Adaptive REM(AREM) is proposed to support real time traffic from non real time traffic in routers. In AREM, we classify the traffics into real time flows and non real time flows and the marking probability of non real time traffic is increased proportional to the amount of protected real time traffic until the marking probability reaches its maximum limit. Our simulation result shows that AREM provides improved overall performance to real time traffic in a sense of low loss rate and bounded delay.
