We present a scalable architecture for assuring Quality of Service to VoIP applications in an Internet Service Provider's network. This architecture is based on the Differentiated Services and Bandwidth Broker models, and can also be used by other resource-sensitive applications. In this paper, we elaborate on a number of significant issues involved in the design, implementation, deployment and use of the Bandwidth Broker. The Call Agent architecture is used as the VoIP application. We describe the Bandwidth Broker prototype that is used to validate our approach. Our findings suggest that it is feasible to use the Bandwidth Broker architecture for assuring QoS, and a trade-off exists between the granularity of resource requests and call-setup delay.
