Abstract

See full text

Each local node of a network adjusts the priority of messages passing through the node based on locally available information. If network topology is available, priority can be given to those messages which have the most hops to go. If source identity or time is/are known, the priority of a message can be upgraded for those messages which have already taken a long time or have already experienced a large number of hops. If destination address and network topology are additionally known, end-to-end QoS can tend to be equalized for all paths.
