RFCs 3689 and 3690 detail requirements for an Emergency
Telecommunications Service (ETS), of which an Internet Emergency
Preparedness Service (IEPS) would be a part. Some of these types of
services require call preemption; others require call queuing or
other mechanisms. IEPS requires a Call Admission Control (CAC)
procedure and a Per Hop Behavior (PHB) for the data that meet the needs of
this architecture. Such a CAC procedure and PHB is
appropriate to any service that might use H.323 or SIP to set up
real-time sessions. The key requirement is to guarantee an elevated
probability of call completion to an authorized user in time of crisis.
This document primarily discusses supporting ETS in the context of
the US Government and NATO, because it focuses on the Multi-Level
Precedence and Preemption (MLPP) and Government Emergency Telecommunication Service (GETS) standards. The architectures described
here are applicable beyond these organizations. This memo provides
information for the Internet community.
