I noticed that we are talking about QoS on the list.
In the current drafts folks are talking about QoS but are only specifying
Bandwidth attributes. There are other QoS attributes. The problem is that
there are a lot of different QoS attributes and different flavours as well.
The question is which attributes and flavours should be modelled.
I think we need a RADIUS QoS Draft in general. I started to write one and
stopped to see what was going on in a couple of other areas. (For example
Diameter and as well, work in 3GPP2 where the interface between the PDSN and
the AAA will be used to query and transport QoS attributes).
For example, one of the useful things about the CoA is that now I can change
the QoS attributes of a session mid stream. So it would be useful to define
these attributes (and not just Bandwidth).
Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
