Abstract

See full text

A system and method of moving information units from a network processor toward a data transmission network in a prioritized sequence which accommodates several different levels of service. The present invention includes a method and system for scheduling the egress of processed information units (or frames) from a network processing unit according to stored priorities associated with the various sources of the information units. The priorities in the preferred embodiment include a low latency service, a minimum bandwidth, a weighted fair queueing and a system for preventing a user from continuing to exceed his service levels over an extended period. The present invention includes a plurality of calendars with different service rates to allow a user to select the service rate which he desires. If a customer has chosen a high bandwidth for service, the customer will be included in a calendar which is serviced more often than if the customer has chosen a lower bandwidth.
