Anand, SVR and Kumar, A (1995) Implementation and performance enhancement of a PC based LAN/WAN router with a differential QOS feature.

The authors describe their approach to, and experiences in, developing a PC based IEEE 802.3 LAN-X.25 WAN IP router. The basic router functionality is achieved by integrating a commercially available synchronous serial port card for the PC-AT bus, and their enhancements of public domain or licensed pre-production source code for the communication protocols. The router implements a strategy developed by Kumar et al. (1992) for providing differential QOS to bulk transfer and interactive traffic on WAN links. Various link level policies are studied to further improve the QOS. Several other performance issues that they encountered while developing the router are discussed. They study various task handling strategies for the router software to arrive at the ideal combination that gives the peak performance. The issues, and their resolutions for physical interface handling are detailed. Experimentation done to compare the various alternatives for resolving these issues are reported.
