The authors present a shaper for handling non-real time cell traffic which can avoid the cell loss caused by the policing function at the next hop. A state-dependent probabilistic scheduling algorithm which selects a proper queue for cell transmission is introduced. For the purpose of performance evaluation, the cell loss ratio of the proposed shaper is evaluated by simulation.
