An Integrated Services Architecture with End-to-End Quality of Service
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
To develop an integrated services architecture to handle the integration of multimedia (voice, video, data) over the Army tactical network with predictable quality of service (QoS), Broadata Communications, Inc. (BCI) proposes to develop a time coupledpacketized streaming (TCPS) protocol to work under the multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) network architecture. The TCPS allows the time characteristics of multimedia information embedded in the data packets, thus providing guaranteed real timeend-to-end multimedia data delivery services. To provide the feasibility of the proposed TCPS protocol in Phase I, the foundation of the TCPS protocol will be developed. Based on the developed TCPS protocol, a computer simulation will be created toanalyze the performance of the TCPS for end-to-end real time multimedia data services. The goal of this project is to develop a practical implementation plan of the TCPS technology.In addition to the Army tactical network applications, the TCPS approachcan be also used for many real time multimedia applications in commercial audio/video streaming over the Internet.
