A Scalable Scheduling Mechanism with Application to Aal2/atm Multiplexing

Abstract

This paper describes the architecture of an ATM scheduler that performs cell spacing and respects additional time constraints. The scalable timing mechanism allows for real-time execution even in presence of many ATM virtual channel connections. The algorithm is suited as reference for special purpose implementations and the core idea can be adapted for scheduling problems in IP networks. In particular, a scheduling algorithm for an AAL2/ATM multiplexing device is presented.
