We introduce the concepts of conservative cell loss ratio (CLR) estimation and worst case cell arrival patterns, and apply them to cell arrival patterns that conform to the generic cell rate algorithm (GCRA). We define new sets of cell arrival patterns which contain the worst case cell arrival patterns for conforming cell arrival patterns. Based on these sets, we propose an upper bound formula using the burst tolerance as well as peak cell rate and sustainable cell rate, and develope a connection admission control method that guarantees cell loss ratio performance satisfying its objective.
