Using the rate control to restrict the peak cell rate of traffic is addressed. The asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) environment is considered as a discrete-time environment in which one slot is equal to one cell transmission time. A rate control that can restrict the number of cells during any fixed-length time interval in a discrete-time environment is studied. The scheme is realized by means of simple counter accumulation per slot, and it is easy to synchronize with slots. The simplicity of this scheme may make possible the flexible restriction of the peak cell rate according to network conditions. The scheme is analyzed, using matrix analytic techniques, in order to investigate the smoothing effect of bursty traffic and the queue length required to satisfy a certain quality of cell loss probability. Numerical results show the effect of restricting the peak cell rate of bursty traffic and the tradeoff between the smoothing effect and the required queue length
