Summary

Chapter 3 covers basic concepts of traffic access control, including traffic contract or flow specification, traffic shaping and policing. Two examples are given: a cell shaping multiplexer for ATM networks that is based on dual leaky-bucket algorithm, and an integrated packet shaper for packet networks, which combines a traffic shaper and a worst-case fairness index (WFI) scheduler. A solution for time-stamp value overflow is also presented.
