Optimal Multiplexing on a Single Link: Delay and Buuer Requirements

  title={Optimal Multiplexing on a Single Link: Delay and Buuer Requirements},
  author={Abhay Parekh},
This paper is motivated by the need to provide per session quality of service guarantees in fast packet-switched networks. We address the problem of characterizing and designing scheduling policies that are optimal in the sense of minimizing buuer and/or delay requirements under the assumption of commonly accepted traac constraints. We investigate buuer requirements under three typical memory allocation mechanisms which represent trade-oos between eeciency and complexity. For traac with delay… CONTINUE READING
