Summary: 
In this paper, we introduce a VP rearrangement scheme to realize the dynamic control of ATM network. We demonstrate its effectiveness for the transport of B-ISDN traffic which is both fluctuous and hard to predict. First, we present a strategy for the ATM network provisioning, used to manage both the logical VP network and the underlying physical transport network. We then propose a VP rearrangement scheme and discuss its performance. Lastly, we analyze the proposed scheme by simulations, and confirm that its performance, in comparison to the conventional, dynamic VP bandwidth control scheme, is superior.
