	Title		: The `Virtual Wire' Per-Domain Behavior
	Author(s)	: V. Jacobson, K. Nichols, K. Poduri

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-
serv-ba-vw-00.txt with a new name to reflect a change in Diffserv 
WG terminology.

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.
