    TCP/IP based data communication is one of the most promising applications in wide area ATM services. However, it is noticed that TCP becomes the throughput bottleneck over an international ATM network with large propagation delay. The major reason for this problem is that TCP performs window based flow control and the maximum value of the window size is limited by 64 kbytes. Against this problem, ... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a dynamic virtual path (VP) survivability admission control mechanism for survivable ATM networks. This scheme integrates the dynamics of demand admission and logical spare capacity assignment for maximizing network resource utilization ratio while ensuring full traffic restorability under any single link failure scenario. The simulation results show that this mechanism is very... View full abstract»

    We first study the mapping of the Integrated Services IP (ISIP) traffic descriptors to the ATM counterparts, for the MPEG2 video traces developed in our lab. We employ the direct method of mapping and compare it with the indirect methods reported in literature. Second, we investigate the effects of internetworking on the ATM traffic descriptors, where ATM is to form a link in the path of a point-t... View full abstract»

    We study the performance of three switch implementations for the guaranteed frame rate (GFR) service category when used to provide a LAN interconnection service with a minimum guaranteed bandwidth. Our simulations show that the double-EPD implementation is sensitive to the maximum burst size (MBS) parameter of the GFR traffic contract, while an implementation based on weighted fair buffer allocati...

  • Logical ring with ATM block transfer to support connectionless service in ATM

    Publication Year: 1998, Page(s):154 - 158

    An architecture for ATM networks to provide more reliable transmission to support connectionless and multicast services for short message transmission is introduced in this paper. This architecture suggests to use a logical ring concept to form virtual legacy shared-medium networks in the ATM layer. With the use of ATM cell blocks and a Reed-Solomon code based cell-coding scheme in transmission, t... View full abstract»

  • Adaptive negative feedback congestion avoidance for ABR traffic in ATM networks

    Publication Year: 1998, Page(s):97 - 101
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (452 KB)

    Conventional negative feedback schemes have overall network congestion collapse problems when returning resource management cells experience extreme congestion. These schemes use an interval-based approach, which increases the complexity of implementation and often becomes expensive. To resolve these problems without network performance degradation, an adaptive negative feedback congestion avoidan... View full abstract»

    This paper investigates the important issue of interoperability among different explicit rate congestion control algorithms in multi-vendor (heterogeneous) ATM networks. We assume that each switch in the network implements only one of several known explicit rate congestion control algorithms. We investigate potential unfairness problems resulting from situations whereby certain ABR sources receive... View full abstract»

    ATM technology is facing challenges from integrated service IP, IP switching, gigabit IP router and gigabit Ethernet. Although ATM is approved by ITU-T as the standard technology in B-ISDN, its survivability is still in question. Since ATM-UBR (unspecified bit rate) provides no service guarantee and ATM-ABR (available bit rate) is still unattainable for most users, many existing users have little ... View full abstract»

  • Performance improvement of ABT protocols with combined bandwidth/buffer reservation

    Publication Year: 1998, Page(s):129 - 136
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (676 KB)

    ABT (ATM block transfer) is expected for effectively transferring highly bursty data traffic in ATM networks. In the past work, ABT/IT has been shown to be robust in that its performance is not much affected by the propagation delay when compared with ABT/DT. However, when the traffic load becomes heavy and/or when the number of hop counts of the connection becomes large, the throughput of ABT/IT ... View full abstract»

    SuperPONs are access systems based on optical tree infrastructure. They are an extension of APONs (ATM-based passive optical networks), from which they differ mostly by their size. This paper considers the applicability of APON medium access protocols in the SuperPON context. More specifically, a modified version of the APON protocol proposed in Stojanovski and Gagnaire (1997, 1998) is considered.... View full abstract»

  • Effect of ATM networks on the leaky bucket based characterization of IS-IP guaranteed service flows in an IP-ATM internetwork

    Publication Year: 1998, Page(s):176 - 185

    This paper addresses the problem of determining the change in the leaky bucket (LB) based characterization of a guaranteed service flow as it traverses an ATM subnet in an IP-ATM internetwork. The LB-characterization of the flow changes at the ATM network boundaries since overhead is added/removed and delay is introduced due to the mapping between IP packets and ATM cells. We obtained analytical r... View full abstract»

    The ATM ABR traffic management entails that the source controlled to the minimum supported by all the leaves of the multicast. Since the amount of feedback (i.e., the number of backward resource management or BRM cells) received by the source is proportional to the number of leaves (destinations) in the multicast tree, it is necessary for the branch points to properly consolidate feedback to avoid...

    Today, ATM networks are being used to carry bursty data traffic with large and highly variable transmission rates, and burst sizes ranging from kilobytes to megabytes. Obtaining good statistical multiplexing performance for this kind of traffic requires much larger buffers than are needed for more predictable applications or for bursty data applications with more limited burst transmission rates. ...

    This paper develops an efficient buffer management scheme that makes generic ATM switches capable of supporting delay-sensitive as well as loss-sensitive traffic. The proposed scheme aims at enhancing the performance of ATM switches by maintaining the head cells of output queues in relatively short dedicated output buffers, while maintaining the long tails of overflowing queues in a shared-memory ...

    The flexibility of ATM allows it to support various types of applications with diversified quality of service (QoS) requirements. We broadly classified these services into the delay sensitive (DS) class and the loss sensitive (LS) class. The scheduling problem for two priority classes is much more complex than the single priority class counterpart. The scheduling algorithm is required to satisfy t... View full abstract»

  • Enhancing the end-to-end schedulability condition of EDF scheduling for real-time applications

    Earliest deadline first (EDF) schedulers are known to be optimal with respect to achieving delay bounds in the single node case. For a session traversing a multi-node network, applying EDF schedulability condition at each node separately leads to very restrictive admission control policy for delay sensitive applications. Other scheduling disciplines such as PGPS, that take into account the delay d... View full abstract»

    The buffer management policy used at an IP/ATM gateway can significantly impact end-to-end performance for IP traffic (particularly apparent when IP traffic is transported using the ATM ABR service class). The ABR service is designed to achieve near-loss free operation in the core of the ATM network by adaptively shaping traffic at the edge of the ATM network. This can cause buffer build-ups to oc...

    Supporting guaranteed services in a large network requires solutions to many difficult problems. In this paper, we focus on the problem of on-demand routing of virtual circuits with quality of service guarantees.

    In this paper we address the problem of call admission and resource reservation control in ATM networks, where customers can book their connections in advance. This is very likely to be a realistic situation for services where customers order a connection to be established some time later. The proposed framework can be used for the admission and resource reservation control for leased line service... View full abstract»
