Abstract

Quality of Service (QoS) guarantees must be supported in a network that intends to carry real-time and multimedia traffic effectively. The effort of satisfying the QoS different requirements of these applications has resulted in the proposals of several QoS-based frameworks, such as Integrated Services (IntServ) [1], Differentiated Services (DiffServ) [2], and Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) [6].
