In order to accommodate periodic and bursty sources into ATM networks effectively, we propose phase assignment control (PAC), which actively controls the phase of the new connection at its connection setup phase. To realize PAC, we develop an algorithm to find a good phase of the new connection in a short time. Simulation results show that the PAC can improve the system performance.
