XACSE: Connection Set-up for Broadband Services using Generic QoS Parameters.


This paper will discuss the Quality of Service (QoS) requirements imposed by Broadband services. It will also show the complexities inherent in using and developing Broadband services over heterogeneous networks. The paper will show the approach taken in the RACE project Eurobridge (R1008) to solve these problems by using an enhanced Association and Control Services Element (XACSE) and Channel provider. A method for describing these requirements generically to facilitate connection set-up in heterogeneous networks will be put forward.
