The basic idea behind an Active Queue Management (AQM) is to sense the congestion level within the network and inform the packet sources about, so that they reduce their sending rate. In literature a lot off mechanisms of AQM are studied. But there are not used in the context of the DiffServ architecture where different types of packet with different requirements of QoS share the same link. In this paper, the authors study an access control mechanism for RT and NRT packets arriving in a buffer implemented at an end user in HSDPA. The mechanism uses thresholds to mange access in the buffer and gives access priority to RT packets.
