There appears to be an emerging, widespread, agreement that some sort of
differentiated service capability must be added to the Internet.
However most of the discussion has focused on details of the lowest-level
queuing primitives needed to implement different services. While
these details are very important, they have meaning only when viewed in
a larger, architectural context of what sorts of services are actually
viable and deployable in a system as large and heterogeneous as the Internet.
Slides for the talk are available in
An internet draft containing background for the talk is available in
text (the ascii is missing all the figures).
This talk will try to expose some of the architectural context & constraints
and explore some of the implications for low-level primitives and other
aspects of the service.
