Abstract---
Much research in QoS routing has focused on the unicast communication
paradigm. However,another communicationparadigm --- anycasting --- has
grown in importance in recent years. In the anycast paradigm, one endpoint
is specified and the other is selected from a set of ``equivalent'' endpoints.
An anycast service in a QoS­based network requires selection of both an
endpoint and a path that satisfies a QoS constraint. This paper provides
background material on anycasting in both best­effort networks and QoS­
based networks. We then focus on the differentiated services QoS model,
and present the design of a QoS­based anycasting architecture consistent
with that model. Via simulations, we explore the design options implied by
the architecture, including signalling protocols, server selection/sorting al­
gorithms and resource reservation granularity. We conclude by highlighting
