Explicit Forward Congestion Notification in ATM Networks
ATM networks provide the capability to transport traffic of vastly different characteristics over unified facilities. This, though, requires that traffic management policies be used to ensure that traffic streams do not adversely affect each other. Traffic management policies, in turn, are predicated on a set of network characteristic objectives. This paper analyzes a mechanism designed to help satisfy the following network characteristic objective: that delay insensitive data stream connections should be able to achieve the best possible combination of price and transport delay. This objective may be explained by way of an example.
