In this paper, we explore the potential of applying sojourn-time analysis in QoS metrics specification and in CAC algorithm design for ATM networks. We propose using the probability a link overflow occurs during a connection’s life as a measure of its QoS. Such sojourn-time based QoS metrics have big impacts on many network traffic management components, eg., CAC and routing. A CAC policy is accordingly designed which guarantees the so specified QoS for the entire life of each connection in the… CONTINUE READING
