This letter presents SAM, a multiplexer for ATM's circuit emulation services that can precisely control the cell clumping at the connection-level. Compared with a FIFO (First In First Out) multiplexer, it also improves the connection-level diffusion and CDV (Cell Delay Variation) performance. SAM can therefore significantly increase the number of connections accepted by CAC (Call Admission Control) procedures in the subsequent multiplexer.
