This paper describes that RSVP is the IP service that allows applications to request end-to-end QoS guarantees from the network. Cisco VoIP applications use RSVP for call admission control, limiting the accepted voice load on the IP network to guarantee the QoS levels of calls. The VoIP Call Admission Control using RSVP feature synchronizes RSVP signaling with H.323 Version 2 signaling to ensure that the bandwidth reservation is established in both directions before a call moves to the alerting phase (ringing). This ensures that the called party phone rings only after the resources for the call have been reserved. Using RSVP-based admission control, VoIP applications can reserve network bandwidth and react appropriately if bandwidth reservation fails.
