International Business Machines Corporation, Gerald R Woods, October 25, 1994: US05359593 (152 worldwide citation)

Access control for a packet communications network includes a dynamic bandwidth updating mechanism which continuously monitors the mean bit rate of the signal source and the loss probability of the connection. These values are filtered to remove noise and then used to test whether the values fall wi ...
