Service quality across independently managed networks (SEQUIN)

Project ID: IST-1999-20841
Funded under: FP5-IST


This document provides a brief update on the achievements of a project funded under the "Research Networking" theme of the FP5 Information Society Technologies (IST) programme. It describes the objectives, experimental work and results of the project.

An end-to-end definition of network QoS to satisfy needs of international user groups is provided. The definition is complemented by an architecture and implementation model in a multi-domain and multi-technology environment, leading to the definition of a Premium IP service. A set of tests, both in laboratory and in live production IP networks has been conducted to validate the implementation model of the Premium IP service. The service is complemented by the definition of an end-to-end Service Level Specification and techniques for the monitoring and validation of an end-to-end SLA for QoS. The project concludes with providing guidelines and recommendations for wide scale implementation of Premium IP.
