Subject: Protocol Action: SBM (Subnet Bandwidth Manager): A Protocol for
RSVP-based Admission Control over IEEE 802-style networks to Proposed
The IESG has approved the following Internet-Drafts as Proposed
o SBM (Subnet Bandwidth Manager): A Protocol for RSVP-based Admission
Control over IEEE 802-style networks
o Integrated Service Mappings on IEEE 802 Networks
In the same action, the IESG also approved publication of A Framework for
Providing Integrated Services Over Shared and Switched IEEE 802 LAN
> as an Informational RFC.
These documents are the product of the Integrated Services over
Specific Link Layers Working Group. The IESG contact persons are Scott
Bradner and Vern Paxson.
These documents define the Subnet Bandwidth Manager (SBM) protocol, a
set of service mappings to be used with SBM and a framework for providing
Integrated Services over shared and switched IEEE-802-style LAN
The SBM (Subnet Bandwidth Manager) protocol provides a method for mapping
an internet-level setup protocol such as RSVP onto IEEE 802-style
In particular, it describes the operation of RSVP-enabled hosts/routers
link layer devices (switches, bridges) to support reservation of LAN
resources for RSVP-enabled data flows.
The service mapping document describes mappings of IETF Integrated
over LANs built from IEEE 802 network segments which may be interconnected
by IEEE 802.1D MAC Bridges (switches). It describes parameter mappings
supporting Controlled Load and Guaranteed Service using the inherent
capabilities of relevant IEEE 802 technologies
The framework document describes a framework for supporting IETF
Services on shared and switched LAN infrastructure. It includes
material on the capabilities of IEEE 802 like networks with regard to
parameters that affect Integrated Services such as access latency, delay
variation and queuing support in LAN switches. It discusses aspects of
IETF's Integrated Services model that cannot easily be accommodated in
different LAN environments. It outlines a functional model for supporting
the Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP) in such LAN environments.
Working Group Summary
The working group supported the publication of these documents and no
issues were raised during IETF Last-Call.
These documents were reviewed for the IESG by Scott Bradner.
