In this paper we propose an effective Peak Rate Spacer (PRS) which can guarantee the negotiated peak cell rate almost perfectly even though contention of cells in the output link of the spacer occurs. We also propose a state-dependent Mean cell Rate Policer-Spacer (MRPS) which can manage the cell loss rate properly by controlling the buffer read rate according to the buffer state. As the MRPS has a cell buffer, it intrinsically has a traffic shaping function. Simulation results clearly show effectiveness of our PRS and MRPS.
