The major concern at a branch point in asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) networks for point-to-multipoint available bit rate (ABR) services is how to consolidate backward resource management (BRM) cells from each branch for a multicast connection. In this paper, we propose an efficient feedback consolidation algorithm based on an adaptive dynamic threshold (ADT) to eliminate consolidation noise and to reduce consolidation delay. The main idea of the ADT algorithm is that each branch point estimates the ABR traffic condition of the network through virtual queue estimation. Simulation results show that the proposed ADT algorithm can achieve a faster response in congestion status and a higher link utilization compared with the previous works.
