Patent Number: 8,880,942

Title: Electronic device and method of ensuring guaranteed services

Abstract: A method for ensuring guaranteed services for real-time traffic on an interconnect with errors is provided. The real-time traffic comprises a first and second traffic class (HRT, SRT). Real-time traffic of the first and/or second traffic class (HRT, SRT) is transmitted from a transmitter to a receiver. It is detected by the receiver whether an error has occurred during the transmission of the real-time traffic and the error is reported to the transmitter. At least part of the real-time traffic of the second traffic class (SRT) is re-transmitted by the transmitter if the transmitter has received an error report from the receiver within a predetermined time period.
