Abstract

See full text

Apparatus and method for shaping ATM cell traffic emitted onto a virtual path connection in an ATM network are described. Component virtual channel connections are arbitrated at an aggregation point utilizing an arbitration technique. The technique provides both virtual path shaping and controllability of underlying virtual channel connections with an improved fairness performance amongst all the aggregating virtual channel connections.
