Transport system services that integrate operating system resources such as CPUs, virtual memory, and I/O devices with network protocols to support distributed multimedia applications running on local and wide area networks are described and classified. A taxonomy is presented, and four commercial and experimental transport systems are compared and evaluated in terms of their protocol processing support. The systems discussed are System V UNIX STREAMS, the BSD UNIX networking subsystem, the x-kernel, and the Choices Conduit system
