Abstract

See full text

In one embodiment, an intermediate node in a contention-based shared-media computer network determines a scheduled window within which a packet (with an assigned priority) should be transmitted by the intermediate node. In particular, the intermediate node may specifically determine whether an actual transmission time is prior to, during, or after the window, and sets a priority of the packet as either i) a reduced priority when the actual transmission time is prior to the window, ii) the assigned priority when the actual transmission time is during the window, or iii) an augmented priority when the actual transmission time is after the window. As such, the intermediate node may then transmit the packet from the intermediate node with the set priority at the actual transmission time.
