      Problem Statement: Bandwidth Aggregation for Internet Access
              draft-zhang-banana-problem-statement-03.txt

Abstract

   Bandwidth aggregation capabilities for Internet access services can
   significantly improve end user's Quality of Experience. Such
   capabilities are especially attractive in environments where multi-
   interfaced boxes become commonplace and can technically connect to
   various access networks, both wired and wireless.

   This document describes the problems with bandwidth aggregation for
   Internet access. A set of requirements are derived from the said
   problems.
