Abstract

This invention relates to a method for varying delay in the passing of data between a source and sink as coupled through a layered communications subsystem. The subsystem is responsive to a data-passing request from the source by allocating and processing a thread. A "thread" is a construct which includes a sequence of layer-processing primitives associated with the data-passing request. The thread is processed by counterpart layers to establish a physical and logical path connection between source and sink for passing the data therethrough.
