Xunet 2 is a wide-area backbone network of ATM switches connected by 45Mbps links. In this paper, we match traffic performance requirements with performance guarantees of various scheduling disciplines in order to design a good scheduling discipline and admission control policy for Xunet 2. Detailed simulations show that our design allows Xunet 2 to efficiently carry both real-time and non-real-time traffic expected in future ATM networks.
