Abstract

This paper discusses the use of the Policy Based Network paradigm, COPS (Common Open Policy Service) and NSIS (Next Steps In Signalling) frameworks being developed by the IETF, in the context of the European Project EuQoS (End-to-End Quality of Service over Heterogeneous Networks). An overview of the EuQoS architecture is provided followed by the analysis of the use of PBN/COPS and NSIS to support the Signalling and Service Negotiation (SSN) function. The implementation status and validation aspects are also discussed in the paper and some preliminary results are included.
