A Comparison with RSVP

  • Luca Delgrossi


This chapter provides a short comparison of ST-II with another prominent internetworking reservation protocol: the Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP) [ZDES93]. The internal details of ST-II and RSVP are analysed, focusing on the data forwarding, multicast, and quality of service aspects of multimedia communication. Rather than trying to decide which protocol is superior, the goal has been to identify the classes of applications that are better supported by one or the other protocol.
