Technology-Independent Service Access Point for QoS Interworking
The paper deals with protocol architectures to support mapping of Quality of Service (QoS) between protocol layers of telecommunication networks. A Technology-Independent Service Access Point (TI-SAP) is studied to this aim. Inherent TI-SAP mapping operations introduce the generalization of the regular concept of equivalent bandwidth (EqB). Some performance evaluation is proposed to highlight EqB dimensioning at the TI-SAP interface.
