This paper considers the problem of process allocation in designing real-time call setup for asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) networks. With the constraint of finite processing capacity in a realistic ATM switching system, we aim to minimize the call setup delay by avoiding the potential bottleneck process. Our approach is to distribute and balance the processing loads among call control processes via optimal capacity allocation. The derived results can provide important and useful guidelines in system design and performance evaluation.
