A new priority control of ATM output buffer

  • Chen ShanZhi
  • Yan Liemin


A new ATM output buffer management strategy with priority control function is proposed, based on four types of cell classes. This strategy can use system resource more effectively, meet the quality of service (QOS) requirements (i.e. cell loss probabilities and delay characteristics) of different services, and also can reduce the complexity of buffer. Furthermore, overload from lower priority traffic doesn't degrade the performance of higher priority traffic (i.e. cell loss rate and cell delay characteristics).
