Y.1541-QOSM: Model for Networks Using Y.1541 Quality-of-Service Classes

Abstract

   This document describes a QoS-NSLP Quality-of-Service model (QOSM)
   based on ITU-T Recommendation Y.1541 Network QoS Classes and related
   guidance on signaling.  Y.1541 specifies 8 classes of Network
   Performance objectives, and the Y.1541-QOSM extensions include
   additional QSPEC parameters and QOSM processing guidelines.
