The traffic generated by multimedia applications presents a great amount of burstiness, which can hardly be described by a static set of traffic parameters. The dynamic and efficient usage of the resources is one of the fundamental aspects of multimedia networks: the traffic specification should first reflect the real traffic demand, but optimise, at the same time, the resources requested. This paper presents an example of application able to accommodate its traffic to managing QoS dynamically. The paper is focused on the technique used to implement the Dynamic Reallocation Scheme (RVBR) taking into account problems deriving from delay during the reallocation phase.
