A new IETF non-working group email list has been created.
To subscribe: https://www.ietf.org/mailman/listinfo/dlnex
DLNEX is to discuss various latency characteristics that can be exposed by
network elements or segments and to explore if there are any latency related
attributes that can be utilized by upper layer. For example, could there be
latency exposure that upper layer can utilize to plan how to distribute their
content to the right edges to achieve optimal user experience? Or something
used by Interactive AR controller to optimize their services? Is there any
value gained by upper layer expressing that they would rather have fixed
latency than losing packets?
The discussion is to answer questions like: are there any effective
interaction/coordination between upper layer and lower layer to achieve more
efficient optimization for latency sensitive services?
This discussion group is also a place to showcase the state of the arts in
latency optimized switching architecture and interface designs, as the
feasibility exercise for achieving reliable and deterministic latency through a
network element or a segment. Those latency exposures are the foundation for
(future) latency optimized control plane.
