Link capacity sharing for throughput-blocking optimality
2004 (English)Patent (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
The invention concerns an efficient strategy for sharing link bandwidth in a mixed rigid-elastic traffic environment, as well as a strategy for sharing bandwidth among elastic traffic flows. The idea according to the invention is to sharing the link bandwidth among rigid and elastic traffic by dividing the link bandwidth into a first common part CCOM for elastic as well as rigid traffic and a second part CELA dedicated for elastic traffic. Subsequently, one or more admission control parameters for the elastic traffic are determined in order to restrict the number of elastic traffic flows simultaneously present on the link. In particular, by formulating a call-level model for elastic traffic and determining a maximum number NELA of admissible elastic traffic flows based on call-level constraints for the elastic traffic related to throughput and/or blocking, the so-called throughput-to-blocking trade-off for elastic traffic can be fully considered.
