A flow control scheme on ATM networks with max-min fairness
Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) does not guarantee Quality of Service (QoS) for Available Bit Rate (ABR) service type during connection establishment. The bandwidth left for ABR traffics varies. Without adequate flow control, congestion can cause the degradation of network performance. In this paper, we propose an Explicit Rate calculating Algorithm with Max-Min fairness (ERAMM) for rate-based flow control. From analysis and simulation results, we know the ERAMM has the advantages of fast convergence, low oscillations, little parameter sensitivity, and high link bandwidth utilization with less buffer requirements.
