A new service scheduling scheme, reactive bandwidth arbitration (RBA), is proposed as an effective way to arbitrate the contention among priority classes or between unicast and multicast services in ATM switching. The RBA scheme integrates two previously proposed concepts: bandwidth allocation and reactive arbitration. In, RBA, guaranteed bandwidth is allocated to a connection at call set up based on the traffic characteristics and service requirements, while the arbitration of cell delivery takes into account the queue status to react to traffic fluctuation. Through simulation, we found that by bandwidth allocation, a set of queue threshold levels can be obtained to provide a good approximation to the desired delay performance. Furthermore, around this initial configuration, a linear relationship between the queue threshold and the resulting delay performance can be established to fine-tune the configuration parameters for the desired delay performance. Similar effects were observed as the RBA scheme was applied to arbitrate the contention between unicast and multicast connections in a shared buffer ATM switch. The proposed RBA scheme was incorporated in a queue manager chip for an 8×8 shared buffer ATM switch with four priority classes per port and link rate at 622 Mbps. The chip has 130 k gates in a chip area of 137.88 mm2 and operates at 25 MHz
