Quality of Service (QoS) for real-time transmission can be achieved by resource reservation in the routers along the path. In recent years, several protocols and extensions to them have been designed for signaling resource reservation in IP networks. This work reviews various protocols that exhibit different signaling concepts. Then, we study the impact of control message retransmissions (CMR) and the control option on the reservation establishment delay (RED) and the reservation teardown delay (RTD). Numerical results quantify the resulting performance gain in different networking scenarios.
