- Users share resources with equal priority
- Round Robin algorithm is used to distribute resources
- FIFO message queues

Explanation:
Let's assume user "A" and "B" are using the system and user "A" puts 10000 message into the queue, then user "B" puts 10 messages into the queue. In this case user "B" does not have to wait for the 10000 messages to be sent, the messages will be sent using the following policy: one from "A" and one from "B".
- Each user has an indepent message queue
- Users share resources with equal priority
- Round Robin algorithm is used to distribute resources
- FIFO message queues
- Unused resources are assigned to active users

Explanation:
Let's assume user "A" and "B" are using the system and user "A" puts 10000 message into the queue, then user "B" puts 10 messages into the queue. In this case user "B" does not have to wait for the 10000 messages to be sent, the messages will be sent using the following policy: one from "A" and one from "B".
