IntServ – Integrated Services
The Internet Integrated Services framework provides the ability for applications to choose defined QoS (Quality of Service) for their data. To support this requirement routers along the path followed by an application’s data packets must implement mechanisms to control the QoS offered to those packets. Also a way to communicate the application’s requirements to the routers along the path must also be provided. RSVP (Resource Reservation Protocol) has been defined to fulfil this task.
