Asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) is a cell-based transport<br />scheme which can potentially carry a heterogeneous mix of traffic in an<br />integrated and efficient manner by statistically multiplexing bursty<br />traffic flows at the expense of buffering delay and cell loss. In ATM<br />networks, a suitable buffer management scheme is needed in order to meet<br />the required quality of service (QOS). In this paper, we propose a<br />buffer management scheme using two different prioritized state-dependent<br />service disciplines to improve the quality of service of delay time for<br />each traffic class and reduce the cell loss rate of loss-sensitive<br />class. We also analyze the delay time and the cell loss rate for each<br />class of traffic. The results indicate that in the proposed<br />state-dependent priority schemes, the delay time of one traffic class<br />greatly decreases while that of the other traffic class increases<br />slightly and the required buffer size for achieving the same cell loss<br />rate of loss-sensitive class is also reduced.
