A signalling protocol that allows applications to request specific quality of service from the network.
IETF draft standard that helps implement Internet quality of service by requesting the reservation of network bandwidth.
An OS/400 Network Quality of Service (QoS) function for TCP/IP traffic. Includes an iSeries RSVP agent and X/Open standard APIs for applications. RSVP flow begins with the sender transmitting a PATH test to receiver; receiver transmits RESV message to sender; resources are reserved in routers along the path; data follows same route as PATH and RESV messages.
An Internet protocol used for negotiating end-to-end IP quality of service (QoS) within the network. In a PacketCable-based network, RSVP can be used to negotiate QoS on the cable access network. Or IETF resource reservation setup protocol for IP networks.
A reservation setup protocol for the Internet.
A signaling protocol that is used to establish connections with the QoS requested by an application
IETF specification. Allows applications to request dedicated resources.
A unicast and multicast signaling protocol, designed to install and maintain reservation state information at each router along the path of a stream of data. RSVP-enabled applications may improve the quality of service across IP networks. Networked multimedia applications, many of which benefit from a predictable end-to-end connection, are likely to be initial users of RSVP-signaled services.
An Internet protocol being developed to enable the Internet to support specified Quality of Service (QoS) policies. By using RSVP, a program will be able to reserve resources along a route from source to destination. RSVP-enabled routers will then schedule and prioritize packets to meet the QoS policies.
A signaling protocol that allows the sender and receiver in a communication to set up a reserved highway for data transmission with a specified quality of service. See also: protocol
The Resource ReSerVation Protocol (RSVP), described in RFC 2205, is a network layer protocol designed to reserve resources across a network for an integrated services Internet. "RSVP does not transport application data but is rather an Internet control protocol, like ICMP, IGMP, or routing protocols" - RFC 2205. RSVP provides receiver-initiated setup of resource reservations for multicast or unicast data flows with scaling and robustness.
