1.  Introduction

   Deterministic Networking (DetNet) provides the capability to carry
   specified unicast and/or multicast data flows for real-time
   applications with extremely low data loss rates and bounded latency
   within a network domain.  As discussed in the Deterministic
   Networking Architecture [I-D.ietf-detnet-architecture], techniques
   used to provide this capability include reserving data plane
   resources for individual (or aggregated) DetNet flows in some or all
   of the intermediate nodes along the path of the flow, providing
   explicit routes for DetNet flows that do not immediately change with
