In this paper we propose an edge-based quality of service architecture aimed at site-to-site private networks over the Internet. We extend the traditional point-to-point service model to a point-to-set service model, assuming a finite, bounded set of destination sites. Instead of provisioning point-to-point links between a source and its set of destinations, a point-to-set service allows the user to have an allocated bandwidth, which could be flexibly assigned to traffic going toward any destination within the set. The proposed point-to-set service provides low loss rates and flexibility to users while allowing providers to obtain multiplexing gains by employing a probabilistic admission control test. Simulation results are provided to demonstrate the utility of deploying such a model.
