Recently, ABR has been attracting attention as a new service category of ATM, and the methodology to realize ABR is being actively discussed in the ATM Forum. ABR is expected to become a suitable class for supporting LAN services on ATM networks. To this end, a technical foundation must be established in which bandwidth is effectively utilized and quality is guaranteed. In order for ABR to use a portion of the bandwidth that is not used by high-priority classes (CBR, VBR), it is necessary to appropriately estimate the unused portion of the bandwidth. Due to the fact that the unused portion of the bandwidth in ATM networks fluctuates, such fluctuations must be taken into account. This paper describes ABR connection admission control and design of the congestion detecting point in an ABR buffer using Allan variance of the unused portion of the bandwidth.
