Abstract

See full text

A method for controlling data transmission over a network includes receiving a succession of data packets from a packet input at a potentially variable input rate, each packet in the succession potentially having a respective, non-uniform packet size. For each of the packets in the succession, the respective packet size is compared to a transmission credit allocated to the input. If the allocated credit is sufficient, compared to the respective packet size, the packet is transmitted over the network at a peak transmission rate predetermined by the network. If the allocated credit is insufficient, compared to the respective size, at least a portion of the packet is transmitted over the network at a rate no greater than a sustainable transmission rate predetermined by the network, which sustainable transmission rate is less than the peak transmission rate.
