Abstract

The telecom world is moving towards an "all-IP" network. Forthcoming new multimedia applications require better than best-effort service from the connecting network. This paper introduces a fully IP-based QoS architecture framework for mobile access networks. The framework covers strict QoS guarantees through RSVP reservations but also provides more flexibility and less overhead by allowing DiffServ aggregate packet handling within the access network. The QoS architecture is intended to be as independent as possible from the mobility scheme used, thus allowing different macro and micro mobility implementations. Some fundamental mobility design decisions, however, affect the QoS architecture, and they are also identified.
