The paper presents the design and implementation of a quality of service architecture for the Internet. The architecture is based on the emerging standards for resource reservation in the Internet, namely the RSVP protocol and the associated service specifications defined by the Internet Engineering Task Force. Our architecture represents a major functional enhancement to the traditional sockets based communication subsystem, while preserving application programming interface and binary compatibility with existing applications. It is scalable and supports a variety of network interfaces ranging from legacy LAN interfaces, such as token ring and Ethernet, to high speed ATM interfaces. We also describe our initial experiences with the implementation of this architecture on the IBM AIX platform
