problem is discussed in [9]. Integrated Services to ATM service mappings are covered in [6]. The full set of documents present the background and information needed to implement Integrated Services and RSVP over ATM.

1. Introduction

This memo discusses running IP over ATM in an environment where SVCs are used to support QoS flows and RSVP is used as the internet level QoS signaling protocol. It applies when using CLIP/ION, LANE2.0 and MPOA [4] methods for supporting IP over ATM. The general issues related to running RSVP [8] over ATM have been covered in several papers including [9] and other earlier work. This document is intended as a...
