A Modified Deficit Weighted Round Robin traffic Scheduling Algorithm for GPON Networks

Md. Hayder Ali, Mohammad Hanif Ali

Abstract


In this paper, we propose the modified deficit weighted round robin (MDWRR) traffic scheduling algorithm for Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON), which guarantees the real-time priority traffic. The proposed scheduling algorithm is a variation of the deficit weighted round robin (DWRR) algorithm and it assures the highest priority traffic transmission with minimization of delay. WRR algorithm to be aware of bandwidth and improves the fairness. But for certain traffic types, fairness is not the desired behavior. To achieve predictable service for sensitive, real-time traffic, a priority level for scheduling needs to be introduced. By enabling strict priority, or by offering several priority levels and using DWRR scheduling between queues with the same priority levels, service assurance with regards to delay and loss protection can be achieved for demanding traffic types, such as voice and real-time broadcasting. By offering several priority levels and using DWRR scheduling between queues with the same priority levels, service assurance with regards to delay and loss protection can be achieved for demanding traffic types, such as voice and real-time broadcasting.
