The controlled cell transfer capability

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A Controlled Cell Transfer (CCT) capability has been proposed to ITU for definition in Recommendation 1.371. The CCT capability, if accepted, will bring the number of ATM transfer layer capabilities to five. The other four capabilities being Deterministic Bit Rate (DBR), Statistical Bit Rate (SBR), ATM Block Transfer (ABT) and Available Bit Rate (ABR). It is believed that this capability will endow the ATM network with LAN like service over the wide area. In this article, we discuss the features and mechanisms of the proposed CCT capability. We also discuss the applications that CCT is targeted at supporting and present results of simulation studies, highlighting the advantages of CCT.
