Packet scheduling is typically designed to support the delay requirements of video communications. In this study, a new innovative use of packet scheduling to provide loss guarantees is proposed. A packet scheduling scheme at a router that assures that intra and inter-stream loss requests for video transportation are met, and it was developed and evaluated using real video data. The results demonstrate the advantages of the proposed scheme, in terms of loss performance and fairness.
