The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) has defined the Guaranteed Service (GS) with firm delay and bandwidth guarantees in the Integrated Services model for supporting real-time services. Before setting up a GS flow, the traffic parameter of the source have to be specified in terms of a number of token bucket traffic descriptors. The source must conform to these descriptors by shaping its traffic. In this paper we study a novel traffic shaper for efficient transmission of MPEG video streams over GS. We develop an analytical model of the traffic shaper, and also carry out numerical simulation of the transmission performance to verify the analytical model. Our study also provides a methodology to determine the token bucket traffic descriptors that have to be specified during flow set up
