Traffic Classification and Quality of Service (QoS) Attributes for Diameter
Draft of message to be sent after approval:
From: The IESG <email@example.com> To: IETF-Announce <firstname.lastname@example.org> Cc: Internet Architecture Board <email@example.com>, RFC Editor <firstname.lastname@example.org>, dime mailing list <email@example.com>, dime chair <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: Protocol Action: 'Traffic Classification and Quality of Service Attributes for Diameter' to Proposed Standard The IESG has approved the following document: - 'Traffic Classification and Quality of Service Attributes for Diameter ' <draft-ietf-dime-qos-attributes-15.txt> as a Proposed Standard This document is the product of the Diameter Maintenance and Extensions Working Group. The IESG contact persons are Dan Romascanu and Ron Bonica. A URL of this Internet-Draft is: http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-dime-qos-attributes-15.txt
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. Personnel Victor Fajardo is the Document Shepherd for this document. Dan Romascanu is the Responsible Area Director.
