  3. 3. QoS Defined <ul><li>The goal : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Provide some level of predictability and control beyond the current IP “best-effort” service </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. QoS Metrics <ul><li>Performance attributes </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Service availability </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Delay </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Delay variation (jitter) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Throughput </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Packet loss rate </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Vary according to Service Level Agreement (SLA) </li></ul>
  5. 5. QoS Protocols <ul><li>ReSerVation Protocol (RSVP) </li></ul><ul><li>Multi Protocol Labeling Switching (MPLS) </li></ul><ul><li>Subnet Bandwidth Management (SBM) </li></ul>
  6. 6. RESOURCE RESERVATION PROTOCOL (RSVP) <ul><li>a network-control protocol that enables Internet applications to obtain differing qualities of service (QoS) for their data flows. </li></ul><ul><li>different applications have different network performance requirements. </li></ul><ul><li>Applications like, </li></ul><ul><ul><li>e-mail - require reliable delivery but not timeliness of delivery </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>videoconferencing, IP telephony - Data delivery must be timely but not necessarily reliable </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. RSVP Cont., <ul><li>RSVP is not a routing protocol </li></ul><ul><li>works in conjunction with routing protocols </li></ul><ul><li>implementing RSVP in an existing network does not require migration to a new routing protocol </li></ul><ul><li>Researchers at USC (ISI) and Xerox’s PARC conceived RSVP. </li></ul><ul><li>IETF specified an Open version in RFC 2205 </li></ul>
  8. 8. Topics to cover <ul><li>Data Flows </li></ul><ul><li>Quality of Service </li></ul><ul><li>Session Startup </li></ul><ul><li>Reservation Style </li></ul><ul><li>Soft State Implementation </li></ul><ul><li>Architecture and Protocol </li></ul><ul><li>Messages </li></ul><ul><li>Packet Format </li></ul>
  9. 9. RSVP Data Flows <ul><li>a data flow is a sequence of datagrams that have the same source, destination and quality of service. </li></ul><ul><li>flow specification - a data structure used by hosts to request special services from the internetwork. </li></ul><ul><li>describes the level of service requirement ( one of 3 traffic types) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Best-effort </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Rate-sensitive </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Delay-sensitive </li></ul></ul>
  10. 10. RSVP Data Flows <ul><li>Best-effort traffic </li></ul><ul><ul><li>applications require reliable delivery of data regardless of the amount of time needed to achieve that delivery. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Eg. File transfer, transaction traffic </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Rate-sensitive traffic </li></ul><ul><ul><li>a guaranteed transmission rate from its source to its destination. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Eg. H.323 videoconferencing (Constant Rate) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Delay-sensitive traffic </li></ul><ul><ul><li>timeliness of delivery and that varies its rate accordingly </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Eg. MPEG-II video (averages about 3 to 7 Mbps) </li></ul></ul>
  11. 11. Data Flows Process <ul><li>designed to manage flows of data rather than make decisions </li></ul><ul><li>Data flows consist of discrete sessions between specific source and destination </li></ul><ul><li>Sessions are identified by the following data: destination address, protocol ID, and destination port. </li></ul><ul><li>RSVP supports both unicast and multicast simplex sessions. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Quality of Service <ul><li>an attribute determine the way in which data interchanges are handled by participating entities (routers, receivers, and senders) </li></ul><ul><li>used to specify the QoS by, </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Hosts (to request a QoS level from the network) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Routers (deliver QoS requests to other routers along the path(s)) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>maintains the router and host state to provide the requested service. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Session Startup <ul><li>To initiate an RSVP multicast session, a receiver first joins the multicast group using IGMP. </li></ul><ul><li>In unicast session, unicast routing serves function of IGMP. </li></ul><ul><li>Sender sends RSVP path message to IP destination address. </li></ul><ul><li>The receiver application receives a path message and send reservation-request messages with desired flow descriptors using RSVP. </li></ul><ul><li>After the sender application receives a reservation-request message, the sender starts sending data packets. </li></ul>
  14. 14. Reservation Style <ul><li>a set of control options that specify a number of supported parameters </li></ul><ul><li>supports two major classes of reservation: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>distinct reservations </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>install a flow for each relevant sender in each session </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>shared reservations </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>used by a set of senders that are known not to interfere with each other </li></ul></ul></ul>
