Ballot Text

Technical Summary

This document specifies the MPLS Deterministic Networking data plane
operation and encapsulation over an IP network.  The approach is
modeled on the operation of MPLS and over UDP/IP packet switched

Working Group Summary

No controversy, pretty much just putting the pieces together.

Document Quality

At this time there are no shipping implementations of DetNet per se, however clearly IP and MPLS are mature technologies.
