Statistical Real-Time Channels on Multiaccess Bus Networks
August 1997 (vol. 8 no. 8)
pp. 769-780

Abstract—Real-time communication with performance guarantees is expected to become an important and necessary feature of future computer networks. In this paper, we present a scheme which can provide real-time communication services with both absolute and statistical performance guarantees on multiaccess bus networks for given input traffic characteristics and performance requirements. The proposed scheme reserves network bandwidth for real-time connections according to their needs. It also allows for independent addition and deletion of real-time connections while preserving existing guarantees. Our extensive simulation results for motion video communication have shown the proposed scheme to outperform the other well-known schemes.
