Title: DATA BUFFERING CONTROL SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR A COMMUNICATION NETWORK
Abstract:
A data buffering control system and method for a communication network comprises a buffer disposed at a destination site, and a controller. The buffer is configured to buffer data received at a data receiving rate by the destination site for delivery by the destination site to a user at a delivery flow rate. The controller is configured to increase or decrease a buffering rate according to which the data is buffered in the buffer based on an amount of buffered data in the buffer without stopping the buffering of the data in the buffer. The controller is configured to perform a transmission control protocol spoofing process at the destination site to effect a communication handshaking operation, without the destination site communicating with a source providing the data, to control the data receiving rate by the destination site, to thus modify the buffering rate.
