Generally, an allocation is understood to be an allotment or assignment. An allocation refers, as far as the subject of ITWissen.info's communications technology is concerned, to the frequency allocation or the allocation of transmission frequencies and frequency bands
and their use. For computers, allocation is about priority procedures around algorithms
used to allocate order in job processing and processor power. First Come First Served (FCFS), Shortest Job First (SJF), Round Robin (RR) and Earliest Deadline First (EDF) are just a few of them. The same is true for storage allocation or file management, for which there are file allocation tables. Port
allocation should also be mentioned in this context. Protocols are also about allocation.
