Since the official standardization of explicit congestion notification (ECN) in 2001, the differentiated service (DS) bits 6 and 7 in packets are now classified for purposes of shaping and prioritization. These classifications are used to mark packet streams for controlling traffic flow in an intelligent satellite system (ISS). Using a forward link connection between a transmitting ground terminal to a geostationary satellite (GEO) acting as a relay, to a receiving hub back on the earth; a traffic shaping software which evaluates the ECN type or classification is used to control traffic flow and the results are observed.
