Abstract

In this section, we will discuss various issues associated with maintaining the quality of service expected by the different types of telecommunication traffic which may be present in an integrated, multimedia network. The ATM network is expected to support several types of variable and continuous bit rate traffic having a broad range of bandwidth needs. Both low-rate voice and high-rate video services must be supported, along with transfer of short-duration bursty data files and long-duration bursty image files. The average and peak rates of the bursty traffic may range over a wide extent. Different types of traffic will have different delivery needs (allowable delay or latency, permissible frequency with which information might be misdelivered or lost). A network which is optimized for one type of traffic might be providing a quality of service which is inappropriate for other types of traffic.
