Abstract
This report presents a cross section or potpourri of the numerous issues that surround the technical development of military IP networking over disadvantaged network links. In the first section, multi-media services are discussed with regard to three aspects: applications, operational characteristics and service models. The second section focuses on subnetworks and bearers; mainly impairments caused by characteristics of the wireless environment. An overview of the Iris tactical bearers is provided as an example of a tactical IP environment. The last section looks at how IP can integrate these two elements i.e. multi-media services and impaired sub-network links. These three sections are unified by a common theme, quality of service, which runs in the background of the discussions.
