Title : Requirements for Signaling Protocols
Author(s) : M. Brunner
Filename : draft-ietf-nsis-req-04.txt
Pages : 38
Date : 15-Aug-02
This document defines requirements for signaling across different
network environments, where different network environments across
administrative and technology domains. Signaling is mainly though
for QoS such as , however in recent year several other
applications of signaling have been defined such as signaling for
MPLS label distribution . To achieve wide applicability of the
requirements, the starting point is a diverse set of scenarios/use
cases concerning various types of networks and application
interactions. We also provide an outline structure for the problem,
including related terminology. Taken with the scenarios, this allows
us to focus more precisely on which parts of the overall problem
need to be solved. We present the assumptions and the aspects not
considered within scope before listing the requirements grouped
according to areas such as architecture and design goals, signaling
flows, layering, performance, flexibility, security, and mobility.

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
