Rate monotonic algorithm has recently been proposed to be used along with traffic shapers to provide quality of service guarantee in ATM networks. In , a necessary and sufficient condition for admission control was derived assuming that cell arrivals are periodic (i.e., CBR traffic). For bursty traffic, this criterion is obviously conservative and may significantly reduce bandwidth utilization. In this paper, we present an efficient admission criterion for bursty or VBR sources. We assume that the traffic generated by a VBR source is regulated with a token bucket regulator. Our admission criterion takes into consideration of traffic characteristics. Since traffic characteristics changes from hop to hop, every network node is required to know how many hops a connection has traversed. Numerical results show that, compared with the conservative criterion which assumes periodic cell arrivals, system utilization can be largely improved using our admission criterion.
