Communication systems targeted to emerging markets typically have to rely on intersite communication links with slow and often disparate link speeds. This can result in unequalized message transport delays between various points in the system, which can in turn lead to unfair call prioritization when a distributed system architecture is employed. This paper presents an approach that compensates for the variation in message transport delays in a distributed low tier communication system, allowing all end users to receive fair access to the offered services.
