Abstract

See full text

An arrangement and a method control the flow of signals including a number of information packets in a communications network, e.g. an ATM-network. The arrangement includes a device for separating the signals in the first traffic signals and second traffic signals. The first traffic signals are signals that have a higher proportion of guaranteed resources, i.e. bandwidth, than the second traffic signals. The first traffic signals are also given a lower priority than the second traffic signals. The first and second traffic signals are handled separately.
