We have proposed a very high speed internet (VHSI) abstraction that can provide a variable grade service with performance guarantees on top of diverse networks. An important component of the VHSI abstraction is a novel Multipoint Congram-oriented High Performance Internet Protocol (MCHIP). Features of this protocol include support for multipoint communication, the congram as the service primitive which incorporates strengths of both connection and datagram approaches, ability to provide variable grade of service with performance guarantees, and suitability for high speed implementation. This document introduces the VHSI abstraction and then focuses on the description of MCHIP. The protocol description includes packet types, sequence of packet exchange, and representative scenarios.
