Using IP network and proprietary hardware, we have created a network with two nodes. one streams out video and the other one receives and processes it. There is no way to control how fast the sending node sends its stream as it does so at a steady rate. The receiver however falls behind at times and can not keep up with incoming stream.
The question is what is the best way to synchronize the two so no packets are lost. The solution has to be something like a switch in between the two that buffers data when the receing node falls behind. if I am correct there has to be some communication between the receiving node and the buffer to communicate send and receive flags.
would Broadcom's BCM5315 5-Port 10/100 Switch with on-chip packet buffer would do this?