  15. 15. Reservation Style <ul><li>distinct and shared RSVP reservation-style types in the context of their scope, </li></ul>RSVP Supports Both Distinct Reservations and Shared Reservations
  16. 16. Reservation Style <ul><li>Wildcard-Filter Style </li></ul><ul><ul><li>a single reservation is created into which flows from all upstream senders are mixed. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>size is the largest of the resource requests for that link from all receivers </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Fixed-Filter Style </li></ul><ul><ul><li>a distinct reservation request is created for data packets from a particular sender </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>scope is determined by an explicit list of senders </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The total reservation on a link for a given session is the total of the FF reservations for all requested senders </li></ul></ul>
  17. 17. Reservation Style <ul><li>Shared-Explicit Style </li></ul><ul><ul><li>a shared reservation environment with an explicit reservation scope </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>the set of senders is specified explicitly by the receiver making the reservation </li></ul></ul>
  18. 18. Soft State Implementation <ul><li>a soft state refers to a state in routers and end nodes </li></ul><ul><li>updated by certain RSVP messages </li></ul><ul><li>Permits dynamic group membership changes and adapt to changes in routing </li></ul><ul><li>To maintain a reservation state, RSVP tracks a soft state in router and host nodes </li></ul>
  19. 19. Soft State Implementation <ul><li>The RSVP soft state is created and must be periodically refreshed by path and reservation-request messages. </li></ul><ul><li>If no matching refresh messages arrive before the expiration timeout, the state is deleted. </li></ul><ul><li>also can be deleted by an explicit teardown message </li></ul><ul><li>When a route changes, the next path message initializes the path state on the new route. </li></ul><ul><li>When state changes occur, RSVP propagates those changes from end to end within an RSVP network without delay </li></ul>
  20. 20. RSVP Architecture
  21. 21. RSVP Architecture <ul><li>Packet classifier: determines the route and QoS class for each packet </li></ul><ul><li>Admission control: determines whether the node has sufficient available resources to supply the required QoS </li></ul><ul><li>Policy control: determines whether the user has administrative permission to make the reservation. </li></ul><ul><li>Packet scheduler : manages the various queues to guarantee the required QoS (resources like CPU time or buffers) </li></ul>
  22. 22. RSVP Protocol Operation <ul><li>process initiation begins when an RSVP daemon consults the local routing protocol(s) to obtain routes. </li></ul><ul><li>A host sends IGMP messages to join a multicast group and RSVP messages to reserve resources along the delivery path(s). </li></ul><ul><li>Each router passes incoming data packets to a packet classifier and packet scheduler. </li></ul><ul><li>A QoS request, originating in a receiver host application </li></ul>
  23. 23. RSVP Protocol Operation <ul><li>Protocol then is used to pass the request to all the nodes (routers and hosts) along the reverse data path(s) to the data source(s). </li></ul><ul><li>At each node, the RSVP program applies a local decision procedure called admission control and policy control. </li></ul><ul><li>If control succeeds, sets the parameters to obtain the desired QoS </li></ul><ul><li>If admission control fails at any node, the program returns an error indication to the application that originated the request. </li></ul>
  24. 24. RSVP Tunneling <ul><li>impossible to deploy RSVP or any new protocol at the same moment throughout the entire Internet. </li></ul><ul><li>when two RSVP-capable routers are interconnected via non-RSVP routers </li></ul><ul><li>Non-RSVP is incapable of performing resource reservation </li></ul><ul><li>but can provide acceptable and useful real-time service </li></ul><ul><li>RSVP supports tunneling, which occurs automatically through non-RSVP routers. </li></ul>
  25. 25. RSVP Tunneling <ul><li>Tunneling requires RSVP and non-RSVP routers to forward path messages toward the destination using local routing table </li></ul><ul><li>a path message traverses a non-RSVP router, the path message copies carry the IP address of the last RSVP-capable router. </li></ul><ul><li>Reservation-request messages are forwarded to the next upstream RSVP-capable router. </li></ul>
  26. 26. RSVP Messages <ul><li>Supports four basic message types, </li></ul><ul><li>Reservation-Request Messages </li></ul><ul><ul><li>sent by each receiver host toward the senders. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>must be delivered to the sender hosts to set up appropriate traffic-control parameters. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Path Messages </li></ul><ul><ul><li>sent by each sender along the unicast or multicast routes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A path message is used to store the path state in each node. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The path state is used to route reservation-request messages in the reverse direction. </li></ul></ul>
