    A set of asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) bearer service categories, differentiated in terms of quality of service (QOS), that will support the large spectrum of applications expected in broadband integrated services digital networks (B-ISDN) is defined. The evolution of applications and the traffic requirements in B-ISDN/ATM networks are described, and the evolution of network services to address... View full abstract»

    The problem of congestion control in high-speed networks for multimedia traffic, such as voice and video, is considered. It is shown that the performance requirements of high-speed networks involve delay, delay-jitter, and packet loss. A framing congestion control strategy based on a packet admission policy at the edges of the network and on a service discipline called stop-and-go queuing at the s... View full abstract»

    A traffic control architectural framework for broadband integrated services digital network asynchronous transfer mode (B-ISDN/ATM) is outlined. Network congestion control procedures are devised, complemented by specific end-terminal controls. The network congestion control system is partitioned into three domains: network-element internal, networkwide, and call-level controls. A selective discard... View full abstract»

    It is shown that peak cell rate policing can be combined with fast reservation protocols for achieving statistical multiplexing in asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) networks. A cell spacer-controller architecture which smooths out cell clusters according to the original period both at the user network interface (UNI) and at network node interface (NNI) is proposed. A performance evaluation of the s... View full abstract»

    Three approaches to the bandwidth management problem that have been proposed and studied by various groups are reviewed to illustrate three distinctly different approaches and identify their strengths and weaknesses. Based on these approaches, a bandwidth management and congestion control scheme for asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) networks that supports both point-to-point and one-to-many multica...

  • What should be the goal for ATM

    Two key features of asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) statistical multiplexing and continuous bit rate are analyzed. Both are claimed to provide the economic edge for ATM over other transmission and switching paradigms. It is argued that they have little chance to succeed in a high-speed environment, and even if they can be implemented, their benefits are hardly worth the complexity they add to the...
