DiffServ in the Web Different Approaches for Enabling better Services in the World Wide Web

Abstract

The paper discusses several approaches to use the Differentiated Services Architecture for providing better services to the users of the World Wide Web. In the future Internet a user wants to have the possibility to select between different service levels to get specific web-contents. The sender orientation of the Differentiated Services Architecture imposes some difficulties in providing the user with a means for determining the service he wants to get out of a web-server. In this paper three approaches for providing better services to the users of the World Wide Web based on the Differentiated Services Architecture are presented. For each approach the capability of easy use and fine grade selection of quality will be discussed. Additionally, an overview over implementation issues using Linux is presented. Finally, it is argued that especially the topics of management of Differentiated Services and pricing for these services are to be discussed in more detail in future.
