Abstract

See full text

System and method for dynamically altering bandwidth allocation to each region serviced by a network. Each region is allocated an initial estimated bandwidth on the network and compares instantaneous demand against the allocation. When demand falls below the allocation, the region releases bandwidth so other regions can take advantage of that bandwidth. When demand exceeds the allocation, the region takes advantage of bandwidth released by other regions.
