Packet scheduling

Contention Management

The greatest challenge in packet networking is to configure all the elements of the network so as to deliver the right experience to each user at the right cost. Basic engineering capabilities taken for granted in the circuit world are lacking for packet networks.

We are able to model the customer experience, map this to application outcomes, and specify a fit-for-purpose network supply to ensure those outcomes. A new scheduling mechanism to ensure that this supply works appropriately has been developed by PNSol. It is based on the ∆Q Framework and called Contention Management (CM).

Service Assurance Wrapping

Point-to-point, point-to-multipoint and even fully meshed services can assured using PNSol CM technology. By ‘wrapping’ vanilla data transport services with real-time traffic management, high efficiency can be combined with assured delivery of differentiated services, suitable for:
  • Toll-quality VoIP;
  • High-integrity disc systems;
  • Remote working and flexible/distributed organisations;
  • Affordable videoconferencing;
  • Telehealth;
  • Smart grids;
  • 3/4/5G Small cells (3GPP over IP).
