Abstract

This thesis is concerned with the design and analysis of a high performance binary feedback flow control scheme primarily targeted at Available Bit Rate (ABR) services in Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) networks. Eventhough the focus is on ATM based ABR services the proposed binary feedback scheme and analytical approach is generic in nature and can be applied to other networks. A simple network model is considered where a conmion bottleneck distant queue is shared by a number of different round-trip delay source-destination pairs. The Mitra- Seery (MS) algorithm (Bonomi, Mitra and Seery, 1995) is used as a basis for adapting the source transmission rate.
