Title : COPS Usage for Diffserv Resource Allocation (COPS-DRA)
Author(s) : S. Salsano
Filename : draft-salsano-cops-dra-00.txt
Date : 15-Oct-01
This document introduces a new client type for the COPS protocol to
support dynamic DiffServ resource allocation. The client type supports
both the Outsourcing and the Provisioning model to achieve a scalable,
efficient and flexible handling of network resources. The defined client
type can be used: i) on the interface between an Edge Router (Policy
Enforcement Point - PEP) and a Diffserv 'Bandwidth Broker' (acting as
Policy Decision Point -PDP); ii) on the interface between a client of a
QoS enabled network (acting as PEP) and the access point of the network
provider (e.g. the Edge Router acting as PDP)

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.
