This specification describes the NSIS Signaling Layer Protocol (NSLP)
for signaling Quality of Service (QoS) reservations in the Internet.
It is in accordance with the framework and requirements developed in
NSIS.  Together with General Internet Signaling Transport (GIST), it
provides functionality similar to RSVP and extends it.  The QoS NSLP
is independent of the underlying QoS specification or architecture
and provides support for different reservation models.  It is
simplified by the elimination of support for multicast flows.  This
specification explains the overall protocol approach, describes the
design decisions made, and provides examples.  It specifies object,
message formats, and processing rules.  This document defines an 
Experimental Protocol for the Internet community.

This document is a product of the Next Steps in Signaling Working Group of the IETF.

EXPERIMENTAL: This memo defines an Experimental Protocol for the
