> Subject: H.323/VoIP QoS
> Greetings!  My name is Joon Maeng.  I work for VTEL Corp in
> USA. I've talked to
> several companies while I was attending ITU and IETF meetings
> about establishing
> an ad-hoc group to address QoS (Quality of Service) issues in
> REAL-TIME TRAFFICS in the packet switched network, especially
> in the IP network.
> I was very encouraged by responses from those companies.
> Most of them agreed
> that lack of QoS support for real-time traffics  was one of
> major barriers in
> deploying H.323/VoIP products and  the H.323 industry would
> benefit by having a
> QoS activity group.  I would like to ask if your company

> the activities described in the following:
> Proposed name of the group: H.323/VoIP QoS Activity Group.
> Motivation:  ITU defined a good conference standard, H.323,
> for the packet
> network.  IETF is actively defining QoS standards for the IP
> network. The
> deployment of H.323/VoIP products has been slow partially due
> to lack of QoS
> supports in current IP network.  The H.323/VoIP industry
> shall work together to
> access the issues and provide solutions for the users.
> Proposed charter of the group:
> - Assess QoS issues in transporting real-time traffics (calls
> with long-duration
> compared to web-access) in the IP network,
> - Find the solutions to resolve issues,
> - Execute solutions via various processes such as building
> consensus on various
> QoS solutions among participants,
>   submitting recommendations to standardization bodies if needed, and
> facilitating inter-operablity testing between QoS standards
> and application
>   standards,
> - and education,  promotion, etc.
> I would expect the final charter and the structure of the
> group will be
> determined by the participants and their interests.    I
> would say that
> everything is open at this time except that the industry
> shall look at the QoS
> issues seriously for real-time traffics.  I'd like to clarify
> that the proposed
> group is not a group to standardize the QoS.  It is a group
> or a forum that is
> interested in helping and promoting the real-time QoS for
> H.323/VoIP industry
> through various methods (to be determined).   I plan to set
> up an email
> reflector for the initial discussions among participants and
> decide the
> following steps based on the discussions. Please email me

> if you and your company would be interested in joining the
> initial talks via

> greatly appreciated.
