Abstract

See full text

Network-units like routers generate indication signals--defining qualities for flow signals each comprising packet signals--by detecting specifiers (classifiers, identifiers, addresses) in said flow signals and by generating said indication signals in dependence of said specifiers. In this case in the network-unit all flow signals belonging to a session are treated equally. By storing flow-information in a memory and generating said indication signals further in dependence of flow-information of previous flow signals, within a session certain flow signals can be treated individually, for rewarding flow signals with a higher quality (less delay) in case a session takes longer, and taking into account a certain threshold being exceeded or not. This can be done by adjusting quality indicators in flow signals (Diffserv) and by requesting qualities for flow signals (Intserv). Said flow-information preferably comprises information about a number of flow signals per session and/or time-interval.
