Hello, All,

I have some confusion about the SLA and admission control.
When the provider contracts the SLA with the customer
 - the provide check if the network can support the SLA and the provider make the contract when the SLA can be supported.

As far as I know, when the SLA mechanism is used in the DiffServ domain, the admission control mechanism is not required, I thought.
Is my thought correct ?
If not, please let me know why the admission control is required after SLA is entered into agreement.

Thanks in advance,

Geunhyung Kim
