Quality of Service (QoS) guarantees for delay sensitive networked multimedia applications, such as teleoperation, must be application-to-application. We describe a set of services, a service kernel, required at the end points, for multimedia call establishment with QoS guarantees. These services provide: (1) Translation among different domain specifications (layerto -layer translation) and domain-resource specifications (layer-to-resource translation); (2) Admission and Allocation of resources… 
A real time-based architecture for qos multimedia provisioning
A quality of service architecture
TLDR
An overview of the Quality of Service Architecture (QoS-A) is provided and it is shown how QoS levels contracted at the transport service interface can be assured in the context of the authors' local ATM environment.
Bringing service differentiation to the end system
TLDR
This work proposes an architectural model that enhances the IETF Diffserv framework in order to provide service differentiation even inside network end-points, and presents a prototype implementation of such architecture along with experimental results validating the proposed solution.
A Survey of Quality of Service Architectures
TLDR
The approach taken in this paper is to set out terminology and elements of a generalised QoS framework for understanding and discussing quality of service in distributed multimedia systems, to review current research in the area of layer specificquality of service control and management and to evaluate a number of QoS architectures that have recently emerged in the literature.
A Review of Quality of Service Architectures
TLDR
The approach taken in this paper is to set out terminology and elements of a generalised QoS framework for understanding and discussing quality of service in distributed multimedia systems, to review current research in the area of layer specificquality of service control and management and to evaluate a number of QoS architectures that have emerged in the literature recently.
Towards integrated QoS management

  • Computer Science
    Proceedings of the Fifth IEEE Computer Society Workshop on Future Trends of Distributed Computing Systems
  • 1995
TLDR
A delayed approach of QoS management is presented in some detail, where internal service interfaces are reduced to a minimum and the application is provided with a high-level application-visible service interface.
Quality of service in heterogeneous distributed systems
  • C. Diot, A. Seneviratne
  • Computer Science, Business
    Proceedings of the Thirtieth Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences
  • 1997
TLDR
A simple and flexible approach to QoS management based on resource reservation and application dynamic adaptation is described, which aims to provide a simple and efficient solution to the best possible quality of transmission considering the level of resource reserved and the current network load.
Design, Implementation, and Experiences of the OMEGA End-Point Architecture
TLDR
The OMEGA architecture provides end-to-end quality-of-service (QoS) guarantees for distributed applications by integrating media and network QoS management into a single entity.
A Service Differentiation Scheme for the End-System
TLDR
This paper claims that a single architectural model, taking into account both end- system and network resource management is needed, and proposes a QoS architecture, which extends the concept of service differentiation inside the end-system.
Toward a QoS-aware binding model
TLDR
The design of QoSMail, QoS email application is presented, demonstrating a flexible model for using simple declarative requirement-statements and awareness of system properties to dynamically select policies governing message delivery.

  • 1993
TLDR
The quality of service (QoS) concept for broadband ISDN (B-ISN) is studied and the focus is on the translation of QoS parameters between layers, particularly from the AAL to the ATM layer, because the Aal must be designed to be service dependent and specific.
A Dynamic Connection Management Scheme for Guaranteed Performance Services in Packet-Switching Integrated Services Networks.†
TLDR
It is contention that availability and flexibility can be enhanced in a network by providing the network with the ability to modify the performance parameters and/or the route of any guaranteed performance connection in the network without violating the previously made performance contracts.
RSVP: a new resource reservation protocol
TLDR
A resource reservation protocol (RSVP), a flexible and scalable receiver-oriented simplex protocol, that provides receiver-initiated reservations to accommodate heterogeneity among receivers as well as dynamic membership changes and supports a dynamic and robust multipoint-to-multipoint communication model.
Experimental Study of Issues in End-to End QoS
TLDR
The conclusion is that QoS provision by the workstation operating system is as important for maintaining end-to-end guarantees as is network QoS.
The QOS Broker
TLDR
The QOS Broker is a software engineering technique that uses this principle to arrange for the delivery of end-to-end quality of service in distributed multimedia systems.

TLDR
It is shown that FEC is not effective for the two homogeneous scenarios, however, FEC reduces the loss rate for the video sources by several orders of magnitude for a heterogeneous scenario consisting of video and burst sources.

TLDR
The objective of Real-Time Mach is to develop a real-time version of the Mach kernel which provides users with a predictable and reliable distributed real- time computing environment.
