Dimensioning of an ATM Switch with Shared Buffer and Threshold Priority

  title={Dimensioning of an ATM Switch with Shared Buffer and Threshold Priority},
  author={John F. Meyer and Sergio Montagna and Roberto Paglino},
  journal={Computer Networks and ISDN Systems},
A number of recent studies have addressed the use of priority mechanisms in Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) switches. This investigation concerns the performance evaluation and dimensioning of a shared-buffer switching element with a threshold priority mechanism (partial buffer sharing). It assumes that incoming ATM ceils are distinguished by a space priority assignment, i.e., loss of a high priority cell should be less likely than loss of a low priority cell. The evaluation method is analytic… CONTINUE READING
