Abstract: The emergence of new types of popular multimedia services requires in the long run a quality-of-service (QoS) solution better than the best-effort service provided by IP. Failure
to widely deploy either one of the main architectures for IP QoS, integrated services (IntServ) or differentiated services (DiffServ),
has fueled research into alternate solutions based on overlay networks on top of IP.

At Blekinge Institute of Technology (BTH) we are working towards an architecture for multimedia distribution in overlay networks. An important part of this architecture is QoS overlay routing.

This paper discusses Overlay Routing protocol (ORP), a framework for unicast overlay routing, which will be used to test various QoS routing protocols and algorithms.
