  • Patent number: 5796719
    Abstract: The present invention relates to the issue of providing end-to-end delay guarantees in a multi-node communication system. More specifically, the present invention addresses the problem of specifying operational parameters of rate-controlled service disciplines in a communication network in order to efficiently provide end-to-end delay guarantees. The key contribution is a method for specifying leaky bucket parameters as well as scheduling delays at each node, which are used as inputs to the rate-controlled service discipline.
