Managing Latency Equalization Through Restored Routers
The authors propose a Latency EQualization (LEQ) service, which equalizes the supposed latency for all clients participate in an interactive network application. To successfully apply the proposed LEQ service, network support is necessary. Their network-based LEQ service provides equalized-latency paths between the clients and servers by redirecting interactive application traffic from different clients along paths that minimize their delay difference. The LEQ architecture uses a few routers in the network as hubs to transmit packets of interactive applications along paths with similar end-to-end delay.
