Paper Abstract

Because of the large statistical complexity of the traffic in communication networks, connection admission controls (CAC) often use only crude initial estimates of the required bandwidth for variable bit-rate connections. This is one reason why on-line measurements of the existing network traffic have been proposed. The well-known effective bandwidth formulation or recent worst case bounds could be used by CAC. On-line methods of estimating the received quality-of-serve of connections from `feasible statistics' could be used to modify the bandwidth allotment of such connections. Such bandwidth modifications occur at a time- scale between those of the packet level and connection (i.e., CAC) level.
