    Micro-burst Decreasing in Layer3 Network for Low-Latency Traffic
                 draft-du-detnet-layer3-low-latency-02

Abstract

   This document introduces the problem of micro-bursts in layer3
   network, and proposed a method to decrease the micro-bursts in layer3
   network for low-latency traffic.

1.  Introduction

   The DetNet architecture in RFC 8655 [RFC8655] is supposed to work in
   campus-wide networks and private WANs, including the large-scale ISP
   network scenario, such as the 5G bearing network mentioned in RFC
   8578 [RFC8578].  It is essential for the large-scale ISP network to
   be able to provide the low-latency service.  The low-latency
   requirement exists in both L2 and L3 networks, and in both small and
   large networks.

   However, as talked in [I-D.qiang-detnet-large-scale-detnet],
   deploying deterministic services in a large-scale network brings a
   lot of new challenges.  A novel method called LDN (Large-scale
   Deterministic Network) is introduced in
   [I-D.qiang-detnet-large-scale-detnet], which explores the
   deterministic forwarding over a large-scale network.

   This document also explores the deterministic service in the large-
   scale layer 3 network, and proposed a method based on micro-burst
   decreasing, which can benefit the forwarding of low-latency traffic
   in a large-scale network.

2.  Gaps for Large-scale Layer 3 Deterministic Network

   According to RFC 8655 [RFC8655], DetNet operates at the IP layer and
   delivers service over lower-layer technologies such as MPLS and IEEE
   802.1 Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN).  However, the TSN mechanisms