  27. 27. RSVP Messages <ul><li>Teardown Messages </li></ul><ul><ul><li>remove the path and reservation state without waiting for the cleanup timeout </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Path-teardown messages </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Reservation-request teardown messages </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Error and Confirmation Messages </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Path-error messages </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Reservation-request error messages </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Admission Failure </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Bandwidth unavailable </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Service not supported </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Reservation-request acknowledgment messages </li></ul></ul>
  28. 28. RSVP Packet Format <ul><li>RSVP message header fields are comprised of the following: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Version —A 4-bit field indicating the protocol version number (currently version 1). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Flags —A 4-bit field with no flags currently defined. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Checksum —A 16-bit field representing a standard TCP/UDP checksum over the contents of the RSVP message </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Length —A 16-bit field representing the length of this RSVP packet in bytes. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Send TTL —An 8-bit field indicating the IP time-to-live (TTL) value with which the message was sent. </li></ul></ul>
  29. 29. RSVP Packet Format <ul><ul><li>Type —An 8-bit field with six possible (integer) values. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Message ID —A 32-bit field providing a label shared by all fragments of one message </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>More fragments (MF) flag —Low-order bit of a 1-byte word with the other 7 high-order bits specified as reserved. MF is set on for all but the last fragment of a message. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Fragment offset —A 24-bit field representing the byte offset of the fragment in the message </li></ul></ul>
  30. 30. Conclusion <ul><li>RSVP is a transport layer protocol that enables a network to provide differentiated levels of service to specific flows of data. </li></ul><ul><li>different application types have different performance requirements. </li></ul><ul><li>RSVP acknowledges these differences and provides the mechanisms necessary to detect the levels of performance required by different applications. </li></ul>
  31. 31. Queries?? <ul><li>Is it necessary to migrate away from your existing routing protocol to support RSVP? </li></ul><ul><li>Identify the three RSVP levels of service? </li></ul><ul><li>What are the two RSVP reservation classes, and how do they differ? </li></ul><ul><li>How can RSVP be used through network regions that do not support RSVP? </li></ul>
  32. 32. <ul><li>Thank You </li></ul>
  33. 35. Multi-Protocol Label Switching <ul><li>MPLS is a packet forwarding technology which uses labels to make data forwarding decisions. </li></ul><ul><li>With MPLS, the Layer 3 header analysis is done just once (when the packet enters the MPLS domain). Label inspection drives subsequent packet forwarding. </li></ul><ul><li>MPLS provides these beneficial applications: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Virtual Private Networking (VPN) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Traffic Engineering (TE) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Quality of Service (QoS) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Any Transport over MPLS (AToM) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Additionally, it decreases the forwarding overhead on the core routers. MPLS technologies are applicable to any network layer protocol. </li></ul>
  34. 36. <ul><li>A label is a short, four byte, fixed length, locally significant identifier which is used to identify a Forwarding Equivalence Class (FEC). </li></ul><ul><li>The label which is put on a particular packet represents the FEC to which that packet is assigned. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Label - Label Value (Unstructured), 20 bits </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Exp - Experimental Use, 3 bits; currently used as a Class of Service (CoS) field. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>S - Bottom of Stack, 1 bit and TTLTime - to Live, 8 bits </li></ul></ul>
  35. 37. Subnet Bandwidth Management <ul><li>Applies to the Data Link Layer (OSI layer 2) </li></ul><ul><li>Makes LAN topologies (e.g. Ethernet) QoS-enabled </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Fundamental requirement </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>All traffic must pass through at least one SBM-enabled switch </li></ul></ul><ul><li>SBM Modules </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Bandwidth Allocator (BA) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hosted on switches </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Performs admission control </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Requestor Module (RM) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Resides in every end-station </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Maps Layer 2 priority levels and the higher-layer QoS protocol parameters </li></ul></ul>
