> 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 would be

> 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

> industry
> through various methods (to be determined).   I plan to set up an
