Technical Summary

This document specifies a set of AVPs that is used to carry
QoS rules and parameters so that a Diameteter application
that needs QoS support can signal them. Information contained
in these AVPs are to be interpreted and consumed by QoS classifying
entities. The Rule-Set AVP is intended to replace the IPFilterRule
AVP defined in RFC 3588. It provides a clear and more extensible
format than the original text based approach provided by
IPFilterRule.

The AVPs defined in this document are designed to be general
enough to fit both PUSH and PULL QoS signalling models. The
document provides examples on how both models are accomplished
using existing Diameter applications.

Working Group Summary

There was consensus in the WG to publish the document.

Document Quality

The document has been sent for review to TSVWG and RADEXT. This
document defines a core component of a Network Operators QoS
architecture and thus have gone through a long review process
both within DIME WG and outside of it. It has also traversed
several re-start iteration before its current acceptable state.
