The COalition Based (COB) approach relies upon the dynamic coordination of providers forming ondemand coalitions supervised by a central controller.
The holder of this line should not perceive any influence of the presence or absence of other users. It can be used for real-time applications or mission critical traffic such as network control. • The Assured Forwarding service  or assured service  provides an exception of a certain amount of bandwidth to the customers. This means, that bandwidth cannot be guaranteed, but packets are labelled with high priority. These packets have higher probability to be transmitted over the network and higher priority than best-effort packets.
These kinds of interfaces are called in the TINA context Layer Network Federation (LNFed) inter-domain reference points. Domain federation is a static contractual relationship between providers and represents a pre-requisite for establishing services spanning different domains. Among various initiatives, relevant work has been done within the REFORM AC208 project . Within this project, a TINA compliant architecture for multi-domain connection management functionality has been specified and implemented.
