This paper is motivated by the concern of the multiservice network provider who wishes to offer users quality of service guarantees concerning transparency, accessibility and throughput. We consider how these guarantees can be respected jointly by implementing a simple service model distinguishing stream and elastic traffic, and by providing sufficient network capacity to ensure negligible blocking probabilities for an estimated traffic demand.
