HICCUP -- Harnessing IP for Critical Communications Using Precedence (HICCUP) list


English (USA)

To deliver effective telecommunications capabilities when networks are stressed, technical solutions are needed to indicate precedence and deliver precedence-based preferential treatment. While emergency preparedness has a long history in telecommunications networks, the extensions to the Internet remain largely undeveloped.

As more critical communications move to public and private IP networks, the constituencies that design, manage and operate networks supporting critical communications need a focal point to: describe the requirements for critical communications in a way that is meaningful in the context of the Internet architecture; adapt circuit-switched based precedence treatment for critical communications to mechanisms that are appropriate in the Internet architecture; describe how mechanisms for precedence-based preferential treatment in IP networks can be used in an interoperable way; identify gaps in protocols to move toward solutions.

The purpose of this list is to bring together people interested in precedence-based IP communications to discuss the requirements, the problem space, and to agree upon a statement of work (charter) including deliverables. The requirements and problem space should be described through IDs that are then discussed on the list. In order for this to be most effective, participants will need to use restraint in not discussing solutions as the key is first defining the problem space. The goals are progress the work through a successful BOF leading to a working group.
