Protocol Action: RSVP Reservations Aggregation to Proposed Standard
The IESG has approved the Internet-Draft 'RSVP Reservations
Aggregation' <draft-ietf-issll-rsvp-aggr-04.txt> as a Proposed
Standard. This document is the product of the Integrated Services over
Specific Link Layers Working Group. The IESG contact persons are
Allison Mankin and Scott Bradner.
This document describes the use of a single RSVP reservation to aggregate
other RSVP reservations across a transit routing region, in a manner
conceptually similar to the use of Virtual Paths in an ATM network. It
provides a way to dynamically create the aggregate reservation, classify the
traffic for which the aggregate reservation applies, determine how much
bandwidth is needed to achieve the requirement, and recover the bandwidth
when the sub-reservations are no longer required. It also contains
recommendations concerning algorithms and policies for predictive
The document addresses both intra- and inter-domain unicast routes and
