Abstract:

Delay is a fundamental issue in packet communication networks. Previous work has focused on expected delay as a performance measure in queueing modele, in the context of routing. It is clear that some types of traffic are more sensitive to delay than others, and some simple priority structures have been proposed but the fact that expected delay is not very meaningful for certain applications e.g. packetized voice, which has a critical delay ceiling has received little attention.
