               SRv6 for Deterministic Networking (DetNet)
                  draft-geng-spring-srv6-for-detnet-00

Abstract

   Deterministic Networking provides service with low jitter, bounded
   latency and low loss rate, using technologies of explicit route,
   resource reservation and service protection.This document specifies
   how to implement Deterministic Networking (DetNet) in a SRv6 Network.

1.  Introduction

   With more and more applications running in the Internet, quality of
   the service gains more and more attention, especially for some new
   applications, for example Cloud VR, Cloud Game, HDV (high-definition
   video) and so on, SLA (Service Level Agreement), including jitter,
   delay and loss rate, influences the users' experience significantly.
   So SLA guarantee is an important issue which requires new
   technologies and solutions for the network.

   Deterministic Networking (DetNet defined in
   [I-D.ietf-detnet-architecture]) provides a capability to carry
   specified data flows for real-time applications with extremely low
   data loss rates, low jitter and bounded latency within a network
   domain.  Techniques used include: 1) providing explicit paths for
   DetNet flows that satisfies the SLA requirement from user and do not
   immediately change with the network topology; 2) reserving data plane
   resources for DetNet flows along the allocated path of the flow; 3)
   replicates DetNet flows into two or more copies and transport
   different copies through different path in parallel, called service
   protection.
