Even though information in ATM networks is handled as fixed-sized packets (cells), packet-based scheduling is still needed in ATM networks. This letter proposes a packet-based scheduling mechanism that is based on comparison between a packet-based queue and a virtual queue that represents the queue length provided by a cell-based scheduling mechanism. Simulation results showed that this proposed scheduling allocates the bandwidth fairly to each connection.
