          Traffic Classification and Quality of Service (QoS)
                        Attributes for Diameter

Abstract

   This document defines a number of Diameter attribute-value pairs
   (AVPs) for traffic classification with actions for filtering and
   Quality of Service (QoS) treatment.  These AVPs can be used in
   existing and future Diameter applications where permitted by the
   Augmented Backus-Naur Form (ABNF) specification of the respective
   Diameter command extension policy.
