The abstract is reported below. Of course comments and suggestions are welcome.
The support of QoS Differentiation in MPLS is based on the definition of
two types of LSP, respectively E-LSP and L-LSP (see ). Both E-LSP
and L-LSP can be established with bandwidth reservation. In this case
bandwidth requirements for the LSP must be signaled at LSP establishment
time, in order to perform admission control in the LSRs in the path. If
RSVP-TE is used as setup protocol, it has to support the signaling of
bandwidth requirements for the LSPs. In this document we extend the
RSVP-TE capability by defining a new type of Sender_Tspec (and
FlowSpec), explicitly designed to allow signaling of bandwidth
requirements for E-LSP and L-LSP set up. This new type, called MPLS
Sender_Tspec (MPLS FlowSpec), can include bandwidth requirements for
different classes inside the LSP.
