We propose a new service discipline, called the Rate-Controlled Static-Priority (RCSP) queuing discipline, that can provide throughput, delay, delay jitter, and loss free guarantees in a connection-oriented packet-switching network. The proposed RCSP queuing discipline avoids problems in previous proposed solutions. It achieves flexibility in the allocation of delay and bandwidth, as well as simplicity of implementation. The key idea is to separate rate-control and delay-control functions in the design of the server. Applying this separation of functions will result in a class of service disciplines, of which RCSP is an instance.
