Internet QoS Routing With IP Telephony and TCP Traffic
Source: University of California
In this paper, authors propose the use of QoS routing to enhance the support of IP Telephony. The proposed scheme is based on QoS intradomain OSPF routing, an extension of the conventional OSPF routing protocol. A DiffServ model is used (no per flow signalling, nor per flow accounting at intermediate nodes). Processing O/H is shifted from core to edge routers, which compute routes, monitor QoS path quality and enforce Call Acceptance Control (CAC) using the link state information advertised by OSPF. Via simulation, authors show significant delay and throughput improvement over IP telephony strategies currently used in the Internet. In particular, hot spots and focussed congestion points are easily avoided.
