This paper studies how the self-similarity of traffic changes through shaper (buffered leaky bucket) and switch in ATM networks by numerical experiments. Further the applicability of CAC algorithm to shaped self-similar traffic is also investigated. Numerical experiments show self-similarity of total output traffic from shapers and switch is kept while connection-wise self-similarity is broken.
