The authors describe an ATM traffic control method to avoid both long-term and short-term congestion. Call admission control and policing based on user-specified traffic parameters have mainly been studied as ways to avoid long-term congestion. However, these control methods are not practical since it is difficult for users to specify accurate values of traffic parameters that include the effects of cell collision controllers and multiplexers in the customer premises network. In order to solve the problem, they propose an intelligent call admission control method. This method consists of a function to determine user's traffic parameters by monitoring the cell traffic flow of each service and a function to statistically predict long-term congestion by using Gaussian and Poisson distributions. They show that congestion can be predicted by deriving the peak, average, and variation. They also describe how to derive traffic parameters and determine their values. To avoid short-term congestion, we propose reactive control, which drops cells with lower cell loss priority when congestion occurs, and we show the buffer construction and buffer control algorithm used to achieve this. Computer simulations prove that their control strategy is effective for cell toss sensitive services such as VBR (variable bit rate) video service
