Non-FIFO processing of flows by network nodes is not a rare phenomenon. Unfortunately, the state-of-the-art analytical tool for the computation of performance bounds in packet-switched networks, network calculus, cannot deal well with non-FIFO systems. The problem lies in its conventional service curve definitions. Either the definition is too strict to allow for a concatenation and consequent beneficial end-to-end analysis, or it is too loose and results in infinite delay bounds. Hence, in… CONTINUE READING
