Abstract

See full text

A traffic manager system is coupled to a communication system for scheduling transmission of data associated with a plurality of connections in the communication system. The traffic manager can include a schedule table, a global priority queue, and a scheduler. The schedule table includes a plurality of slot locations, each having a plurality of tunnel entries. The scheduler is coupled to the schedule table and the global priority queue. The global priority queue has a tunnel level associated with the plurality of tunnel entries of the slot. The scheduler processes the slot locations in the schedule table and sets a tunnel active in response to processing one of the plurality of tunnel entries.
