Abstract: We describe some implications of providing quality of service by using Integrated Services and RSVP. We then present an architecture where clients can make resource reservations in the network through agents. For each domain in the network there is an agent responsible for immediate and advance admission control. Reservations from different sources to the same destination are aggregated as their paths merge toward the destination. In addition, reservations can be prefix aggregated so that a reservation can be used for many end points in a destination domain. Agents are responsible for setting up police points at edge routers for checking granted commitments. Notes: Olov Schelen, Dept. of Computer Science, Lulea University of Technology, Lulea, Sweden
