We define a novel core network router scheduling architecture to carry and isolate time constrained and elastic traffic flows from best-effort traffic. To date, one possible solution has been to implement a core DiffServ network with standard fair queuing and scheduling mechanisms as proposed in the well-known “A Differentiated Services Code Point (DSCP) for Capacity-Admitted Traffic” from RFC5865. This architecture is one of the most selected solutions by internet service provider for access networks (e.g. Customer-Premises Equipment or satellite PEP). In this study, we argue that the proposed standard implementation does not allow to efficiently quantify the reserved capacity for the AF class. By using a novel credit based shaper mechanism called Burst Limiting Shaper, we show that we can provide the same isolation for the time constrained EF class while better quantifying the part allocated to the AF class.
