              RMD-QOSM: The NSIS Quality-of-Service Model
                  for Resource Management in Diffserv

Abstract

   This document describes a Next Steps in Signaling (NSIS) Quality-of-
   Service (QoS) Model for networks that use the Resource Management in
   Diffserv (RMD) concept.  RMD is a technique for adding admission
   control and preemption function to Differentiated Services (Diffserv)
   networks.  The RMD QoS Model allows devices external to the RMD
   network to signal reservation requests to Edge nodes in the RMD
   network.  The RMD Ingress Edge nodes classify the incoming flows into
   traffic classes and signals resource requests for the corresponding
   traffic class along the data path to the Egress Edge nodes for each
   flow.  Egress nodes reconstitute the original requests and continue
   forwarding them along the data path towards the final destination.
   In addition, RMD defines notification functions to indicate overload
   situations within the domain to the Edge nodes.
