This paper presents a solution for providing differentiated capacity allocation in an access network. The system is based on CLAMP, an algorithm that can differentiate between flows sharing the same FIFO queue. The system is suitable for access networks, such as those based on DSL and HFC modems and wireless LAN access points. The deployment of CLAMP is completely contained within the access network; no changes to the remainder of the network are required. CLAMP provides the opportunity to enforce local policies on TCP flows that originate from sources distributed globally. The performance of CLAMP is verified by both simulation and analysis.
