Title : COPS-MAID: COPS Usage for Multi-Access Inter-Domain MPLS-DiffServ Networks
Author(s) : G. Carrozzo

This document describes an architecture for the communication between
Border Routers (BR) and a Bandwidth Broker (BB) in a MPLS/DiffServ
core network. This architecture is based on the Common Open Policy
Service (COPS) protocol and defines a new Client Type extension for it. This specification applies basically to intra-domain MPLS/DiffServ
network scenarios. However, the same extensions to COPS are suitable
for inter-domain communications, when MPLS Label Switched Paths (LSP)
with QoS-DiffServ guarantees are established across multiple
MPLS/DiffServ islands. Therefore, this document provides also a
simple and efficient model for inter-BB communication.

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
