The broad spread of packet data networks and the emergence of applications in multimedia communications, has created a driving force towards an improved quality of service (QoS) model for today's Internet. A primary component of this model is packet schedulers. We introduce a new frame-based scheduling technique called mini round robin (MRR) that is primarily designed for providing lower latency bounds, and lower start-up latency bound for low-rate but high-priority flows. This enables applications such as voice-over-IP to demand low delay despite the low reserved bit rate of the voice sessions.
