AFDX serves as a backbone network for transmission of critical avionic flows. This network is certified thanks to the WCTT analysis using Network Calculus (NC) approach. However, the pessimism introduced by NC approach often leads to an over-sized and eventually an underutilized network. The manufacturers envision to better use the available network resources by increasing occupancy rate of the AFDX network by allowing additional traffic from other critical and non-critical functions. Such harmonization of AFDX network with mixed criticality flows necessitates the use of QoS mechanism to satisfy the delay constraints in different classes of flow. In this thesis we study such QoS-aware network, in particular, based on DRR and WRR scheduling. We propose an optimal bandwidth distribution method that ensures the service required by critical flows while providing maximum service to other non-critical flows. We also propose an optimized NC approach to compute tight delay bounds. Our approach has led to computation of up to 40% tighter bounds, in an industrial AFDX configuration, as compared to the classical approach.
