Current resource reservation architectures for multimedia networks don't scale well for a large number of flows. We propose a new architecture that aggregates flows on each link in the network. Therefore, the network has no knowledge of individual flows, and resource management functions traditionally implemented in the network (such as flow acceptance control) are delegated to hosts.
