This document requests one Differentiated Services Code Point (DSCP) from 
the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) for a class of real-time
traffic.  This traffic class conforms to the Expedited Forwarding Per-Hop
Behavior.  This traffic is also admitted by the network using a Call 
Admission Control (CAC) procedure involving authentication, authorization, 
and capacity admission.  This differs from a real-time traffic class that 
conforms to the Expedited Forwarding Per-Hop Behavior but is not subject 
to capacity admission or subject to very coarse capacity admission.  

This document is a product of the Transport Area Working Group Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.
