Resource Reservation Setup Protocol (RSVP)
 
 

EION Open IP Environment RSVP protocol supports RSVP signaling for admission control to RSVP-enabled DiffServ Networks.



RSVP Highlights and Literature

EION Open IP Environment RSVP module demonstrates the following key features:

  • Support for Unicast and Multicast Resource Reservation.
  • Integrates with the Open IP Environment IPv4 stack to receive and transmit protocol data units (PDUs).
  • Support POLICY_DATA Objects for policy control mechanisms. The INTEGRITY Object for authentication is not currently implemented.
  • Maintains RSVP “soft state” in routers to manage the dynamic reservation state in routers.
  • Support of RSVP message types (PATH, RESV, PATHTEAR, REVTEAR, RESV-ERR, PATHERR, REVCONF) as defined in RFC 2205
  • Use of data objects such as FLOW_SPEC, ADSPEC and SENDER_TSPEC that are opaque to RSVP (as per RFC 2210). These Objects are required to perform bandwidth admission control using RSVP in a Differentiated Services network.
  • Support of RSVP Extensions for Policy Control (RFC 2750) and RSVP Policy Data Object (as per RFC 2752)
  • Support of TCLASS object (as per RFC2814)
  • Support of RSVP DCLASS object format, used to represent and carry DSCPs within RSVP messages.
  • Support of COPS (RFC 2748) and COPS-RSVP (RFC 2749) for communication with External Policy Servers
  • The RSVP-Handling Task in a router will typically execute in the control plane much like routing protocols
