Paper Abstract

The available bit service (ABR) is a promising 'best effort' service designed to achieve in ATM networks high efficiency and low cell loss. Since the ATM forum approved a first standard, intensive research has been done about ABR. The aim of this paper is to analyze the main research topics involved in ABR, namely: the evaluation of traffic and congestion control schemes, conformance definition and policing and charging.
