The in-person IETF 107 Vancouver meeting (March 21-27) was canceled given the circumstances created by the spread of COVID-19. However, many virtual interim meetings have taken place during April and May.
The ALTO IETF WG planned to hold a virtual interim on Tuesday, Apr 21. Danny Alex Lachos Perez presented the draft “Supporting Multi-domain Use Cases with ALTO”. The presentation provides some insights to show that multi-domain applications can benefit from network information exposure using ALTO. More specifically, it identifies what network information the multi-domain applications need and the benefit of using it. Next, it discusses the issues in the ALTO design of gathering such multi-domain information. Finally, it lists a set of mechanisms to design a multi-domain ALTO framework.
