QoS support for integrated services over CATV
An overview of the basic CATV network architectural assumptions and the set of QoS requirements for supporting integrated services over CATV is presented and a MAC layer scheduling protocol is discussed that can efficiently multiplex constant bit rate traffic and best-effort traffic, while achieving fairness on any excess available bandwidth.

Supporting differentiated services using ATM ABR service

The idea is to use the flow control mechanism in ABR to eliminate the need for discarding packets inside the ATM network, while service differentiation among different IP flows can simply be supported by proper packet scheduling and/or discarding mechanisms at the ingress edge routers/switches.

- 18 June 2000
An algorithm that determines QoS-constrained routes is proposed and a framework that uses such an algorithm is outlined that removes the responsibility of QoS guarantees from the core nodes, thereby reducing their complexity.
