We develop a general model, called latency-rate servers (/spl Lscr//spl Rscr/ servers), for the analysis of traffic scheduling algorithms in broadband packet networks. [...] Key Result The theory of /spl Lscr//spl Rscr/ servers enables computation of tight upper bounds on end-to-end delay and buffer requirements in a heterogeneous network, where individual servers may support different scheduling architectures and under different traffic models.Expand
An efficient packet fair queueing (PFQ) architecture for latency rate server
TLDR
This paper proves that all the latency-rate (LR) servers only need to calculate their system virtual times once per packet service time, no matter how many packet arrivals occur in this interval. Expand
An M/G/1 Queuing System with Multiple Vacations to Assess the Performance of a Simplified Deficit Round Robin Model
TLDR
This paper proposes and solves a specific worst-case model that enables to calculate quantiles of the queue length distribution at any time (and hence average delays) as a function of the offered load, when the arrival process is Poissonian. Expand
Analysis of Frame-Based Fair Queueing under Self-Similar Traffic
TLDR
This paper analyzes FFQ under self-similar traffic source in terms of the delay experienced in FFQ and compares it to the delays in Packet-by-packet Generalized Processor Sharing (PGPS) and Self Clocked Fair Queueing (SCFQ). Expand
Pre-order Deficit Round Robin: a new scheduling algorithm for packet-switched networks
TLDR
This work describes a new scheme, Pre-order Deficit Round Robin, which overcomes the problems of DRR and provides an analysis on latency and fairness, which shows this scheme as a better alternative to DRR. Expand
Flexible Scheduling Discipline for Fixed-Size-Packet Switched Networks
TLDR
This paper shows that ARR is in the class of Latency Rate servers, therefore all results of LR-servers can be applied for ARR, and presents the fairness-index of ARR which is one of the most important feature of schedulers. Expand
Analysis of Multi-Server Scheduling Paradigm for Service Guarantees during Network Mobility
TLDR
An exclusive multi-server scheduling algorithm specifically tuned for mobile routers equipped with multiple wireless interfaces and has attained multiple care-of-address registrations with its home agent to demonstrate higher degree of reliability and scalability of service provisioning to flows during mobility.

Instant Service Policy and Its Application to Deficit Round Robin
TLDR
This research suggests a novel policy of Instant Service, which is applicable to any round-robin schedulers, and applies this policy to DRR, makes a variation called DRR with Instant Service (DRR-IS), and proves it is still an $\mathcal{LR}$ server. Expand

TLDR
Three modified scheduling schemes are proposed which preserve the rate guarantees of fair queueing (and hence preserve deterministic delay bounds) but adaptively redistribute the excess bandwidth such that either losses are reduced or delays equalized. Expand

TLDR
Contrary to conventional belief, it is shown that appropriate modifications of the weighted round robin (WRR) service discipline can, in fact, provide tight fairness properties and efficient delay guarantees to multiple sessions. Expand
Block-based fair queuing: An efficient network QoS provisioning algorithm for high-speed data transmission
TLDR
