The Real-time Channel Administration Protocol (RCAP) provides control and administration services for the Tenet Real-Time Protocol Suite, a connection-oriented suite of network and transport layer protocols for real-time communication. RCAP performs per-channel reservation of network resources based on worst-case analysis to provide hard guarantees on(More)
