Abstract

See full text

The present invention provides a system and method for providing a different quality of service to a flow associated with an aggregate flow is provided. For an embodiment, the method comprises scheduling a plurality of data traffic flows in a communication network, the method comprising: (i) scheduling data traffic flows in a first category of data traffic, said first category of data traffic having a first bandwidth capacity associated therewith; (ii) determining whether any portion of said first bandwidth capacity is unused by data traffic flows in said first category of data traffic; and (iii) scheduling data traffic flows in a second category of data traffic providing said unused portion of said first bandwidth capacity for use for said data traffic in said second category.
