Title
(EN) DEFRAGMENTATION OF COMMUNICATION CHANNEL ALLOCATIONS
(FR) DEFRAGMENTATION D'ATTRIBUTIONS DE CANAUX DE COMMUNICATION
Abstract
(EN)
Approaches scheduling and allocation of communication bandwidth across a communication channel provide the opportunity for improved network utilization. A network device is configured to allocating its bandwidth utilization within a communication network, wherein bandwidth allocation is governed by a utilization policy. The network device conducts communication activities within the communication network. When the network device deviates from the utilization policy in scheduling or conducting network activities, a penalty can be imposed on the network device for deviating from the utilization policy. Where one or more network conditions exceed predetermined tolerance levels, the offending network device can be required to reallocate its scheduled activities.

La programmation des approches et l'attribution de bande passante de communication sur un canal de communication permettent d'améliorer l'utilisation d'un réseau. Un dispositif de réseau est conçu pour attribuer sa bande passante au sein d'un réseau de communication, ladite attribution de bande passante étant régie par une politique d'utilisation. Le dispositif réseau met en oeuvre des activités de communication au sein du réseau de communication. Lorsque le dispositif réseau s'écarte de la politique d'utilisation s'agissant de la programmation ou de la mise en oeuvre des activités du réseau, une pénalité peut être imposée à ce dispositif du réseau qui s'est écarté de la politique d'utilisation. Lorsqu'une ou plusieurs des conditions du réseau dépassent des niveaux de tolérance prédéterminés, il peut être exigé du dispositif de réseau contrevenant qu'il réattribue ses activités programmées.
