This paper describes a new network architecture, called the Versatile Network Architecture (V - NET), which provides a framework for flexible support of communication requirements in real-time networks. V-NET differs from other proposed architectures in that it has been designed to support a variety of packet scheduling algorithms and traffic policing mechanisms. In addition, we use simulations to validate V-NET, providing an assessment of the correctness of the scheme in guaranteeing the real-time performance requirements of a wide range of multimedia applications and quantify and analyze the effects a variety of V-channel traffic profiles, QoS requirements, and scheduling policies on the performance of the V-NET.
