Abstract

The authors develop a queuing model of a buffer that collects cells for reassembly into packets for a protocol layer above the asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) layer. Whenever the buffer fills with all packets incomplete, a packet must be sacrificed to make room for others. The queuing model estimates the equilibrium fraction of packets sacrificed. Applications to sizing the buffer for a prescribed loss probability are given.
