Abstract

Referring to Figure 1 below, currently the Data Center sends over a fixed amount of information to the paging infrastructure. This fiied amount does not exceed the phase length so that there is band- width space for other potential pages to be sent in the same frame.

TRAFFIC FLOW CONTROL FOR SERVERS FOR OPTIMAL USE OF BANDWIDTH

by Karl I?. Weiss and Liew Sze Thai

  Referring to Figure 1 below, currently the Data Center sends over a fixed amount of information to the paging infrastructure. This fiied amount does not exceed the phase length so that there is band- width space for other potential pages to be sent in the same frame.

  With the current model, FLEX frames can be sent over the air and are not fully utilized as shown in Figure 2. The remote servers have no informa- tion on the traffic conditions in the paging infra- structure for any particular frame.

A new model can be implemented as follows:

  1. The Data Center requests from the infrastmc- ture. for a slot of at least x bytes long which is priori- tized;

  2. Just before the Infrastructure needs to trans- mit the message, the infrastructure sends a message to the Data Center to enable it to send y number of bytes more than it had originally requested. This number may be zero if the traffic is heavy. This number y is a function of the traftic; and

  3. The remote server responds with the actual data to be sent which is x + y bytes in length.

  Other options are that the infrastructure may respond to send less than x...
