Abstract

The Real-time Channel Administration Protocol (RCAP) provides control and administration services for the Tenet real-time protocol suite, a connection-oriented suite of network and transport layer protocols for realtime communication. RCAP performs per-channel reservation of network resources based on worst-case analysis to provide hard guarantees on delay, jitter, and packet loss bounds. It uses a hierarchical approach to provide these guarantees across a heterogeneous internetwork environment.

In this paper, we outline our assumptions and approaches to real-time communication. We then describe the service provided by RCAP, the protocol itself, our plans for implementation, and current status of our research.
