Title : The `Virtual Wire' Per-Domain Behavior
Author(s) : V. Jacobson, K. Nichols, K. Poduri
Filename : draft-ietf-diffserv-pdb-vw-00.txt
Pages : 21

This document describes an edge-to-edge behavior, in diffserv
terminology a per-domain behavior, called `Virtual Wire' (VW)
that can be constructed in any domain supporting the diffserv EF
PHB plus appropriate domain ingress policers. The VW behavior is
essentially indistinguishable from a dedicated circuit and can be
used anywhere it is desired to replace dedicated circuits with IP
transport. Although one attribute of VW is the delivery of a peak
rate, in VW this is explicitly coupled with a bounded jitter
The document is a edited version of the earlier draft-ietf-diff-

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
