Paper Abstract

Many video and audio sessions are transmitted via the Multicast Backbone (MBone) medium day by day. The Integrated Services architecture of the Internet will make it now possible to transmit and receive these sessions in a 'guaranteed' quality of service. To allow this in heterogeneous networks, consisting of, e.g. Ethernet and ATM, an interaction between the QoS architectures of the Internet and ATM is necessary. However, they are very different, so mapping them is a difficult task. In this paper, the implementation of an interaction approach for the QoS architectures developed for the Internet and for ATM, and the extension of the MBone VCR for recording and playing back MBone sessions in a higher quality, is described. This system allows the QoS supported recording and off-line playback of MBone session in heterogeneous IP/ATM networks.
