Research reported in this paper deals with the design of a communication architecture with guaranteed end-to-end quality of service (QoS) in an IPv6 environment providing differentiated services within a single Diff-Serv domain. The paper successively presents the design principles of the proposed architecture, the networking platform on which the architecture has been developed and the experimental measurements validating the IP level mechanisms providing the defined services. Results presented here have been obtained as part of the experiments in the national French project @IRS (Integrated Architecture of Networks and Services).
