The IETF AVT RTCP Reporting Extensions draft is now at release 03 (attached)
and is being proposed for "last call" at the IETF meeting in mid-March. I
hope that the document is reaching a level of stability that will permit it
to be considered for inclusion in H.460.9
I fully agree with Bob's reply below. In my view H.460.9 is now sufficiently
open to be used for transporting also advanced statistical data, even if the
initial choice reflects the content of today's RTCP reports.
The information content of QoS reports is only one part of the standard.
Another - maybe the major - part is the mechanism for conveying these
reports from endpoints to gatekeepers and between gatekeepers. And this part
does not change if improved QoS statistics become available.
It was the unanimous opinion of the experts at the SG16 meeting that H.460.9
will be used for extended QoS reports as soon as the relevant work in IETF
has finished. How this is best done will be decided when the RFC is
available. Any input from your side is certainly welcome.
