Abstract

This paper shows the evaluation results of fast bandwidth reservation (FRP) methods applied to bursty traffics, e.g. a large file transfer, in ATM networks with long propagation delay. These traffics require a large bandwidth for a short time, i.e., bursty characteristics and a strict cell loss quality. For these traffics, an FRP instead of a call level bandwidth resservation is effective to utilize network resources under guaranteed QoS. Comparison among FRP methods with peak rate controls in terms of a transmission completion time is carried out under a short and long propagation delay. We compare two types of FRP and FRPs with three adaptive peak rate controls.Evaluation results show that confirmed type FRP is preferable to unconfirmed type FRP. In addition, we see from the results that FRP is preferable to unconfirmed type FRP. In addition, we see from the results that FRP with peak rate control using network availability information provides the shortest transmission completion time under light load conditions. However, the results also show that FRP with simple peak rate control using ACK/NACK provides fair transmission completion time under heavy load and long propagation delay conditions.
