One such method is implemented in a network device and comprises updating a traffic history with information associated with an incoming packet arriving from or destined to a subscriber link. The method also comprises calculating a drop probability for a next traffic instant and predicting a traffic rate for each of a plurality of flows on the subscriber link. The method also comprises determining whether the incoming packet conforms to a traffic policy associated with the incoming packet.
