Abstract:

RSVP, a setup protocol to create flow specific reservation state in routers and hosts, is a component of the QoS extensions to the Internet architecture known as Integrated Services. RSVP was designed to provide robust, efficient, flexible, and extensible reservation service for multicast and unicast data flows. This report provides an overview of the development of RSVP, including an analysis of the key design decisions for the protocol as the protocol has evolved.
