We have proposed a very high speed internet (VHSI) abstraction for the next generation of internetwork. An important component of the VHSI is a novel Multipoint Congram-Oriented High Performance Internet Protocol (MCHIP). The congram is the basic service primitive of MCHIP which incorporates strengths of both connection and datagram approaches. MCHIP supports two types of congrams: the user congram (UCon) and the persistent internet congram (PICon). A UCon is similar to a soft connection and can be used to provide strict performance guarantees to applications that need it. PICon are long lived congrams between MCHIP entities, and their purpose is to provide a shared communication channel for a number of applications. This paper reviews the MCHIP protocol and then focuses on PICon management.
