ATM is an important technology for implementing the B-ISDN, while TCP has become a core for computer networking. In this paper we study the performances of typical TCP traffic control schemes assuming the parallel ATOM switch, which is an efficient time division ATM switch. Computer simulation shows that early package discard (EPD) scheme outperforms tail dropping and partial packet discard (PPD) scheme in terms of throughput and delay, regardless of the size of the buffer and packet.
