Technical Summary This draft proposes an NSIS Signaling Layer Protocol (NSLP) for signaling QoS reservations in the Internet. The NSLP is the second layer in the two-layer signaling model defined in RFC 4080. Together with GIST (draft-ietf-nsis-ntlp), it provides functionality similar to RSVP and extends it. The QoS NSLP is independent of the used QoS specification or architecture and provides support for different reservation models. Working Group Summary There have been several WGLC on the document, plus several pre-WGLCs on the document. The editors have gotten extensive feedback from implementors and have clarified text based upon the feedback. There are 3 or more independent implementations of the QoS NSLP, and there were multiple interop events in the past. Protocol Quality This document was reviewed by the working group chair as well as the WG. We feel that this document is ready, and implementors feel that the specification is implementable. Personal The document shepherd is Martin Stimerling and the responsible AD Magnus Westerlund.
