THE QUEUEING BEHAVIOUR OF ATM CELLS IN OUTPUT BUFFERS
In Chapter 3, we saw how teletrafﬁc engineering results have been used to dimension circuit-switched telecommunications networks. ATM is a connection-orientated telecommunications network, and we can (correctly) anticipate being able to use these methods to investigate the connection-level behaviour of ATM trafﬁc.
