Session 2A

Quality of Service in the Internet World
Chair: Peter Kaufmann, DFN-Verein, Germany

Improving Quality of Service (QoS) in the Internet is a major challenge. There are several approaches, but an end-to-end QoS-solution does not yet exist. Apart from technical problems, the cooperation of different organisational domains has to be solved. QoS may be handled bottom-up from the network layer, top-down from the application or even "solved" with bandwidth overprovision. This session provides some status information on the implementation of QoS and further examples to deal with QoS needs.
