Claim of US Patent No. 10,659,557

1. An information processing method comprising:prefetching a scheduling entry corresponding to a future time period in advance from scheduling information including a first starting time and one or more scheduling entries, each entry at least containing a transmission state and an interval for each of one or more transmission queues;
determining a second starting time of transmission for each of one or more frames waiting for transmission in each transmission queue, based on the scheduling entry and the first starting time;
performing a notification to prefetch a next entry from the scheduling information;
prefetching the next entry when the notification is received; and
at a future time that is a first future time or a second future time,
sending the notification based on an available time for transmission for each and every transmission queue at the first future time, which is a prospective time to schedule future transmission, or
sending the notification based on the available time of each transmission queue at the second future time, and a time difference between a current time and the second future time.
