Asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) networks are designed to provide end-to-end transport of user data via virtual connections with specified quality of services (QOS), which is expected to be satisfied through effective traffic control mechanisms. This paper presents an adaptive delay-jitter control (ADJC) method that guarantees the delay bounds of constant bit rate (CBR) services in ATM networks. Our proposed method is based on a node-by-node time-frame scheme. Through both mathematical derivation and simulation, we have demonstrated that ADJC features a significant improvement over existing approaches in jitter delay, which can be reduced to one time-frame from end-to-end for CBR traffic. Simulation results have shown that CBR services receive satisfactory delay performance using our approach.
