Without Network Jitter Control receiving node packets destination BUFFER Packets bunch together and must be evened out at receiving node. For packets i and j: D(i,j) = (R j -S j ) - (R i - S i ) S R i: j:
With Active Jitter Control NODE Buffer destination Packets delay themselves within the network to reduce jitter.
Per Packet/Node Delay Delay history is maintained in smallstate to determine distribution. Packet delays itself to exactly Q d time units.
Per Packet Decisions n Packets know their content. n Packets know their network environment. n Packets make the optimal decision concerning how long to delay to minimize variance.
Finer Resolution In-Stream Control NODE Buffer destination Portions of image or other jitter sensitive data can receive different levels of jitter control within the same network stream.
Conclusion n Active networks allow generic packet level processing within the network. n Active networks can be used to benefit real-time applications.
