1. A method of reassigning connection capacity between prioritized connection classes in a multi-tiered network system, the method comprising the computer implemented steps of:

  • allocating a first transmission capacity to connections of a first priority class terminated by a first node and a second node in the network;

    allocating a second transmission capacity to connections of a second priority class terminated by the first node and the second node;

    identifying a first traffic load of the first priority class that exceeds a predefined threshold;

    responsive to identifying the first traffic load, reassigning a portion of the second transmission capacity to the first priority class; and

    responsive to reassigning the portion, directing a third node to reassign a portion of a transmission capacity of connections of the second priority class terminated by the third node to connections of the first priority class terminated by the third node.
