Traffic management plays an important role in providing differentiated quality of service to the users and to support the integration of a variety of broadband services within a common ATM network. Wireless ATM access networks, which are currently under investigation in standards bodies as well as in first field trials, introduce new protocols that are able(More)
Wireless ATM networks, which are currently under investigation , promise to support future multimedia applications. The medium access control (MAC) protocol of such systems plays a key role in providing differentiated quality of service (QoS). A variety of proposed MAC protocols use a centrally controlled flexible allocation of time slots. In order to(More)
ATM switches have to provide traffic management functions to meet the QoS requirements of different service categories. Among the traffic management functions we will focus on connection admission control (CAC) and priority control in this paper. Besides the mechanisms and algorithms behind these functions the issue of application to a concrete architecture(More)
