Performance Analysis of QoS Based Multimedia Real-Time Protocol
Many multimedia applications require guaranteed Quality of Service (QoS) in communication networks. Typically, the QoS includes bandwidth, delay and delay jitter. This paper presents a real-time protocol to support multimedia communications in which the Connections are established with efficient resource reservation and proper admission control. During data transmission, the rate, jitter control, and packet scheduling techniques are employed to fulfill the performance contract. The protocol also Incorporates multicast function to provide group communications. This protocol is implemented on a high-speed network which consists of interconnected ATM switches, FDDI networks, routers, and hosts.
