TAP (Trusted and Active PDU transfers) is a new distributed architecture and a protocol for ATM networks that provides assured transfers to a set of privileged VPI/VCI. The distributed architecture manages the privileged connections and offers an improvement In performance when network connections cause some cell loss. Our AcTMs (Active ATM switch) model supports the trusted protocol. This research also offers an attractive solution to the chaotic nature of TCP congestion control. Several simulations demonstrate the effectiveness of the mechanism that recovers the congested PDU locally at the congested switches with better end-to-end goodput in the network. Also, the senders are alleviated of NACKs and end-to-end retransmissions.
