Abstract

The integration of distributed multimedia systems around the unifying theme of quality of service (QOS) is addressed. A set of key QOS requirements is presented and mapped onto a provisional QOS architecture (QOS-A) that has emerged from a experimental system designed and implemented at Lancaster. The scope of the discussion is limited to aspects of a QOS-A for the support of continuous media communications. Also, the focus is on asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) at the network layer rather than the full range of multiservice networks. Functions and mechanisms for QOS support are examined and placed within the evolving QOS-A.
