This memo presents the specification of Dynamic Service Negotiation
Protocol (DSNP). DSNP is a protocol to negotiate the SLS (Service
Level Specification) in IP layer. It can be used for service
negotiation from host to network, network to host, and network to
network. The automated negotiation makes service negotiation
efficient in terms of time, cost, and correctness, etc. The dynamic
negotiation not only allows users to adapt their needs dynamically,
but also let providers better utilize the network. The DSNP
messages and packet formats are detailed. DSNP can be used in both
wireline and wireless networks. It is, however, particularly
useful in mobile environment. To demonstrate the usefulness of
DSNP, a reference wireless QoS architecture is presented.
Exemplary applications are illustrated.

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
