Title : IP Multicast in Differentiated Services Networks
Author(s) : R. Bless, K. Wehrle
Filename : draft-bless-diffserv-multicast-06.txt
Pages : 36

This document identifies problems which will arise when IP Multicast
is used in Differentiated Services (DS) networks. Although the basic
DS forwarding mechanisms work with IP Multicast as well, some facts
have to be considered which are related to the provisioning of
multicast resources. The presented problems mainly lead to
situations in which other service users are affected adversely in
their experienced quality. An adequate solution is described in this
document. It provides the necessary resource decoupling for
protecting reserved resources until admission control is performed.

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.
