Paper Abstract

Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) has been recommended by ITU-T as the transport method for broadband integrated services digital networks. In high-speed ATM networks different types of multimedia traffic streams with widely varying traffic characteristics and Quality of Service (QoS) are asynchronously multiplexed on transmission links and switched without window flow control as found in X.25. In such an environment, a traffic control scheme is required to manage the required QoS of each class individually. To meet the QoS requirements, Bandwidth Allocation and Call Admission Control (CAC) in ATM networks must be able to adapt gracefully to the dynamic behavior of traffic and the time-varying nature of the network condition. In this paper, a Neural Network approach for CAC is proposed. The call admission problem is addressed by designing controllers based on Neural Tree Networks. Simulations reveal that the proposed scheme is not only simple but it also offers faster response than conventional neural/neuro-fuzzy controllers.
