Deploying Diffserv in Backbone Networks for Tight SLA Control
January/February 2005 (vol. 9 no. 1)
pp. 58-65
Clarence Filsfils, Cisco Systems
John Evans, Cisco Systems
The Differentiated Services Architecture (Diffserv) enables service providers to offer tighter, more comprehensive service-level agreements (SLAs) for IP service performance. One way it does this is by letting designers engineer IP backbone networks to assure that SLA parameters are met on a per-class basis. This review covers best practices for designing, validating, deploying, and operating Diffserv in the network backbone. It also presents new results from router-based testing that demonstrate how, with Diffserv, high-performance backbone routers can achieve tight SLA capabilities.
