Paper Abstract

Data and telecommunications industries are using ATM in a number of applications and in several configurations, enabling companies to re-engineer important functions and effectively distribute the workforce as needed. In this paper, the authors will define and offer solutions to the issues and concerns of telecom/datacom mangers when providing enhanced network access via ATM. We quantify several important traffic management implementation and testing issues within an ATM network. Guidelines are presented for meeting quality of service requirements, for mapping source traffic descriptors into different service classes, and for measuring various traffic management parameters. Abstract test suite development is discussed with respect to performance testing, and guidelines are presented on performance testing in network and in application designs.
