Abstract

A generic flow control (GFC) protocol is proposed to regulate multiple terminals within the broadband-ISDN customer premises network. The GFC protocol is based on multi-priority distributed queuing preceded by a traffic shaping function, and meets the requirements for flexible allocation of service parameters, control of jitter and guarantee of bandwidth. This GFC protocol provides the necessary flexibility to match the constant bit-rate (CBR) jitter performance and variable bit-rate (VBR) service requirements to the particular service type. It integrates well with usage parameter control without imposing excessive burstiness on each virtual connection cell stream delivered to the network. By allowing connectionless users to access at the lowest priority, only when no higher priority users are queued, there is no reduction in guaranteed capacity available for other VBR and CBR users.
