This paper presents the design of a fuzzy traffic controller that simultaneously manages congestion control and call admission control for asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) networks. The fuzzy traffic controller is a fuzzy implementation of the two-threshold congestion control method and the equivalent capacity admission control method extensively studied in the literature. It is an improved, intelligent implementation that not only utilizes the mathematical formulation of classical control but also mimics the expert knowledge of traffic control. We appropriately choose input linguistic variables of the fuzzy traffic controller so that the controller is a closed-loop system with stable and robust operation. We extract knowledge of conventional control methods from numerous analytical data using a clustering technique and then use this knowledge to set parameters of the membership functions and fuzzy control rules via fuzzy set manipulation (linguistically stated but mathematically treated) with the aid of an optimization technique named genetic algorithm (GA). Simulation results show that the proposed fuzzy admission control improves system utilization by a significant 11%, while maintaining the quality of service (QoS) contract comparable with that of the conventional equivalent capacity method. The performance of the proposed fuzzy congestion control method is also 4% better than that of the conventional two-threshold congestion control method
