IETF news from NEAT

NEAT continues to have a strong presence in standardisation activities at the IETF.

In November 2017, a new standards-track RFC co-authored by Michael Tüxen (FHM) was published: RFC 8260, “Stream Schedulers and User Message Interleaving for the Stream Control Transmission Protocol”.

NEAT was at the 100th meeting of the IETF in Singapore, held on November 11-17, 2017.

Five Internet Drafts co-authored by NEAT participants were presented to three different IETF Working Groups (TAPS, TSVWG, INTAREA). Besides, Eric Vyncke (Cisco; pictured below) presented NEAT as part of his talk on Provisioning Domains (PvD) to the newly proposed Path Aware Networking Research Group of the IRTF (PANRG).

Also, David Hayes (Simula; pictured below) gave a talk to the IRTF Internet Congestion Control RG (ICCRG) on our work on designing a deadline-aware scavenger congestion controller.

NEAT is planning to participate one last time in an IETF meeting before the project ends, during IETF 101 in London, next March.
