Recently a number of research groups have proposed connection-oriented access protocols that can provide a variable grade of service with performance guarantees on top of diverse networks. These connection-oriented internet protocols (COIPs) have different performance trade-offs. The purpose of this paper is to create a COIP-Kernel which can be used as a toolkit to implement any of the proposed COIPs. COIP-K features module interchanges and incremental software support. The paper presents the COIP-K implementation and its performance characterization.
