Paper Abstract

Giving users simple access to QoS selection capability of ATM networks is important for the future of integrated services networks. We describe the first instance of an application in which users had the capacity to tune ATM traffic parameters with a button, at run time. To achieve this we implemented the necessary signaling extension on ATM switches as well as on end-systems. Furthermore, we extended Arequipa to support modification, and modified the popular Mbone tool Vic to use Arequipa to request and modify ATM bandwidth at will. We describe how Vic accomplished this over the ATM WAN of SWISSCOM, transferring live video from Lausanne to Basel over switched, renegotiable ATM connections.
