Summary: Until now the Internet only provides best effort service without guaranteeing the timeliness or actual delivery of data. Quality of Service (QoS) architectures have been proposed but not deployed due to a fundamental problem: either the architecture is not scalable or it does not guarantee end-to-end QoS. The project tackles the problem by introducing mechanisms for network path discovery in the network core. The solution allows an integration of both scalability and end-to-end QoS architectures. The outcomes allow network providers to provision network resources efficiently, to develop competitive Internet-based products; and the service providers to develop quality services such as high quality IP phone, multimedia distributions.
