                 Deterministic Networking Architecture
                   draft-ietf-detnet-architecture-09

Abstract

   This document provides the overall architecture for Deterministic
   Networking (DetNet), which provides a capability to carry specified
   unicast or multicast data flows for real-time applications with
   extremely low data loss rates and bounded latency within a network
   domain.  Techniques used include: 1) reserving data plane resources
   for individual (or aggregated) DetNet flows in some or all of the
   intermediate nodes along the path of the flow; 2) providing explicit
   routes for DetNet flows that do not immediately change with the
   network topology; and 3) distributing data from DetNet flow packets
   over time and/or space to ensure delivery of each packet's data in
   spite of the loss of a path.  DetNet operates at the IP layer and
   delivers service over sub-network technologies such as MPLS and IEEE
   802.1 Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN).
