Method and System for a Novel Flow Admission Control Framework

No network can expect to guarantee the QoS if it admits more traffic than can be sustained by the network. It is a general consensus that without flow admission control (FAC), the Internet's QoS problem can not be solved. This invention presents a new FAC framework that keeps the stateless property of the Internet, allow statistical multiplexing gains, and can handle admission control of both TCP and UDP flows.
Technology Benefits
1. Can solve the seemingly unsolvable QoS problem in the Internet
Technology Application
- High definition video distributed through P2P

Title: Method and system for a novel flow admission control framework
Usefulness: Method and system for a novel flow admission control framework
Summary: Method for admitting flows e.g. premium-class transmission control protocol (TCP) flows and premium-class user datagram protocol (UDP) flows, into a symmetric network e.g. tree topology network, nonblocking network (all claimed) and packet network.
Novelty: Flows e.g. premium-class transmission control protocol flows, admitting method for e.g. tree topology network, involves detecting setup packet of flow, and blocking additional flows when traffic overflow occurs
